A pastor with Assemblies of God Church, Rev. Uche Okereke of Iyana Ipaja branch, Lagos State, who dragged his 19-year-old daughter’s muslim lover, Moruf, to court for impregnating his 17-year-old daughter Chioma and making her abandon her family, was reportedly told to his face by his daughter that she was bound by the relationship and was already pregnant for Moruf in court.
It was gathered that Chioma who abandoned her education at secondary school level, and started living with Moruf who is a fashion designer and of Muslim Faith in their family house, have been dating the latter for 5 years.
Chioma’s father said he has tried for those years to search and bring Chioma back to his house to continue her education to no and avail. He said;
“For the past five years, I have looking for Chioma and did not see her until last week when information got to me where Moruf was hiding her and have changed into Muslim faith.
“She was rescued and Moruf was arrested by the Police and detained at the station.”
PM News reported that at the Police Station, Moruf was accused of abducting Chioma, which she debunked and told the police that Moruf did not abduct her and that they were lovers for years and had agreed to marry.
However, the police charged and arraigned Moruf before Magistrate’s court sitting in Ejigbo with the alleged offence, where Chioma made the remark in the court room.
The presiding Magistrate, Akeem Fashola declined to take Moruf’s plea and referred them to family court.
