Chioma, a teenage daughter of Rev. Uche Okereke, of the Assemblies of God Church, Iyana Ipaja, Lagos State, abandoned her home five years ago and eloped with her Muslim lover, Sadiq Moruf.
According to PMExpress, Chioma is reportedly pregnant for Moruf, her lover of five years.
Chioma reportedly abandoned her education at secondary school level and started living with Moruf, a fashion designer.
Narrating his ordeal, Rev. Okereke said he had searched for his daughter Chioma for many years.
He said, “For the past five years, I have been looking for Chioma and did not see her until last week when information got to me of where Moruf was hiding her and she has converted into a Muslim. She was rescued and Moruf was arrested by the Police and detained at the station.”
According to the Police, Moruf was accused of abducting Chioma, but that report, Chioma debunked, saying they had been dating for many years and already had plans to wed.
However, Moruf was charged and arraigned before a Magistrate’s court sitting in Ejigbo with the alleged offence. The presiding Magistrate, Akeem Fashola, declined to take Moruf’s plea and referred the matter to a family court.
