Enugu: Pastor Converts Mother, Daughter Who Are Church Members To His Wives

-

- Advertisment -

A pastor, Mr Timothy Ngwu, was on Monday docked at an Enugu North Magistrates’ Court for allegedly converting another man’s wife and daughter as well as another woman to his wives.

Veronica Ngwu, the pastor’s wife was said to have petitioned the court over the development. The victims whom Ngwu converted to his “wives’’ were said to be members of his church: Gods’ Favor Ministry, Nsukka.
One of the victims, Mrs Calista Omeye, however, told the court that her husband, Mr Fidelis Omeye, had persuaded her to meet the pastor as he wanted her to do the will of God through the pastor.
“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 quit and I had a baby for the pastor but the baby died after some weeks,” she told the court.
The pastor who hailed from Ihe-Owerre, Nsukka, was absent from the court as he was said to be on admission at an hospital in Enugu.
The presiding magistrate, Mrs R.I. Oruruo, adjourned hearing in the matter to Sept. 26.
