She explained that she joined his church and worked her way to the position of assistant pastor. On June 5, 2020, the lady mentioned that the pastor suddenly called her and asked her and some other pastors to come to his house.
She obeyed and went to his home at Flat 4, at Ikota Villa Estate, Lekki, Lagos, on June 19, 2023, and explained that the next day every other pastor went back to their respective houses but Bishop Daniel had insisted she stay over for a 3-hour prayer session around the estate.

“He told me to go on a three-hour prayer work around the estate, but I came back home 30 minutes prior to the elapse of the prayer hours due to a heavy downpour. I was seated on the couch that same day, listening to pastor Chris message when the Bishop Daniel walked up to me from the dining section.
“He ordered me to go naked again, which I did for the fear of what had happened prior because the bishop accused me of not being submissive and loyal to him as my spiritual father. He said he wanted to know my loyalty and see if I have finally submitted to him. I told him I could do anything for him but sex. He tried kissing me and I stopped him, then he slapped me,” she said
She continued by recounting the first time the Bishop raped her, “I was listening to Pastor Chris’ message when bishop Daniel came to the three-seater sofa, I was sitting on. He told me to go naked for the third time, but due to the fear of what happened a day before, I went naked. The bishop locked the door, increased the volume of the television and he went naked too. He squeezed and pinned me to the chair and sexually abused me. He threatened that if I tell anybody, I will run mad,” she said.
According to daily trust, the young woman said that after Bishop Daniel raped her, he didn’t allow her to go to her house and instead sends his gateman on her behalf anytime she needs something.
She continued by stating that he later came unto her again for the second time, “I was coming out from the room to the kitchen, on June 23, when he came out of his room too, wrapping a towel and said he wanted to have sex with me.”
“Bishop Daniel said I should count it as a privilege that he violated me because many people would love to have sex with him, but I told him I have someone I am dating that he is not attracted to me. In the living room on that same morning of June 23, he took off my dress and raped me again. He told me I would die if I told anyone. I bled the second time because of the forceful entry.” She continued.
The young woman explained that because of his assault, she bled for days and was given N5,00 by the pastor to treat herself.
After she testified, the court decided that the case would be adjourned to May 24, 2023, for the continuation of the trial and cross-examination.
