Pastor arraigned for abducting, sleeping with housewife

A 34-year-old pastor of the Global Influence Ministry, Joseph Igwemon, has been arraigned before an Oredo Magistrate’s Court, Benin, Edo State, for alleged abduction and having carnal knowledge of a married woman, Mrs. Stella George. George, who is member of the church and also a chorister, was wedded with her husband, Mr. Paul Nosakhare, by Igwemon.

The cleric was, however, arraigned on a two-count charge bordering on abduction and act likely to cause breach of peace. He was accused of sleeping with George inside his office on the church premises. When the charges were read to him, the accused pleaded not guilty.

The charges read in part: “That you, Pastor Joseph Igwemon, on the 15th day of October 2018 about 1200 hours in your church, Global Influence Ministry, at No 16 Owoseni Street, off Mission Road, did conduct yourself in a manner likely to cause the breach of peace by having carnal knowledge of Stella George, who is a chorister in your church, having wedded her and her husband, Paul Nosakhare, and thereby committed an offence punishable under Section 249 (d) of the Criminal Code Cap 48 Vol II Laws of the defunct Bendel State of Nigeria 1976 as applicable in Edo State.

“That you, Pastor Joseph Igwemon, on the same date, time and place in the aforesaid magisterial district, did abduct Mrs. Stella George by keeping her in your house for months, knowing that she is married and thereby committed an offence punishable under Section 361 of the Criminal Code Cap 48 Vol II Laws of the defunct Bendel State of Nigeria 1976 as applicable in Edo State.” The presiding magistrate, Mrs. Isi Ukhun Iyoha, granted the pastor bail in the sum of N200,000 and a surety in like sum who must be gainfully employed. Iyoha adjourned the case to November 29, for definite hearing.
