A 53-year-old pastor who reportedly impregnated 20 members of congregation claims the Holy Spirit ordered him to sleep with them. South African police have now arrested Pastor Oyatunde Ogejuru for abusing the young girls and women at Vineyard Ministry of the Holy Trinity. Ogejuru’s abusive behaviour was finally reported to the police by his estranged wife Veronica who grew tired of his adulterous behaviour – and reportedly impregnated her young neice.
Police told media that he claims to be obeying the ‘spiritual’ urge to carry out the will of G0d, ‘irrespective of whether the woman is married or not.’ added: ‘When the woman is delivered of the baby, the child remains in the ministry with the mother for life.’ The pastor’s brother – who did not want to be identified – said he had warned both Ogejuru and his family about the self-proclaimed clergyman’s behaviour for a long time but they refused to listen.
He claims the arrest is ‘G0d’s wrath falling on his brother’, adding: ‘G0d’s anger has befallen my brother, we have severally appealed to him to stop what he was doing but he refused. ‘He has colonised our family house, bearing children with recklessness. He accused us of being jealous of him because he is doing the will of G0d.’ Pointing at the church’s yard, he continued: ‘Look at these buildings here… He has converted all of them to himself in the name of vineyard.
‘He sacked his betrothed wife who has three children for him and embarked on impregnating married women and young girls. Look at the whole yard littered with children of different gender and age. ”All members of the vineyard are fools, how can a woman abandon her husband for another man in the name of worshiping G0d and practice adultery? I cannot get myself involved in this matter. ‘Let them sort themselves out with the police but I want the ministry to be shut down completely,’ he added.’
