Kwara State Shaken by Cleric’s Arrest for Defiling Three Minors

In a shocking revelation that has stirred the community of Agah Village in Ilorin, Kwara State, a cleric has been arrested on charges of defiling three teenage girls. The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) confirmed the arrest of Prophet Olayinka Ajiboye, 45, who is accused of committing these heinous acts against minors aged between 13 and 17 years.

The NSCDC, which had been monitoring the cleric’s activities following several complaints, acted on a tip-off and apprehended Ajiboye on Tuesday. The Public Relations Officer of NSCDC, ASC Ayoola Michael, disclosed that the suspect had been under surveillance due to his alleged pattern of harassing and sexually assaulting minors.

One of the victims, Joy Godfrey, came forward with a harrowing account of her experience. She reported that Ajiboye lured her to an unfamiliar house in the Sango area of Ilorin and sexually assaulted her. The victim also stated that the cleric forced her to swear on the Bible to keep the incident secret, threatening dire consequences if she spoke out.

Another victim, whose name has been withheld, revealed that Ajiboye began abusing her at the age of 16. She recounted that the cleric impregnated her and coerced her into taking drugs to terminate the pregnancy, which led to severe bleeding lasting several months. The suspect allegedly threatened her life if she disclosed their illicit relationship.

The third victim, also a member of Ajiboye’s church, reported that she was defiled at the age of 13. She was unable to report the abuse to her mother due to the suspect’s threats of death if she exposed him.

Dr. Mohammed has called upon the public to support the NSCDC’s efforts to combat gender-based violence and assured that justice will be served in accordance with the law.
