Shocking! Pastor Charged For Raping 14-year-old Daughter

The pastor of a New York City baptist church has been charged with the sexual abuse and rape of his own young daughter over six years. Son of the bishop at the Progressive Baptist Church of Brownsville in Brooklyn, Matthew Gibson was arrested on Thursday and accused of repeatedly sexually assaulting his now 14-year-old daughter.



The abuse is alleged to have been taking place on the church’s grounds since 2012, shortly after the victim’s mother died. ‘He should rot in hell,’ said the victim’s grandmother, Josephine Maples. ‘How can a father do this?’



Myia Maples, the victim’s sister-in-law, says the victim confided in her about the abuse last week, blurting it out in a moment of emotion. Maples and her husband have had full custody of the victim and her twin brother for seven years, with Gibson only having bi-weekly weekend visitation rights.



The victim’s twin brother says he was present at the church when the assaults were taking place, but had no idea what was going on. ‘He would make me play on the drums, and when it was happening, I wouldn’t be nowhere around,’ he said in an interview with NBC New York. ‘I feel like, in the moment, I let my sister down.’



Gibson, 44, was arrested on January 10 and charged with criminal sexual abuse and forcible touching of a female victim, aged between nine and 14.

Shocking! Boy killed by his mother’s partner in her presence (See his reason)

A mother sat by and did nothing as her 3-year-old son was crushed to death by her partner with an electric car seat. A court heard today that Adrian Hoare, 23, was sitting in the back seat of an Audi with her son Alfie Lamb when the boy was “squashed” in the footwell by her partner, 25-year-old Stephen Waterson.


Boy, 3, crushed to death by his mother


Alfie Lamb had been put into the rear footwell of the car by his mother. Waterson then allegedly pushed back the front passenger seat over Alfie twice because he was “angered” by noise the little boy was making. Waterson and Hoare claimed he had collapsed while they were in a taxi, but they both now face manslaughter charges, accused of killing Alfie on February 1 last year.


Waterson called 999 after Alfie’s death but fled before paramedics arrived and gave a false name when later questioned, jurors heard. Hoare, who stayed behind with her dead son, claimed Alfie fell asleep and then was “unresponsive”, the court heard. Duncan Atkinson QC, prosecuting, said the toddler was fit and well when he entered Waterson’s Audi but died from “crush asphyxia” sustained during the journey through Croydon in England.


Boy, 3, crushed to death by his mother


Prosecutor Duncan Atkinson said: It was caused by the front passenger seat of the vehicle, Waterson’s seat, being moved back further into the rear passenger side footwell at a time when, as was known, Alfie was in that footwell.

He added: Alfie was squashed by the car seat and suffocated because there was no room for him to breathe. This movement of the seat was a deliberate action by Waterson who was angered by the noise and fuss that the three-and-a-half-year-old was making during that fateful journey.

The court heard that they were in a car being driven by Marcus Richardson Croydon, south London, last February. Waterson was in the passenger seat while Hoare and friend Emilie Williams were in the back with Alfie.

Mr Atkinson said: During that car journey something happened to Alfie to compress his chest and abdomen so that he went from and active toddler, to a very seriously ill and brain damaged one. Three days later paramedics were called to their home and the boy’s mother told them they had got into a taxi and put him in a child seat where he fell asleep.

She said: We tried to wake him and found him unresponsive. The taxi driver kicked us out and f**cked off.

Narrating what transpired, Mr Atkinson said Waterson first pushed his seat back on to Alfie to try to silence him, but other passengers in the car urged him to move forward and set the boy free when it was obvious that he had hurt the boy and he was struggling to breathe.



Atkinson continued: However, when Alfie made noise again Waterson deliberately moved his seat back again, and he kept it in that reversed position, squashing Alfie as he again showed signs of breathing problems until he went ominously quiet.

Mr Atkinson said Hoare had put her son Alfie in the footwell of the backseat and failed to stop Waterson from hurting her son. He said: Given the lack of space even for a child of Alfie’s size and his obvious signs of breathing difficulties, she did nothing to help him.

He added: Alfie’s mother had a duty to protect him from avoidable harm and yet she had failed to do this by inappropriately placing a young child in the rear footwell of a moving car. She failed in any meaningful or sufficient way to address the consequences of Waterson’s actions.



Waterson, Hoare and another passenger in the car, 19-year-old Emilie Williams, have admitted lying to the police in the wake of the death. Waterson is also accused of assaulting the driver of the car, Marcus Richardson, to intimidate him when he was co-operating with the police investigation. Hoare is also accused of assaulting Ms Williams to intimidate her during an argument relating to the incident. Ms Emilie Williams is due to be another prosecution witness.



Hoare and Waterson, from Croydon, deny manslaughter but admit conspiracy to pervert the course of justice.

The trial continues.

EFCC arrests Bishop for defrauding people, pretending to help them fight poverty

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, (EFCC), Benin Zonal Office has arrested a Bishop and suspected fraudster, Giniko Obi, for allegedly defrauding thousands of people of various sums of money running into millions of naira, in the guise of helping them “fight poverty”.



A statement released by the acting spokesperson of the antigraft agency, Tony Orilade, says Obi who is the founder of Beloved Gideon Foundation, based in Agbor, Delta State, with outreaches in Bayelsa, Onitsha, Lagos, Port Harcourt, Abuja and Benin City, denied any involvement in fraud claiming that he was only “doing the will of God by trying to help the people fight poverty”.

According to Obi, it was his desire and God’s will to see people prosper that led him into operating what appears to be a Ponzi Scheme. Obi who claim to be a consecrated Bishop, possessing a diploma in theology explains thus:

“We write books such as ‘24 Nuggets for Successful Living’, ‘36 Nuggets for Successful Living’, ‘48 Nuggets for Successful Living’. We organise seminars and conferences on how to be successful. We tell the people to subscribe to these publications. If you subscribe with N10, 800, we give you N15, 000. If you subscribe with N18, 000, we give you N23, 000. I had about 30,000 subscribers and I was paying them”.

According to him, when he left Agbor for Lagos, his desire was to expand his subscription base but his subscribers were impatient. “If they allowed me to hold the conference in Lagos, I would have paid them,” he claimed. However, some of his victims who have continued to throng the EFCC office, since his arrest, described his as a “fraud”.

One of them, Janet Amaka Okafor, said the Bishop sold a dummy to them by claiming that he was from the famous Gideons International, based in the United States.

According to her, “He organised seminars in Agbor market that he was from Gideons International and that their mission was to help eradicate poverty in Nigeria. “He told us that unlike in the past when Gideons International distributed Bibles and Christian literature, their mission now was to eradicate poverty”.

On how she became a victim of the scheme, Okafor, 35, who claims she has never participated in any ponzi scheme in the past said she fell for his tricks because the “Bishop” swore with the bible.
