Pastor found with 13 girls in sex harem claims Satan used him

03 September 2016, 07:09

Lagos - A pastor was arrested by the Lagos State Police Command on Friday on the suspicion of harbouring 13 under-aged girls as sex slaves in a three bedroom harem, Punch reports.

The much-loved Chukwuemeka Nwocha, who was referred to as 'daddy' by his Tongue of Fire Restoration Ministry congregants has claimed that Satan had used the children against him after telling him that they would like to visit him.

"I only tried to help the girls. When the first girl came, she said she did not have anywhere to go. I did not know her parents. I am a pastor and I felt pity for her.  After spending three days, I told her she needed to go out and bring some of her relations so that they would know where she was. But she did not. Later, some parents in my church also said they would like to send their children to live with me. Some of them came to spend holidays after their exam," Nwocha said.

The pastor went on to deny allegations that he raped the girls and forced them to have abortions. He claimed that he was sexually involved with one 17-year-old girl who he said he planned to marry.
