Lagos Bishop arrested over alleged sexual molestation of members
A team of policemen from Elemoro Division of the Lagos State Police Command, weekend, stormed the Peculiar Generation Assembly at Eputu London in Awoyaya, Ibeju-Lekki area of Lagos, arresting the General Overseer, Bishop Chris Omosekpa.
Vanguard reports that Omosekpa’s arrest was sequel to a bench warrant issued against him by Justice R. A. Oshodi of the Lagos State Sexual and Domestic Special Offences Court, GRA Ikeja.
It was learned that Omosekpa allegedly molested some of his church members, among whom were minors. He was alleged to have manipulated them through false prophecy and intimidation. The clergyman is said to have been initially arrested by policemen at Makinde Police Station, Mafoluku, Oshodi and charged to the Ogba Magistrate’s Court where he was granted bail under special circumstances after his lawyer claimed he had COVID19 and tuberculosis.
The report claims that immediately after his bail, Omosekpa embarked on a campaign misinforming members of the public that he had been discharged and acquitted.
Confirming the arrest, the spokesperson of the Lagos state Police command, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, said:
“The arrest was sequel to a bench warrant issued against him by Justice R. A. Oshodi of the Lagos State of Sexual and Domestic Special Offences Court, GRA Ikeja.”
