Redeemed Church Pastor Arraigned for Allegedly Raping & Impregnating Daughter

by Ohepo Ohepo

On Tuesday, February 27, Emmanuel Orekoya, a pastor of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, was charged with sexual offenses and domestic violence in the Ikeja Sexual Offenses and Domestic Violence Court. He is accused of raping and impregnating his 17-year-old daughter.


The Lagos State Government has proposed two counts of illicit sexual intercourse and sexual assault against the defendant.

In November 2022, a video allegedly featuring the daughter of RCCG Wisdom Tabernacle Parish Lawason Lagos pastor Orekoya Emanuel went viral, claiming that her biological father had slept with her for more than two years, knowing her mother.


Additionally, it was learned that the defendant allegedly impregnated his daughter during a sexual encounter.

The state’s prosecutor, Mrs. Abimbola Abolade, informed the court on Tuesday, February 27, that the defendant had committed the offenses at some point in 2017 in the state’s Odoeran, Itire region on Jacob Adeleye Street.


Additionally, the prosecution testified in court that Orekoya had sexually abused the woman by sticking his finger and penis inside her mouth.


The prosecutor said that Orekoya’s offenses violated Section 137 of Lagos State’s 2015 criminal code.


The accused, however, entered a not guilty plea to the allegations made against him.


The matter was postponed by Justice Soladoye until April 17, 2024, when the trial was to begin.
