A pastor from Nigeria who impregnated 20 woman from his church claims he had sex with the women because the Holy Spirit told him to.
The alleged religious man, Timothy Ngwu, has been arrested by police for abusing young girls and married women at the Vineyard Ministry of the Holy Trinity in the African country of Nigeria.
As well as telling the woman to have sex with him, essentially for the sake of God, Ngwu’s behavior was finally reported to the cops by his estranged wife, Veronica, who also claimed he made her underage niece pregnant.
The Enugu State Police, who investigated the claims, said that the accused believed he was obeying a spiritual urge to carry out the will of God, “irrespective of whether the woman is married or not.”
A spokesperson for the police, Ebere Amaraizu, said, “When the woman is delivered of the baby, the child remains in the ministry with the mother for life.”
Nevertheless, the pastor claims he never had sex with any married woman who didn’t get express permission from her husband to sleep with Ngwu. He even alleged that two women in particular, Calista Omeje and Assumpta Odo, both left their husbands to live with the pastor based on the “holy commands.”
According to Ngwu’s brother, who wished not to be named, said he had warned people about his brother for many years, but was ignored.
“God’s anger has befallen my brother, we have severally appealed to him to stop what he was doing but he refused. He has colonised our compound, bearing children with recklessness. He accused us of being jealous of him because he is doing the will of God,” he said.
The brother went on to speak about the pastor and his antics, telling reporters, “He sacked his betrothed wife who has three children for him and embarked on impregnating married women and young girls. Look at the whole compound littered with children of different sex and age.”
He concluded as follows.
“Let them sort themselves out with the police but I want the ministry to be shut down completely.”
