Posted by Lawrence A. on December 12, 2020
Pastor Timi Adigun of MINE Teenage Ministry has reacted to the allegations that he sexually assaulted a number of the teens in his care.
Some days ago, viral reports made the rounds on Twitter that Adigun, who is the leader of The Ark Church, was involved in inappropriate sexual acts with his female teenage members for years.
The teenage ministry, an offshoot of his church, encourages sexual purity and even has a yearly “virginity day”.
However, while teaching them about sexual purity, he was not living up to his teachings.
The married pastor was also accused of molesting those who lived with him for over 5 years.
They claimed that he started the “Father Me” series where he encouraged people to submit to fatherhood, only for him to use the opportunity to allegedly molest those girls who took him as a father.
The Ministry made these accusations on Twitter via its official Twitter handle then claimed that his wife, Timilehin Adigun was aware of his actions and was “complicit”.
Akan Imoh, a public relations expert, who lives close to the church in Lagos, claimed that he confirmed the allegations after investigating alongside two other journalists.
In the Facebook post that went viral, he also claimed Mr Adigun was nonchalant about their findings.
The accused pastor has now admitted to the allegations via an apology letter he shared on social media.
He said he is “deeply sorry” to everyone his “actions and inactions have hurt”.
He added: “The truth is, I was involved in inappropriate behaviour with females over a couple of years.”
