In the video which went viral on social media last year, the Founder and leader of International God’s Way Church, who refers to himself as Angel Obinim, was seen whipping a teenage girl and her boyfriend with a belt allegedly for fornicating and attempting abortion.
Wadup NG recalled that mother of the young boy said she will invoke curses on those calling for the pastor’s arrest while the mother of the girl said the beating wasn’t enough.
“He is our father, he has been taking care of me and my son since my husband died. He is the one paying my son’s school fees and has the right to discipline him when he goes wrong,”
She called on all who are condemning the pastor for ‘putting the children in their right place’ to rather commend him.
On her part, the girl’s mother, who is also a member of the church feels the belting was not enough.
“Papa should have beaten her more.
Justifying his action in one of his numerous interviews, the controversial man of God said he did it to instill discipline in the teenagers, adding said his father Jesus Christ revealed to him while he was prophesying that the two teens were planning to terminate the pregnancy.
The young parents and their baby are being cared for by Bishop Obinim.
