I Am Deeply Sorry – Pastor Timi Adigun Apologises For Raping And Assaulting Teenagers

Pastor Timi Adigun of MINES Teens Ministry has apologised for raping and sexually assaulting the teenagers whom he is said to be mentoring on sexual purity.
Recall that a tweep OriFunke has called out Timi Adigun on Twitter on Friday, alongside a Facebook user, both noting that the act had been going on for years. As more evidences surfaced in voice notes and witnesses, the members of his ministry confirmed the dirty act, saying he has taken over the ministry’s social media pages.I Am Deeply Sorry - Pastor Timi Adigun Apologises For Raping And Assaulting TeenagersTaking to his Instagram page, however, the clergy admitted the allegations, clarifying, however, that there has never been any sexual penetration. He added that he had stepped down from the Ministry since October but has been holding teachings with people who want him to teach the word. “MY PUBLIC APOLOGY  My name is Timi Adigun. I have been called out on social media platforms and this is my humble response. I want to say I AM DEEPLY SORRY to everyone my actions and inactions have hurt at this time. The truth is, I was involved in inappropriate behaviour with females over a couple of years. I went against the sexual purity message I preach and believe in and I AM SO SO SORRY.”
“I failed those of you who look up to me. Please find a place in your hearts to forgive me. I want to humbly state that there was no sexual intercourse with any, none was a minor, and my wife did not know about these actions while they happened. I have apologised to God, my wife, my in-laws, my family and some ministry members. I am here APOLOGIZING PUBLICLY. I have apologised several times to ALL the ladies involved and also apologised to some’s family members. The final apology came in September when I sent voice note apologies to ALL OF THEM for taking advantage of their trust in me and they all, at different times, accepted my apology.I Am Deeply Sorry - Pastor Timi Adigun Apologises For Raping And Assaulting Teenagers
This call out was more from ministry leaders who had had clashes with me at different times and used the occasion of this knowledge to get back at me, hence the use of the ministry’s Twitter Handle. Once again, I AM SO SORRY FOR MY WRONGS. I am 100% open and faithful to my wife now and I know deep within that I have repented. Please give me an opportunity to prove so. And yes, I still believe in sexual purity and I hope to be a worthy example, again, soon enough. I had stepped down in October from ministry and church.”

“I only maintained a fellowship for the people that still wanted me to teach them the WORD. So, it is a fellowship running in the interim, not a church as at now. Then I also came back on social media prematurely and I apologise. I would be off until January when I am restored to the pulpit. To MINE Family members across the world, I AM SORRY. To the Christian Community, globally, I AM SORRY. To people of other faiths, I AM SORRY. To Nigerians, I AM SORRY. Please forgive me! Please find it in your hearts to do”, the statement reads.Photos Credit: Getty
