A Nigerian priest who went on the run after sexually assaulting a woman in the UK has been jailed for eight months. 58 year old Father Hilary Ogom Nwadei, pleaded guilty to fondling the woman’s Bosom s and exposing himself while staying at St Mary’s Priory in Leyland. Nwadei, from the Diocese of Issele-Uku, Delta State, Nigeria, began staying at the Priory in September 2013 while he studied a doctorate in law at the University of Central Lancashire, and also preached to the congregation. During that time, according to reports, he complained of loneliness and befriended his victim who he regularly confided in and often hugged during these exchanges. However on December 12, 2013, he asked the woman to help him pack for a return trip to Nigeria.
She agreed and went to his bedroom. David Traynor, prosecuting, said:
Quote
The defendant leaned against the door of the room, causing it to shut. He was between her and her way out of the room. He asked her for a kiss and she presented him with her cheek, but the defendant said ‘No, a proper kiss’, then kissed her on the lips.
The victim said she wanted to leave and tried to leave, then the defendant asked if she had any sexual feelings towards him. When she said no the defendant reached up the back of her jumper and undid her bra.
Then he moved his hands round the front, underneath her jumper and placed his hands under her bra, onto her naked Bosom s. He fondled her Bosom s for a matter of seconds. The woman made her excuses to leave, but he was still between her and the door, so she couldn't leave at that point
.”
The court heard he then undid his trousers, exposed himself and made a lewd comment. The woman said she had to leave and Nwadei moved out of the way to let her pass.
Mr Traynor also told the court Nwadei had told the woman “it was meant to be just you and me” and told her not to say anything.
The assault followed two incidents in previous days, where Nwadei had told the woman he loved her, “twanged” her bra and slipped £100 in her pocket for new underwear. The woman told a friend and the matter was raised with the church, who launched an investigation, then told the police.
Nwadei returned to Nigeria before moving to London, returning briefly to Leyland to apologize for his actions. But knowing that he was wanted for questioning, he left the UK again, following the death of his father and did not return until he was arrested at Heathrow Airport while on a transit flight to the USA in December 2014 – 12 months after the offence.
Claire Jones, defending, said:
“He yearns to return to his country and has learned a salutary lesson. He can no longer carry on in this vein. He has been asked to leave the church and also it has shaken his faith going through this experience.
She insisted there was no evidence to suggest he tried to stop the victim from leaving the bedroom during the time of the assault.
Judge Michael Byrne read out excerpts from the victim’s impact statement, where she told of feeling intimidated and scared to bump into Nwadei. Sentencing, he said:
I make it unequivocally plain that all incidents of sexual assault always regarded as serious.
He said although the crime was at the lower end of the scale, it has two aggravating features – it was a breach of trust for a minister of religion, and that the invitation to his bedroom was for the purpose of a sexual encounter.
Reflecting his guilty plea, Judge Byrne jailed him for eight months with a £100 statutory charge. Nwadei will be put on the sex offenders’ register for 10 years, and will be deported from the UK immediately after his jail term expires. DS Carl Matthews
This was a despicable crime committed by Nwadei who then tried to flee from facing the consequences of his actions. I hope that today’s sentence brings some closure to his victim who has been supported by specially trained officers throughout the process.”

Both of them are guilty. Why would a woman enter a priest room to pack for him? Its totally not acceptable in Catholic church. They have man servants and house helps which he could have used. The lady consistently going to the priest also means there was an attraction. Methink its a relationship gone soar, maybe he promised her some benefits and failed. Diaris God

how can you justify the molestation of another person...completely wrong on this..just because a woman helps a priest to pack regardless of the circumstance does not give him a right to molest her..by the way ,the man servant you are talking about are being molested by the priest also...so wake up

A woman who obviously going by the write up is a church member has no business in the priest bedroom. For Christ sake, priest or no priest, this people are human and has got feelings too. We should always help them come out of that situation, not tempt them by going into their bedroom, to do what? Besides, what is wrong with the priest hands that he cannot pack his stuff. See I was born into a catholic family and can authoritatively tell you that church members caused most abuse in catholic church. They are crazy about Rev fathers - belief it or not. Thank God am REDEEMED now

Yes! Agreed! Man servants are also being molested but its a better case to judge than that of a woman. Why on earth will a woman go into a priest bed room to help pack his stuff? Why? Why must it be that particular woman that was invited to pack his stuff in his supposedly sacred room? It is even wrong for a sister to enter a priest room talkless of an ordinary woman. Both of them are wrong- take it or leave it

These so called men of God are manipulative..who knows how she got there..the fact is that there is no justification for her ordeal..That is a woman..we all have women in our families..imagine if that was your sister, aunt or family member..The point is we as humans have to be able to control ourselves regardless of what the temptation is..there is always going to be temptation out there..
