Following Pastor Timi Adigun’s public apology for alleged sexual assault on young female members of his ministry; My youth ministry, the head of the youth ministry, issued a statement that they do not believe the pastor regrets his ungodly and inappropriate actions.
In a detailed statement, Mine told Teenage Ministry how they discovered that the pastor allegedly sexually assaulted girls in his care.
They said they received a text message on Tuesday October 13th accusing them of being silent while the pastor molested girls. They decided to investigate and many other victims came out.
They said their investigation led them to understand that “Timi Adigun has actually molested some of the ladies at the ministry for over 5 years”. They added that he “was involved in corrupt morals with them, including teenagers.” He reportedly insisted that a teen meet him at a Lagos hotel from her school outside Lagos and told her not to let her family know.
Although Timi Adigun said in his apology that his wife Titi Adigun was unaware of his antics, my ministry says that this is not true. “His wife, Titi Adigun, knew about it all along,” the ministry wrote, adding, “she knew it the first time and at other times thereafter.” “Although she knew it, she deliberately abandoned women in the Ministry to her husband and put some of them in her home,” the statement added. The ministry further claims that “Timi Adigun made some of the victims kneel in front of his wife to apologize for his own sexual immorality.”
The ministry said when church leaders presented the facts of their findings to Pastor Timi Adigun, “he took up self-justification and said things like,” It’s not that I don’t care about these girls, “” God will defend me ” . “My God will speak for me”.
The ministry said, “After this episode, he blocked current and past leaders from being accessible to him.” They added that he did not offer an apology to the members but “closed the church and closed the utilities,” whereupon he reached out to “carefully selected people to inform them of a new church run.” They also rejected the pastor’s promise that he would resign.
“Timi Adigun never stepped down,” they wrote, adding, “He once said it without a number, that no one called him into service and no one could get him to resign.” Whether Timi Adigun is really remorseful, the ministry said that his actions so far show no remorse.
“Would he be sorry if he wasn’t called?” they asked in the statement. “From our internal standpoint, Timi Adigun’s previous actions have not reflected any remorse. “He had confidently declared that nothing could be done to him and played confidently with the victims’ silence.
“Instead, we still don’t recommend parents or church organs to entrust their church to him. “Any young person, teenager or child who has anything to do with Timi or Titi Adigun would do so at their own risk.” The declaration was signed by Ministry Leaders and published online.
