A sixteen-year-old girl who was impregnated by a Lagos pastor, Tunde Daniel, and lost her fallopian tube to an ectopic pregnancy, underwent multiple abortions for the priest, the police have revealed.
It was reported last week how Daniel was arrested after the case came to light through the Child Protection Network that the head of the Royal Heritage Church, Mafoluku, Lagos, had been s§xually abusing the teenager since she was 15.
He had taken the girl to the High Rocks Hospital, Oshodi-Isolo, claiming to be her guardian and that she was impregnated by her boyfriend.
The hospital claimed that a procedure was conducted on her to save her life when it was learnt that her case had become critical due to the ectopic pregnancy.
But the police has identified another hospital where the pastor had allegedly taken the girl for abortions in the past.
The doctor of the hospital, God’s Own Clinic, Iyana-Ipaja, who was identified as Dr. Nosa, was arrested.
On Thursday, Nosa and Daniel were arraigned before an Ikeja Magistrate’s Court, Lagos on four counts of defilement, conspiracy, abduction and unlawful abortion on a child.
They were later granted bail in the sum of N500, 000 each with two sureties in like sum.
They were both remanded at the Kirikiri Maximum Prison pending when they would be able to meet their bail conditions.
The case has been adjourned till January 11, 2018.
The Coordinator of CPN in Isolo and Ejigbo, Mr. Ebenezer Omejalile, who brought the case to light, said the Department of Public Prosecution had already requested for the case files on both men.
