Pastors heading two new generation churches in Adamawa state have been arrested for alleged extra-marital affairs.

The pastors Ebenezer Otinjele and Juliana Daniel are officials of the Yola Electricity Distribution Company (YEDC).

Otinjele is a pastor with the Liberty International Gospel Centre, Yola in Adamawa, while Mrs Daniel is also a female pastor at the Encouragement Fellowship International.

The two suspects are currently being held in police custody at the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) Yola.

Mrs Daniel is the wife of Eli Daniel, who is an official of the Federal Ministry of Power, Abuja.

It was alleged that Mrs Daniel worked directly under Otinjele when he was the business manager of the Electricity Distribution Company Yola, where they started a sexual relationship.

Daniel told our reporter that they got married on April 6, 2002 at the Lutheran Church of Christ in Nigeria (LCCN) headquarters in Numan and had five children “including the two she had with Ebenezer whom she made him to believe they are his children”.

“After our marriage, I secured a job for her in early 2016 where she was posted to Yola Business unit and later deployed to work in the office of the then business manager, Pastor Ebenezer. This is where they started their extra marital relationship.

“After her deployment to the office of Ebenezer, they stated having sexual intercourse to the extent of committing such act in our matrimonial home at Mbamba.
