A Pastor of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Emmanuel Orekoya, was arraigned at the Ikeja Sexual Offences and Domestic Violence Court on Tuesday, for allegedly raping and impregnating his 17-year-old daughter.

Naija News learnt that the state’s prosecution counsel, Abimbola Abolade, told the court that the defendant committed the offences in 2017 at Jacob Adeleye Street, Odoeran, Itire area of Lagos State.

The defendant is facing two counts of unlawful sexual intercourse and sexual assault preferred against him by the Lagos State Government.
