A sign of the end time was manifested by a 62-year-old pastor in Ibadan, Pastor Isaiah Ojo, when he allegedly took the seven-year-old daughter of his friend and fellow pastor, Bidemi (not real name), laid her on the altar of his church and had carnal knowledge of her. Though the incident occurred on Monday, May 9, 2016, the little girl had yet to stop bleeding as at Friday, May 13, when Crime Reports stumbled on the story. It was learnt that the randy pastor was arrested on Thursday, May 12 by Egbeda Division of the Oyo State Police Command after initial disappearance, but it was unclear what his motive was in committing the act on a church altar.
Information gathered by Crime Reports revealed that Ojo who is the founder and pastor Dayspring Family Chapel, Egbeda area, Ibadan, committed the act when the seven-year-old girl went to the church premises with her younger brother to play, as they were wont to do. The girl’s vagina was reportedly badly torn by forced penetration that she had been bleeding since the occurrence.
Narrating her experience in the hands of Daddy Dayspring, as the suspect was popularly called, to Crime Reports, Bidemi said: Daddy Dayspring is my father’s friend. On Monday, my younger brother and I went to greet him. While my brother was playing outside, Daddy Dayspring asked me to lay on the rug. “He laid beside me, removed my underpants and then removed his trousers. He first put his fingers in my private part. He later put his joystick in my vagina and I cried. He removed it and blood started coming out. He warned me against telling anyone, saying that I would die if I did. It was when I went outside to urinate that I noticed that blood was coming out of my private part.”
Narrating how he discovered his daughter’s condition, the victim’s 50-year-old father, who would simply be identified as Pastor T, stated: “I was not aware of what happened on that Monday because I attended a revival held by Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, Egbeda. On Tuesday evening, I overheard her elder brother saying: “tell Mummy”, but I did not pay attention because I thought it was the usual children’s pranks. “It was my wife who told me to check my daughter’s private part and when I did, I noticed that her pants were stained with blood. Thinking that something injured her, I quickly rushed her to the health centre; but was surprised when I saw that the blood was coming from her private part when the nurses checked her. She was treated and we returned home.
