The prosecutor alleged that Waleola, whose church is located in Oke-Ara in Akure metropolis, has “the penchant of seducing male students and sucking their manhood until they discharged semen in his mouth.”

According to his confessional statement tendered before the court, the prophet said he had defiled more than four male students before he was apprehended by men of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC.

Waleola said that he normally goes to public schools during break time, approach the male students and seduce them into putting their manhood into his mouth.

He said that he allowed his victim to go once he discharges into his mouth, adding that he derives pleasure in the act.

Blaming the act on devil, he told his interrogators that he does not know what comes over him while he sucks the male victims, adding that he would come to his senses after completing the act.

When the one-count charge preferred against him by the NSCDC Prosecutor, David Ebriku, was read out to him, he pleaded guilty and asked the court to forgive him, saying he would desist from the act henceforth.

However, his plea fell on deaf ears, as Magistrate V. W. Bobmanuel, sentenced him to three years imprisonment without an option of fine.
