A self-acclaimed pastor in Adamawa has been accused by one Mr Eli Daniel of having a sexual relationship with his wife.
The man who is said to be a staff of the Federal Ministry of Power in Abuja alleged that one pastor, Ebenezer Otinjele, has been sleeping with his legally married wife for four years.
Naija News understands that Daniel reported to the police that his wife, Juliana Daniel had two children with the pastor who works in the same office with her. The Girei self-acclaimed clergy was charged with adultery, causing abortion, criminal trespass and threat to life.
Daniel said though his wife had vowed to him that the two children at their care are his, but that he never believed, alleging that she had met with Pastor Otinjele in different places, including even in their matrimonial home when the children were away at school.
Confirming the incident, the Adamawa State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Suleiman Nguroje said the accused clergy and Mrs Juliana have been arrested sequel to a petition by one Barr Sule J Abdul, a counsel to Mr Daniel, Juliana’s husband.
