A pastor who is identified as Jeffery Ihievu has been arrested by the Edo State Police Command for indecent assault after he touched the private parts of a pregnant woman.
It was gathered that the pastor with the Assemblies of God Church in Esan South East Local Government Area of the state was arrested after trouble broke out between him and the husband of the pregnant woman.
According to a report, it was gathered that the pregnant had gone to visit the pastor to complain about bad dreams she has been having since her pregnancy started.
Pastor Jeffery Ihievu then told the woman she needed deliverance in order to stop the bad dreams from re-occurring so she asked her to undress then he applied the anointing oil on her private part and breast.
The woman reported the incident to her husband after she claimed she could no longer feel the baby moving in her belly and subsequently reported it to the Edo State police in Beni City which led to the arrest of the pastor.
Speaking to Beadysworld correspondent in an interview, Pastor Ihievu said he applied anointing oil on the woman’s private parts for deliverance purpose.
“I actually did it for deliverance purpose and nothing more. She complained to me about her situation, and l took her to my office where l used the anointing oil on her private part, and l do not mean harm.
Her husband even brought thugs to attack me at home.” he said.
The police said an investigation on the matter is ongoing.
