The married pastor was also accused of molesting those that lived with him for over 5 years.
They claimed that he started the “Father Me” series where he encouraged people to undergo fatherhood, just for him to use the chance to allegedly molest those girls who took him as a father.
His female victims are reportedly “extremely hurt and broken”.
When his action was made public and members started demanding a solution , he reportedly closed The Ark Church and moved elsewhere to open another church.

Journalist Akan Imoh also called him out stating that he et al. investigated the allegation against the Pastor and everybody they spoke to ”confirmed” the story.

He said he’s “deeply sorry” to everyone his “actions and inactions have hurt”.
He added: “The truth is, i used to be involved in inapproprite behaviour with females over a few of years.”
He continued: “I went against the sexual purity message I preach and believe .”
