The trial of Pastor Emmanuel Orekoya was stalled on Wednesday, April 17, 2024, at the Lagos State segxwal Offences and Domestic Violence Court over the alleged defilement of his daughter due to the absence of prosecution witnesses.

Orekoya was first arraigned on February 27, before Justice Abiola Soladoye on a two-count charge of defilement and s3xual assault by p3netration in 2017 in the Itire area of Surulere, Lagos.

NAN reports that the prosecution also told the court that the pastor allegedly defiled his daughter by inserting his fingers into her v*gina and also by inserting his p3nis into her mouth contrary to the Criminal Laws of Lagos State (2015).

The pastor pleaded not guilty to the charges.

At the resumption of hearing on Wednesday, the prosecuting State Counsel, Mr Olusola Soneye, told the court that his three witnesses could not make it to court.

He explained that he reached out to the witnesses on Tuesday and that they promised to be pre-sent in court.

Soneye then asked for an adjournment to which the defence counsel did not object.

Justice Soladoye adjourned to June 5.
