Bizarre! Randy Pastor defies Mum, Daughter in Owerri – husband claims N100,000



A fraudulent and adulterous Pentecostal Pastor who has been having sexual relationship with a mother and her teen-aged daughter has been exposed and arrested.

Pastor Wisdom (surname withheld) was picked up by the police Easter weekend and charged with receiving N100,000 from one Mr. Sylvester (surname withheld), a police officer, in order to cure his wife Mrs. Angela, a mother of six, from Ezinihitte Mbaise, of breast cancer.

The Pastor due to be granted bail is the owner of a Church located along MCC/Uratta Road in Ebikoro, Umuoba in Owerri North Local Government Area, of Imo State. He is married with eight children who reside in Mbieri with their mother and merely visit the pastor.

Reliable information revealed that the fake Pastor had been on his destructive mission for years. He was formerly a tenant of Mrs. Angela, his latest victim and her husband Sylvester at their home in Umuorii Uratta. He was living there, running a church and also indulging in sexual relationship with Mrs. Angela and at least one other woman, loosely identified as sister Ijeoma, both members of his church.

The orgy went on secretly unknown to Mr. Sylvester and other family members, although it is now known that Mrs. Angela’s ten-year-old son once caught “the Pastor on top of his mum” in the pastor’s room but did not immediately tell his father.

Mr. Sylvester was also said to have once alerted his extended family that he did not like how the pastor behaved towards his wife and young daughter. He later asked him to park out, amidst threats from his wife.

Mr. Sylvester confirmed the story:

“I don’t know what occultic thing he’s doing with my wife. The pastor was living here in one room and using the parlour as church. All of us used to go to his church at Umuoba but I don’t know what happened and he came here. My wife and children will go to his church and his wife will come on Sunday from Mbieri with the children and leave after church,” he said.

“There was another member of the church called sister Ijeoma. One day, I realized that sister Ijeoma was sleeping with the pastor and I warned them. Again, I went there one day and saw sister Ijeoma’s pants and bras hanging in the pastor’s room. I got angry and asked the pastor to move.”

Mrs. Angela objected strongly to the quit notice and even swore to move with the pastor. But eventually, her husband prevailed and the pastor moved to his present location on Mcc/Uratta road.

Things, however, came to a head when Mrs. Angela was diagnosed with cancer and she opted for spiritual healing under her Pastor and lover.

“I asked my wife several times if she was doing anything with the pastor and she swore to me there was nothing, so I trusted her,” said Mr. Sylvester.

Over a year ago, Mrs. Angela took her eldest daughter, 16, and moved into a shack provided for them within the pastor’s church.

Earlier, she told the village women that she was studying theology at the church. Later she admitted she was sick and believing God for a healing through Macdonald whom she claimed was also a doctor.

Reliable information confirmed that it was while Mrs. Angela was sick that she literally “donated” her daughter to the pastor as a sex toy.

While Mrs. Angela practiced her deception, several of her friends, family and members of her village women’s groups visited her at the church and made donations in cash and kind for her maintenance.

She claimed the cancer was getting better although there were visible signs that she was deteriorating and her condition getting worse. Twice she came home briefly to see her children and to bury her father at Mbaise. But she returned to the “shelter” soon after because she could not bear the noise and the healing wasn’t yet completed.

Confirming the story, her embattled husband who paid the pastor N100,000 and also supported his wife said he awoke recently with a revelation that the Pastor was sexually abusing his wife and daughter.

“I invited my daughter and asked her and she admitted it. I went to Angela and asked her she too admitted. I also took her to Mbaise to her people and she confessed it before her elder brother – Mula, and the rest,” he said.

It was when Mr. Sylvester could not bear it anymore that he decided to blow the whistle. Meanwhile, his wife’s condition has worsened with the left breast bleeding, smelling and dropping off on its own.

The pastor was arrested last week as Mr. Sylvester wanted to recover the money he paid for his wife’s treatment. He also said that his wife had admitted having a “covenant” with the Pastor but did not disclose its nature.

“I don’t know what occultic thing the man is doing with my wife. What I want is for him to pay me back my N100,000 and also break the covenant he has with my wife,” Mr Sylvester said.

Mrs. Angela’s elder brother Mr. Gerald (sur. name also withheld) also spoke to The Leader and confirmed the story with a heavy heart.

“In fact, my mother is now in hospital. We have not seen anything like this in our family or village before. But my father saw it before he died. He told Angela that going to that church will backfire on her and it has,” he said, as he and Mr. Sylvester with other family members headed off to the police station, where the Pastor was detained.

Mrs Angela and her daughter were also at the police station but to support the pastor.

Both mother and daughter were unashamedly calling for the pastor’s release. Additionally, the young girl yelled insults and false accusations on family members. Both mother and daughter refused to go home with Mr. Sylvester but swore instead to continue with the pastor.

It is unlikely that the case would go to court although it involves sexual relationship with a minor.

The Leader gathered that the Fake Pastor said he wanted to marry the girl and also accepted police order to refund Mr. Sylvester his money.

Pastor MacDonald seems to have other names and hails from Enugu State. He has lived in different communities in and around Owerri and left for unknown reasons.

A woman recalled getting a text message from him, inviting her to his church to pay N5000 and “claim her husband”. That was after Pastor Wisdom’s requests to come to the woman’s family home to perform a “deliverance” to ease them of their troubles failed.

He challenged the members to bring their reputation to bear on the University, bearing in mind the task for good quality scholarship in Imo State University as well as service to humanity.

The Governor urged the members to deploy their individual accomplishments, excellence, expertise, passion for service as effectively as necessary to actualize the dream of his administration of having a highly reputable University comparable to the best Universities in the World.

He also requested the Council to “restore in words and deeds the motto of Imo State University, which is Excellence in Service”.

“Imo State University currently is a classical example of a failed University,” Governor Uzodimma said but strongly believed that “with a star studded Governing Council such as the one inaugurated there is no doubt that Imo is on the track to realize the dreams of her founding fathers.”

He further enjoined the Council members to quickly hit the ground running and come up with policies and programmes that will reassure Imo people that the University that made them proud 20 years back is on track as he assured them of Government partnership in this regard.

In an acceptance speech, on behalf of the Council, the Chairman, Most Rev. Ugorji who is the Catholic Bishop of Umuahia thanked the Governor for the absolute confidence reposed in them by giving them the assignment and acknowledged that though the task is daunting he has a strong belief that with the calibre of members of the Council and support of the management, staff and students the University will be returned to a centre of excellence which was the dream of the founding fathers.

He said that Imo State University deserves the best and that he and his members as inaugurated will work acidulously to ensure that the target of the governor in making Imo State University one of the best universities in Africa is realised.

He congratulated fellow members and promised that God’s willing, they will not fail the government and people of Imo State.

Present at the inauguration were the Deputy Governor, Prof. Placid Njoku, the Speaker Imo State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Chiji Collins, the Secretary to the State Government, Chief Cosmas Iwu, and other members of the expanded State Executive Council.
