How court remands Bishop Feyi Daniels in prison over rape allegation

Nigerian Bishop Oluwafeyiropo (Feyi) Daniels on Monday appeared at the Lagos Special Offences Court in Ikeja on a two-count charge of rape.

Daniels pleaded not guilty and was granted bail on conditions, including a N20 million bond and two sureties with property in the state.

Justice Ramon A. Oshodi ordered an accelerated hearing and remanded him at the Kirikiri Correctional Centre until he fulfils bail conditions.

The judge also directed the church leader to submit his international passport to the court and adjourned to 9th of May, 2023 for trial.

In March, Lagos Directorate of Public Prosecution, DPP, ordered Daniels’ arraignment over the alleged rape of an assistant pastor and another lady.

The case was investigated at the Force Criminal Investigation Department, FCID, in Ikoyi, where two victims made statements.

The Lagos Domestic and Sexual Violence Response Agency, DSVA, is involved in the case whose legal advice was issued in December 2022.

Signed by DPP Director, Babajide Martins, the advice said after consideration of the facts, “there exists prima facie offence of rape under Section 260 of the Criminal Law, Ch C17, Vol.3, Laws of Lagos State, 2015” against Daniels.

“Facts from the duplicate case file reveal that the suspect…had a church branch in Akungba Akoko (Ondo) where he had young people as pastors and assistant pastors.

“It is also revealed that Oluwafeyiropo Daniels invites the branch pastors and assistants to his house from time to time for one reason or the other,” the DPP report said.

The report added that Daniels allegedly took advantage of one of the assistant pastors whenever she visited his residence in the Ikota area of Lagos.

The founder of iReign Christian Ministry in Ikota became popular after his controversial prediction about the presidential election.

Daniels predicted the arrest of President-elect Bola Tinubu on the day of inauguration, adding that Peter Obi will eventually become President.
