The name Bishop Stephanus Lucky Enofe was only known to members of Spirit and Grace Ministry, in Idi-Oro, Mushin area of Lagos, until recently when he was arrested for allegedly defiling a 15-year-old girl and putting her in the family’s way.
He was alleged to have been sleeping with the Senior Secondary School 2 student, who is a member of his congregation since she was 12. Enofe, 46, and a father of four, was alleged to have impregnated the girl during the lockdown necessitated by the COVID-19 pandemic, but rushed to pay her dowry in Abia State, on August 26, 2020, when the lockdown was eased, in order to cover the act.
Report said that a supposed elaborate wedding between him and his teenage wife was billed to hold last Saturday, September 12, 2020, in Lagos, with invitation cards sent out, but it never did as he spent the day in police custody at the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, SCIID, Yaba.
However, the Bishop has described as false, news making the rounds that he impregnated the girl.
