An alleged philanderous pastor who felt uncomfortable with his wife’s constant complaint of amorous relationships with female members of his church and therefore arranged the pummelling of the querulous woman now faces the possibility of manslaughter charge before a court of law.

The pastor’s eight-month-old baby, cuddled by the said wife, Dasola Akinbola, during the alleged physical assault on her by the two women the pastor engaged for the beating, reportedly fell off her hand and sustained severe injuries leading to his death.

The baby boy, Obadiah Akinbola, police said, died in the hospital, a day after the incident.

A press release issued by the Ogun State Police Command Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, states that 50-year-old Pastor Isaac Akinbola and two women, Esther Olowolayemo (29) and Oluwakemi Oshinbajo (30) years, were arrested for assaulting the pastor’s wife, as a result of which an eight-months-old baby, Obadiah Akinbola, died in the process.

According to the PPRO, “The suspects were arrested on the 27th of March, 2022, following a report lodged at Awa-Ijebu Divisional Police Headquarters by the pastor’s wife, one Dasola Akinbola, that she had been having disagreements with her pastor husband over his illicit affairs with some female members of the church for some time now, and that the said husband came to her house at Ipinle area of Mamu-Ijebu with two women, whom she had been suspecting of having illicit affairs with to beat her up”.

While acting the pastor’s script of beating her, her eight-month-old baby, Obadiah Akinbola, fell; while not having any recourse for the fallen baby, “her husband still mounted pressure on the two women to beat her thoroughly”, the wife recounted.

Based on the report lodged by the assaulted woman, the DPO, CSP Adewalehinmi Joshua, ordered the arrest of the three suspects, while the woman and her baby were taken to Mamu-Ijebu Health Center for medical care.

“The woman and her baby were later referred to Blessed Hospital, Oru-Ijebu, where it was discovered that the baby sustained internal injuries after the fall.

“The child gave up the ghost on the 28th of March, 2022 while receiving treatment as a result of the internal injuries”, Oyeyemi stated, adding that the lifeless body of the deceased child had been deposited at the General Hospital, Ijebu-Igbo mortuary for autopsy”, the PPRO said.

The state Commissioner of Police, Lanre Bankole, has consequently ordered the immediate transfer of the suspects to the Homicide Section of the State Criminal Investigations and Intelligence Department for further investigation, with a view of arraigning them in court as soon as the investigation was concluded.
