Timothy Ngwu, the General Overseer of Vineyard Ministry of the Holy Trinity, located at Ihe/Owerre, Nsukka in Enugu State, has been arrested for putting no less than 20 members of his church in a family way.
The pastor claims to be obeying prophetic/spiritual injunction to do the will of God, which is to impregnate any one chosen and revealed by the Holy Spirit irrespective of whether the woman is married or not.
“When the woman is delivered of the baby, the child remains in the ministry with the mother for life,” he said.
According to the spokesman of the Enugu State Police Command, Ebere Amaraizu (DSP), security agents got wind of the activities of the said pastor when his wife made complaints over multiply incidences of sexual abuse perpetrated by her husband.
Amaraizu said: “Vineyard Ministry of the Holy Trinity was not known until her operatives from the Anti Child Trafficking unit of the state criminal and investigation department, stormed the place based on the complaint they received from wife of the pastor, Veronica Ngwu, bordering on sexual abuse of people in the ministry which has brought about indiscriminate pregnancy among married and single women in the ministry.”
Mrs. Ngwu allegedly told the police that her husband used to be a well known Catechist in Nsukka Catholic Church, adding that some of the members’ wives are now living with him after he impregnated them all.
It was further disclosed that while acting under the same alleged will of God, the randy pastor got his wife’s niece pregnant.
Reacting to the allegations against him, the General Overseer stated that he has about five wives with thirteen children, apart from other concubines, who came as a result of the prophetic will of God. He claimed that he does not do anything with any married woman until full consent and agreement is reached between him and the husband in line with the directives of the Holy Spirit.
Calista Omeje and Assumpta Odo, two of the women who had left their husbands and are now living with the General Overseer confirmed that they did so based on the prophetic injunction to do the will of God.
