An Ikeja sexual offenses and domestic violence court has sentenced Feyi Daniels, founder of I Reign Christian Ministry, to life imprisonment for “raping a church member”.
Rahman Oshodi, the trial judge, on Friday, found the cleric guilty of rape and sexual assault of a female worshipper.
Daniels was arraigned by the Lagos state government over rape, attempted rape, and sexual assault of his church members.
The cleric faced trial on an amended four-count charge bordering on rape, sexual assault and attempted rape.
The pastor was accused of sexually assaulting three of his church members at his residence in Lekki and on his church premises in Ikeja.
In May 2023, the cleric was remanded in court for allegedly raping a 25-year-old woman at his Lekki residence.
The church member had told the court that the cleric had sex with her during a prayer session, while speaking in tongues.
