An unscrupulous self-styled 53-year-old Nigerian pastor who impregnated more than 20 members of his congregation, including several married women and young girls, has been arrested for sexual abuse after claiming he was instructed by the Holy Spirit to have sex with them. DSP Ebere Amaraizu, a spokesman for the Enugu State Police Command told journalists that the general overseer of Vineyard Ministry of the Holy Trinity, Pastor Timothy Ngwu, was arrested for sexually abusing his female members.
“The pastor claims to be obeying prophetic/spiritual injunction to do the will of God, which is to impregnate anyone chosen and revealed by the Holy Spirit, irrespective of whether the woman is married or not,” said Amaraizu. “When the woman delivers the baby, both child and mother remain in the ministry for life,” he added.
According to police sources, Ngwu was reported to the police by his estranged wife, Veronica Ngwu, who got fed up with his promiscuous behaviour after he impregnated her young niece. A brother of the pastor, who did not want to be identified, told the bewildered press that he had been warning Ngwu and his family about his detestable behaviour for a long time but he refused to listen. The arrest, he said, was God’s wrath falling on his brother. “Let me tell you, God’s anger has befallen my brother. We have severally appealed to him to stop what he was doing but he refused. He has colonized our compound, bearing children with recklessness. He accused us of being jealous of him because he is doing the will of God,” the brother revealed desolately.
“Look at these buildings here,” he said pointing to the church compound, “Ngwu has converted all of them to himself in the name of vineyard. I can’t say exactly what informed his spirit to the devilish act in the name of God. He divorced his betrothed wife who has three children for him and embarked on impregnating married women and young girls. Look at the whole compound littered with children of different sex and ages,” he lamented further.
“How can an educated man of his status reason like an unrefined man? All members of the vineyard are fools, how can a woman abandon her husband for another man in the name of worshiping God and practice adultery? I cannot get myself involved in this matter; Vero has opened the vessel of worms in the vineyard. Let them sort themselves out with the police but I want the ministry to be shut down completely,” he added.
The unapologetic and disgraced Ngwu told journalist he has approximately five wives with 13 children along with concubines he acquired by the prophetic will of God. He said he never had sex with any of the married women unless their husbands agreed with the request of the Holy Spirit.
Calista Omeje and Assumpta Odo, two of the women who left their husbands to live with the pastor said they did so based on the pastor’s prophetic anointing. Calista, who has 10 children with her husband, said Ngwu had impregnated her but the baby died. She also revealed that she gave her daughter to him. Odo, a mother of eight, said Ngwu impregnated her and her daughter.
