A 53-year-old pastor who reportedly impregnated 20 members of congregation claims the Holy Spirit ordered him to possess sex with them.
Nigerian police have now arrested Timothy Ngwu for abusing the girls and women at Vineyard Ministry of the Holy Trinity.
Ngwu’s abusive behaviour was finally reported to the authorities by his estranged wife Veronica who eventually got fed up with his adulterous behaviour – and reportedly impregnated her young neice. A spokesperson for the Enugu State Police command revealed he claims to be obeying the ‘spiritual’urge to carry out the will of God,‘irrespective of whether the woman is married or not.’ Ebere Amaraizu added: ‘When the woman is delivered of the baby, the child remains in the ministry with the mother for life.’
Ngwu revealed he’s 13 children with five different wives and the mistresses God’s ‘prophetic’will told him to acquire. He also claims he never had sex with any married woman unless their husbands consented to the Holy Spirit’s request. Calista Omeje and Assumpta Odo both left their husbands to reside with the pastor predicated on these holy commands. Mother-of-eight Odo said Ngwu impregnated both her and her daughter, whose age isn’t known. And Calista – who has 10 children with her husband – said the pastor impregnated her but the child died. She also revealed that she ‘gave’her daughter to him.
The pastor’s brother – who didn’t desire to be identified – said he’d warned both Ngwu and his family in regards to the self-proclaimed clergyman’s behaviour for quite a while however they refused to listen. He claims the arrest is ‘God’s wrath falling on his brother ‘, adding: ‘God’s anger has befallen my buddy, we’ve severally appealed to him to avoid what he was doing but he refused. ‘He’s colonised our compound, bearing children with recklessness. He accused us to be jealous of him because he’s doing the will of God.’
Pointing at the church’s compound, he continued: ‘Look at these buildings here… He’s converted them all to himself in the name of vineyard. ‘He sacked his betrothed wife who has three children for him and embarked on impregnating married women and young girls. Go through the whole compound littered with children of different sex and age.’ ‘All members of the vineyard are fools, how do a lady abandon her husband for another man in the name of worshiping God and practice adultery? I cannot get myself associated with this matter.Let them sort themselves out with the authorities but I would like the ministry to be power down completely,’ he added.’
