Israel Adebayo, the general overseer of The Beloved Chapel, was detained by members of the Ogun State Police Command for allegedly defiling a 14-year-old member of his church at Agbado, in the state’s Ifo Local Government Area.

This was revealed in a statement released on Sunday by the state police public relations officer, SP Abimbola Oyeyemi, who also said that Adebayo was detained as a result of a complaint made by the victim’s mother.

The preacher was quickly taken into custody after the DPO Agbado Division sent detectives to the area in response to the report, the man stated. During questioning, the preacher begged for pardon after confessing to defiling the victim.

According to preliminary investigation, the suspect would have been detained long ago, but the victim’s mother obstructed the action out of fear of upsetting her pastor.

However, the victim had no choice but to call the police when she began bleeding consistently from her privates ever since the event in October 2021. According to the victim, the pastor was the first person to have sex with her. She is presently receiving medical care in a hospital.

According to the PPRO, the mother mentioned that her daughter sang in the church choir and claimed that the pastor enticed her into his room where he allegedly had illicit relations with her.
