Anyanwu pleaded guilty to defiling before a Yaba Chief Magistrates’ Court in Lagos State, on Wednesday.
The clergy man was slammed with a two-count charge of defilement.

Earlier, the Police Prosecutor, ASP Roman Unuigbe, told the court that the defendant committed the offences sometime in June, at Oshodi area of Lagos.
