Teenage daughter of a pastor with the Assemblies of God Church, Rev. Uche Okereke of Iyana Ipaja branch, Lagos State, Chioma, has abandoned her home and followed her Muslim lover, Sadiq Moruf.
There has been a serious fight playing out between Pastor Okereke and his daughter over Moruf.
According to P.M.Express, the fight started at Igando police division and has moved to a Lagos Magistrate’s court.
The climax was when Chioma told her father to his face in the open court that she was bound by the relationship and she was already pregnant for Moruf.
According to the report, 19-year-old Moruf, and 17-year-old Chioma have been dating for the past five years.
Chioma has reportedly abandoned her education at secondary school level and started living with Moruf who is a fashion designer and of Muslim Faith, in their family house.
Chioma’s father said he has tried for those years to search and bring Chioma back to his house to continue her education to no and avail.
He told the court, “For the past five years, I have looking for Chioma and did not see her until last week when information got to me where Moruf was hiding her and have changed into Muslim faith.
“She was rescued and Moruf was arrested by the Police and detained at the station.”
It was gathered that at the Police Station, Moruf was accused of abducting Chioma, which she debunked and told the police that Moruf did not abduct her and that they were lovers for years and had agreed to marry.
However, the police charged and arraigned Moruf before Magistrate’s court sitting in Ejigbo with the alleged offence, where Chioma made the remark in the court room.
The presiding Magistrate, Akeem Fashola declined to take Moruf’s plea and referred them to family court.
Moruf was taken back to the Igando station where he will be taken to the family court as directed by the court.
