Yesterday, May 4th, pastor Michael Oliseh has been sentenced to life imprisonment by Justice Abiola Soladoye of Domestic Violence and Sexual Offences Court sitting in Ikeja, Lagos State for defiling his friend’s 12-year-old twin daughters.
In her judgment, Justice Soladoye described Mr. Oliseh, who’s the assistant Pastor of the Anointed Chosen Vessel Ministry in Okota, Lagos, as a “serial rapist” who took turns defiling his friend’s daughters.
The Judge said, “His conduct is unbecoming of a pastor. Having been found guilty as charged with the two offenses, the defendant is hereby sentenced to life imprisonment.’’
She said that the sentences should run concurrently and that his name is entered in the Sex Offenders Register of the Lagos State Government.
The presiding judge also said:
“Parents of the survivors lack discipline and ought not to have sent their children to go stay in Oliseh’s house. Children are not to be entrusted with randy adults. They should be kept in the hands of responsible adults who have their goodwill at heart. The need for responsible parenting cannot be overemphasized.”
The defendant was said to have defiled the survivors after their father had entrusted them in his care and traveled to the village for burial. The prosecution added that he then threatened the survivors that their father would become jobless if they told anyone about the sexual encounter.
The convict was caught by one of the neighbors after he had chased one of the survivors in the compound and dragged her with her underwear.
