The Oyo state police command have arrested a 62-year-old clergyman,
Olusegun Oyetunji, for taking nude photos of his female members and
attempting to use the images to blackmail them.
Trouble started for Oyetunji when one of his victims, a 28-year-old
lady he took her nude photos, fell out with him after she discovered he
was a fake pastor. Oyetunji threatened to release her nude photos online
if she doesn’t come back to his church and if she stops having sex with
To ensure her pictures were deleted, she reconciled with the
clergyman with the hope of getting a hold of his phone and deleting her
pictures. She was shocked to discover the nudes of other women including
a 17-year-old in his phone. The 17-year-old girl had met the clergyman
when she took her mother to the pastor for prayers. He told the
teenager that she had family issues that only his prayers can resolve.
He asked her to see him in his church for special deliverance. It was
during the special deliverance that he annointed her, including
her private part, and also took her nude photos with the promise of
using it to pray for her. In the course of the deliverance sessions,
Oyetunji started having sex with the teenager.
When interrogated, Oyetunji recounted how he started his sexual relations with his first victim, the 28-year-old lady.
“I went into cleric work after getting a calling from God. I pastor
the Gospel Ministers Commission. I didn’t found it myself; the founder
asked me to take over shortly before he died.
For the first victim, one day, I went to a hospital in Awe, Oyo, to
see one of the members of the church who was ill, and I prayed for him.
Then, some staff members of the hospital also asked me to pray for them,
which I did.
They also pressured me to tell them what God was saying concerning
them. They gave me a room in the hospital so I could deliver the message
to them and I did. That was how I met one of them, the 28- year-old
lady (name withheld).
She later came to me to seek counsel for her problems. She said
several men had dumped her in the past. This happened in 2018. We prayed
together and I couldn’t get a clue, so I told her that she would have
to come back.
After some days, she returned and I gave her anointing oil to rub on
every part of her body, which she did. The next time she came, I
anointed her, I anointed every part of her body, including her private
part. That was the starting point; later, we had sexual intercourse.
That was the deceit of the enemy. I can’t blame anybody for it but
myself” he said
