A Nigerian Pastor with the Assemblies of God Church, Rev. Uche Okereke of Iyana Ipaja branch, Lagos State, has dragged a 19-year-old Muslim boy, Moruf, to court for impregnating his 17-year-old daughter, Chioma.
The cleric before the court disclosed that the Muslim boy was responsible for his daughter’s decision to abandon her family.
Chioma, a secondary school student who abandoned her studies to start living with Moruf however claimed she could not leave the relationship as she was already bound to Moruf.
Decrying his daughter’s relationship to the fashion designer, Chioma’s father told the court: “For the past five years, I have looking for Chioma and did not see her until last week when information got to me where Moruf was hiding her and have changed into Muslim faith.
“She was rescued and Moruf was arrested by the Police and detained at the station.”
According to PM News, Moruf was arrested by the Police and charged with kidnapping but Chioma claimed she willingly moved in with him as they are lovers who had been together for years.
Deciding on the case, the presiding Magistrate, Akeem Fashola declined to take Moruf’s plea and referred them to family court.
