The controversial pastor who was angered by the couple’s amorous activity which has led to a pregnancy took apparently the law into his hands and lashed the young man on his bare back before turning to the girl flogging her mercilessly with a belt in the full glare of his congregation.

Throughout the punishment, Obinim is heard questioning the jobless young man why he got the girl pregnant when he has no finances for her upkeep and the upbringing of the unborn child.

The girl who was unable to stand the flogging attempted to escape, but she was held by henchmen of the Bishop to enable the bishop mete out more beatings.

After subjecting the two to severe flogging for several minutes, Obinim ordered his junior pastors to remove their belts and subject the couple to more flogging.

Many have criticized Obinim for his actions, with Amnesty International calling for his arrest.

But the controversial pastor has released a statement saying he flogged the two because they fornicated and tried aborting the pregnancy.
