One Pastor Mathew Olakunle of Christ Apostolic Church (CAC), Oke-Itura, Iju in Akure North local government area of Ondo State, has been accused of impregnating a housewife, Mrs. Omotola Akerele, who underwent spiritual healing in his church.
Olakunle(pictured) denied the allegation. He however, admitted allegation that he slept with Mrs. Olakunle’s younger sister twice and had seen their mother’s nakedness.
Olakunle and Mrs. Akerele were guests on a programme on Adaba FM, Akure where they traded words after she was sent packing by her husband for being pregnant by the pastor who was said to be fond of praying for women in the nude.
Going into history of how they met, the 32-year-old woman said her mother introduced her to him when she had cough.
According to her, “He told me that he wanted to use my private part’s hair to perform some spiritual work that would solve my problem. On the night of that first day we got there, he asked me to put off my clothes in the presence of my mother to pray for me in the mission house.
“Since that day, he has been asking me to come for deliverance and when I got there he would ask me to remove my clothes and climb on me nakedly and started praying for me.
“On the seventh day, he shaved the hair of my private part and armpit and put it in the white handkerchief. After that, we had sexual intercourse and after the intercourse he asked me to go and bury the hair with the handkerchief.”
She explained that a month after they had sex, she found out that she was pregnant and aborted it, adding that her husband got to know about the abortion, and the circumstances surrounding it and consequently divorced her.
Denying responsibility for her pregnancy, and admitting sleeping with her younger sister and praying for their mother nakedly, Olakunle said of what transpired between him and his accuser: “On the third day of the spiritual exercise, I shaved her private part’s hair and I touched her private part with my manhood and I told her to be using it to rob the entrance of her private part so that she would discharge.
“After that, I wiped the discharge on her private part with the white handkerchief and I prayed for her using psalm 24. After the exercise, I asked her to go and bury the handkerchief in the bush and at the same time inform her husband to sleep with her thereafter. But she refused, that was why I performed the act without having intercourse with her.”
