To the unsuspecting public, Adekunle Kayode, pastor in charge of Jesus Is The Way Evangelistic Ministry, Olorunsogo, Abeokuta in Ogun State, South-West Nigeria, was a powerful man of God. What they did not know was that he relied on satanic charms to run his blossoming ministry.

Pastor Kayode’s cup became full when he was exposed by one of his female adherents following a failed attempt by his special assistant to rape the church member, allegedly on the pastor’s instructions.

The police launched investigations into the case after getting a complaint from the 20-year-old female church member that Onatade Oluwasegun employed the use of a charm while attempting to rape her as directed by Pastor Kayode possibly for a ritual but she miraculously escaped.

“The police have recovered the charm from the pastor within the church premises,” Ogun State Police Public Relations Officer, Muyiwa Adejobi, said yesterday in a statement.

He disclosed that both the 34-year-old Pastor Kayode and 23-year-old Oluwasegun had been arrested for conducting virginity test on a 20-year-old female member of his church in Abeokuta, using his finger.

The police said that the pastor’s arrest was effected out when the victim narrated her ordeal to her father who then informed the police of the incident.

The pastor was reported to have been engaging in the act in the church weekly in a bid to confirm the girl’s virginity status.

According to the PPRO, “There was also a drama when the victim received ‘holy spirit’ which propelled her to reveal the misdeeds of the pastor who has indulged in this ungodly act for years.

“Another suspect arrested for similar offence is one Onatade Oluwasegun, 23, of 4, Sheriff Onatade Street, Obantoko for conspiring with the said pastor to use the victim for a ritual purpose.

“The father of the victim alleged that the duo were fond of dipping their fingers in the victim’s private part even when she was menstruating for reasons best known to them.

“She also claimed that the pastor recently confirmed her virginity status when she was to take part in a church programme.”

The PPRO disclosed that “the Commissioner of Police, Ogun State, Ikemefuna Okoye, has directed that the matter be transferred to the SCID, Eleweran for further investigation.”
