A 48-year-old pastor, Nduka Anyanwu, on Wednesday, pleaded guilty to defiling and impregnating two teenage sisters.

Anyanwu made the plea before a Yaba Chief Magistrates’ Court in Lagos State.

He is facing a two-count charge of defilement.

Earlier, the Police Prosecutor, ASP Roman Unuigbe, told the court that the defendant committed the offences sometime in June, at Oshodi area of Lagos.

NAN reports that the defendant, who is a Pastor, had slept with the two sisters, aged 17 and 13, respectively, (names withheld), on several occasions and impregnated them.

According to him, the defendant had allegedly defiled the sisters at the church complex, under the pretext of holding prayer sessions with them.

Unuigbe added that the offences contravene Section 137 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.

Following his guilty plea to both charges, the Chief Magistrate Mrs A. Adedayo, remanded the defendant in a custodial center.

Adedayo adjourned the case to Sept. 15, for facts and sentencing.
