The Police in Edo state have arrested a couple and four of their friends for allegedly assaulting a pastor, filming him naked and threatening to release the video to his contacts if he refused to pay the sum of 10 million Naira to them.
According to the spokesman of the Police Command, SP Kotongs Bello, the clergyman was invited by a former female member of his church to pray for her new home. On arrival to the house, the pastor was attacked, beaten, stripped naked and filmed by the woman and her husband and four of their friends who threatened to release the video if he refused to give them 10 million Naira. They also withdrew the sum of 800,000 Naira from the pastor's account.
"It was this Ella Ayoola that hired the pastor in the guise of coming to her house to help her pray for her new house. On arrival, the husband and four other friends came out from the bush and started beating the said Adejumola who at the end of the day after beating him, they stripped him naked, videoed him, threatening him, after withdrawing a total of 800,000 from his two accounts.
According to the couple, the clergyman had made advances at the wife which is why they decide to teach him a lesson.
The husband said;
"I have already warned the pastor twice. When they told me that the man is still after her again the third time, I said I need to teach the man a lesson for him to know that what he is doing as a pastor is not good".
Also speaking, the pastor said;
"Before I came out from my car, about seven or eight people from the bush came out. They beat me, they showed me, they naked me, the videoed me, they collected my phone. They took me to Benin. They withdrew about 800,000 thousand Naira. After spending about 3 or 4 hours, they now said this video is with us, after a month I will pay 10 million Naira. Failure for me not to pay, the contacts on my list have been copied out on a particular paper. They will be sending it to them one after the other".
