A pastor, Mr Timothy Ngwu of Gods’ Favor Ministry, Nsukka, was on Monday docked at a Magistrates Court in Enugu North for converting another man’s wife and daughter to his wives.
According to Vanguard, Veronica Ngwu, the pastor’s wife petitioned the court over the development. The women he was said to have converted were members of his church.
However, one of the victims, Calista Omeye, told the court that her husband, Fidelis Omeye convinced her to meet the pastor as he wanted her to do the will of God through the pastor and it was with his consent that their daughter was given to the pastor in marriage.
“My husband was a member of the church and he introduced me to the church, because he said that the pastor had a revelation for me (Calista). She said the revelation had to do the will of God but he later left the church but I refused to leave the church with him.
I have 10 children for him and we were all members of the church before he quitted. I had a baby for the pastor but the baby died after some weeks.”
On marrying her daughter to the Pastor, she said,
“It is not true that I gave out our daughter in marriage to the pastor without the consent from my husband, he was aware of everything.”
The pastor was absent from the court as he was said to be on admission at an hospital in Enugu and the presiding magistrate, Mrs R.I. Oruruo, adjourned hearing in the matter to September 26.
