In the many heartbreaking stories of prostitution in Nigeria, prostitution in religious houses is probably one of the most heartbreaking of all.
The place where children and women are mean to be put on the right track becoming a place harbouring menace is unfathomable.
The height of it all is when the pastor is not only pimping the girls for a ridiculous amount of money, but the girls being pimped are teenagers, whom on the contrary are meant to be tutored.
Somewhere in Ogun State, a 54-year-old woman, who is also a Pastor, named Idowu Olupinla was arrested by the police. She was said to have allegedly been operating a prostitution cartel with teenagers.
The woman, who was the founder of Cherubim and Seraphim Church, Ijoko-Ota, Ogun State, was paraded by the police, together with some of her victims at Eleweran Police Headquarters, Abeokuta.
According to the Police, these girls lived in the Church Premises with this woman where she perpetrated her evil acts.
When one of the victims was asked why they chose to live there, she said a lot of them were from broken homes and having nowhere to go, decide to stay with this woman. She said they all then were lured into prostitution because they were staying with her.
The 16-year-old girl who was interviewed said there were about 10 of them living with this Pastor. The ridiculous part of it is that she sells them out for just N500 and to make matters worse, she (the Pastor) would take N300 and give the girls N200
“We are about 10 with Mama, and she always arranged men for us to have s*x,” she said. “She created an apartment within the church premises, where the men sleep with us. We charge N500 per s*x in which Mama will collect N300 and give us N200.” She said.
The girl further mentioned that they always made an average of about N1,500 per day inclusive of Mrs Olupinla’s (the Pastor’s) commission.
This teenager also mentioned in her statement that they were made to commit several abortions at that young age and she herself had had 5 abortions in a space of one year.
The Pastor who specialized in arranging male s*x customers for the teenage girls, aged 14 to 16 was arrested at her church premises on number 52,Okesina Street. Ijoko Ota, Ogun State while the victims were taken to the hospital.
The woman was to be charged to court for human trafficking and child abuse.
It is such a sad story considering that these children went to that seeking refuge and sanity. What they didn’t know was that they were going from the frying pan to fire. Really, no one is to be trusted at this time because anyone can be the pathway to doom.
Also, remember a while back when nuns came out to talk about how the priests were raping them. This is to show that even the religious houses aren’t free from all these menaces troubling the society.
