“He started to rape me last year. He used to come to sleep in our house. He said there was heat in his apartment. So, while my twin sister and I would sleep on the floor, he used to sleep on the bed with my father. While my dad slept, he would come to the floor and sleep with me. He has done it many times. He put his male reproductive organ in my private parts. He threatened that if I told my father, he would not take him to work again. He and my father eat and work together, and they both sleep on thsame bed.

These are the words of a 12-year-old twin sister, Chioma Okoro, who, along with her partner, was allegedly defiled by

An Assistant Pastor of the Anointed Chosen Vessel Ministry, Okota, Lagos, Mike Oliseh, 54.

The twins’ father is a friend and disciple of Oliseh.

According the Lagos State Police Command, Oliseh who is married with four children, lives in the same compound with the parents of his victims in Ago palace way in Okota, Lagos.

The account adds that Oliseh  and Okoro got close after he employed (Okoro’s) services. Oliseh who is a borehole driller, contracted him to be his transporter since he owned a bus. Oliseh then got so close to the Okoro’s and invited over to his church.

Okoro’s wife however travelled on a business trip in 2017 and then the clergymen started sleeping in their home.

In her account Chioma  said Oliseh threatened to withdraw the support he was giving to their family if she refuses to sleep with him.

The mother of the victims, Chidera, also said, “On that Thursday, my daughter did not go to school; she was alone in the compound. Mike (Oliseh) came and chased her. The girl ran into the backyard to hide. He went there and started pulling her pants; the girl shouted. An elderly woman, who came for omugo (the Igbo practice of female parents tendering their daughters’ newborn babies) in our compound and was in the room, saw him.

“When she opened the door, Mike quickly brought out a phone and pretended to be speaking to my husband on the telephone. He said he wanted to give my daughter something, but she was not ready to collect it. He then put his phone in his pocket and left. The woman, who observed that he did not dial any number on the phone before putting it to his ear, called my husband to ask the children what his friend had been doing to them. That was how the secret was blown open. He slept with my first daughter regularly, but had only succeeded in inserting his fingers into the private parts of my second daughter.”

The state police PRO, Chike Oti, confirmed the incident and noted that Oliseh wuld soon be in court.
