More facts have emerged on how Pastor Jeremiah Godman Iziduh of House of David Full Gospel Church, located at No. 13 Jemede Avenue off Giwa Amu, GRA Benin City, Edo State, allegedly turned a widow and her three daughters to sex slave, impregnating two of them.
P.M.EXPRESS reports that Pastor Iziduh claimed that they were sowed as seeds to his Church by their late father. He then changed their names under false Oath at Benin High Court as his biological daughters while sleeping with them including their mother.
It was gathered that the 44-year old Pastor Iziduh forcefully took the widow, Mrs. Olulu Akika, as his wife and went to the Commissioner of Oaths and swore an affidafit that the widow was his wife and the daughters were his biological children. But when he realised that the widow will not be able to bear him a child, he started sleeping with her daughters and impregnated two of them while two were said to have escaped his trap.
He was also said to have collected every document and property left behind by their late father and claimed that he also sowed them to his Church as seed in 2003 when the victims were minors.
In the affidavit sighted and sworn by Pastor Iziduh dated 7th December, 2015, before the Commissioner of Oaths in the Benin High Court, Iziduh claimed under oath that the victims were his biological daughters yet he was sleeping with them as he wished.
Pastor Iziduh landed in Police net following a petition written to the Commissioner of Police by the eldest daughter of late Henry Akika, Mrs. Maureen, through her lawyer, Barrister Francis Okanigbuan.
In the petition dated 27th February, 2020, titled Criminal and Immoral activity of Pastor Iziduh, the petitioner alleged that after the death of their father, Pastor Iziduh hypnotized her mother and five children and moved them from the family house to his own house while instilling fear into them with fake vision and prophecies.
The petitioner stated that Pastor Iziduh impregnated two of her sisters; one of them was forced to divorce her husband and come back to Iziduh, who impregnated her and she had two children for him while also impregnating the second one, who is heavily pregnant for him.
The three other sisters were said to have been hidden in an undisclosed location, where he may likely defile them because he did not allow them to go to school but only engaged them as Church workers.
P.M.EXPRESS gathered that one recently escaped remaining two and their mother, who were said to be in captivity.The petitioner pleaded with the Police to intervene and rescue the other victims and bring Iziduh to book for his conduct. She is also appealing to the Human Rights community to rescue her family from Pastor Iziduh.
This was confirmed by Mrs. Maureen, who said that Pastor Iziduh has been claiming that their late father used his property including one of his children to sow seed to the Church and he decided to take all of them including their mother despite the fact that their late father was never a member of his church.
