A Pastor, Chris Mcdouglas,has been arraigned before the Ikeja Sexual Offences and Domestic Violence Court on Monday for allegedly defiling a 17-year-old chorister in his church.
According to the Nation, Mcdouglas, a pastor at Peculiar Generation Assembly Church, Lagos, is facing a nine-count charge bordering on defilement and sexual assault by penetration before Justice Ramon Oshodi.
Led in evidence by the Director of Public Prosecutions, Dr Babajide Martins, the victim’s mother told the court that the defendant had sexual intercourse with her daughter on many occasions between 2017 and 2020 under the pretence of taking her out for gospel ministration.
According to the witness, the defendant had sex with the survivor at the back of his church, several hotels, and her home.
She said, “Pastor Mcdouglas would come to my house and ask my daughter to follow him for ministration so as to use her talent as a chorister to bless others.
“According to my daughter, he would branch to a hotel and have sex with her.
“When I confronted him with some leaders in the church, he said he was deceived by the devil and pleaded with me to forgive him.”
