The pastor of a new generation church in Igbo – Etche , in the Etche Local Government Area of Rivers State, has been stripped naked by members of a vigilance group for allegedly defiling his three daughters .
The cleric , who confessed to the crime in a viral video seen on social media, was stripped by the group known as the Onelga Security , Peace and Advisory Council .
He was also beaten in the presence of his wife and son for the act .
Reports gathered that the pastor’ s son reported the incest to the security guards after he learnt that his mother had been covering up the crime .
The local guards were said to have mobilised to the pastor’ s residence, took him outside and stripped him naked .
In the video seen by our correspondent , a member of the group asked why the suspect defiled his daughters .
Responding, he said , “ It is because of a witchcraft force .
My mother told me not to marry this woman (pointing to the wife ) , but I continued to marry her .
So, my mother did that to punish me and bring shame on me. ”

Asked the name of his church and how many members he had, the pastor said , “ My church is in Chuwuta in Ibgbo – Etche .
I have many members but I have not had sex with any of the women in my church . ”
Angered by his explanation , a man suspected to be the leader of the vigilantes , slapped the cleric , while two other members flogged him with canes .
A member of the group turned to the suspect’ s wife , who said she was 56 years old , demanding what she did after discovering the crime .
“ I cannot do anything because I love my husband and I cover him .
But I told him not to do it again.
I cover him because of love , ” she replied.
When asked to speak , the pastor’ s son , who reported the matter to the vigilantes , said his father laid curse on him for exposing the secret .
The leader of the vigilantes compelled the suspect to reverse the curse.
