Nigerian Priest jailed for 8 months in the UK for sexual assault

58 year old Nigerian priest, Father Hilary Ogom Nwadei, pictured above has been sentenced to 8 months in jailed by a UK court for sexually assaulting a woman he met while staying at St Mary’s Priory in Leyland on December 12, 2013.

According to Lancashire Evening Post, Father Nwadei, a priest from the Diocese of Issele-Uku in Delta State, Nigeria, had moved to the UK to pursue his doctorate in Law degree at the University of Lancashire when the incident happened.

He was said to have complained of loneliness and became friends with his victim. On the day of the incident, he'd invited the lady to come to his room to help him pack for a trip to Nigeria when he assaulted her by fondling her boobs.
 
The prosecuting counsel, David Traynor,  while briefing the court said
“The defendant (fr Nwadei) leaned against the door of the room, causing it to shut. He was between her and her way out of the room. He asked her for a kiss and she presented him with her cheek, but the defendant said ‘No, a proper kiss’, then kissed her on the lips. The victim said she wanted to leave and tried to leave, then the defendant asked if she had any sexual feelings towards him. When she said no the defendant reached up the back of her jumper and undid her bra. Then he moved his hands round the front, underneath her jumper and placed his hands under her bra, onto her naked breasts. He fondled her breasts for a matter of seconds. The woman made her excuses to leave, but he was still between her and the door, so she couldn’t leave at that point.”he said.
Fr Nwadei then unzipped his trousers, bought out his penis and at that point, the woman asked to leave which he obliged but pleaded with her to keep what transpired between them a secret.

It was revealed during court session that this was not the first time he had sexually assaulted her. On previous days, he had told the woman he loved her, “twanged” her bra and slipped £100 in her pocket for new underwear, an act the woman reported to the church who immediately launched an investigation with the help of police.

Fr Nwadei returned to Nigeria and then visited Leyland briefly again to apologize to the woman for his actions. But knowing that he was wanted for questioning, he left the UK again, following the death of his father and did not return until he was arrested at Heathrow Airport while on a transit flight to the USA in December 2014 – 12 months after the offence.

The presiding judge, Judge Michael Byrne while delivering his judgement said statements from the victim showed that she was intimidated and scared of Nwadei. He said it was a breach of trust for a minister of religion to invite his victim to his bedroom with the purpose of having sexual encounter with her.

The Judge jailed him for eight months with a £100 statutory charge. Nwadei will be put on the sex offenders’ register for 10 years, and will be deported from the UK immediately after his jail term expires.

Dis man is no longer a priest now,he used to b a Priest in d church I attended way back in d 90's he wus a serving Priest in St.Micheals Catholic Church Obalende.He wus sanctioned and left Priesthood due to dis same heinous act of his.I met him enroute a flight to d UK years back and when I called him Father Hillary, he told he no longer wus a Rev as had retired, I wus shocked to my marrows to hear dis a Rev retiring,Hmmm he walks around with a walking stick due to bad leg he sustained in an accident on his way to Delta state.Its a shame what u did with d girls in St.Micheals catholic church back then has finally caught up with u.D catholic church is full of secret illicit acts like dis, the Rev's should b allowed to marry as actions like dis will always bring d church to disrepute.It is sad when u hear of things like dis a Rev.involved in such act.D scandals rocking d catholic church is too much, d Rev's should b allowed to marry.POP pls dis men r human and d Sisters to.

Hi Linda, I have been harassed by this same man, when he came to Nigeria. My husband asked him to give me some stuff, and he wanted to go further than just that... can you imagine? Really appalling human being. I reported this to my husband and of course and he denied it. good for him. got what he deserved.

Its crazy how peopke are so quick to condemn people are you guys so quick to condemn, because he sinned or because u've seen d opportunity to lambast the Catholic Church. . I think most of you nees more forgiveness than the priest.. here in naija we are so quick to condem simply because we are from different churches.. no matter the level of atrocities commited by Saul. DAVID had the wisdom of God not to judge or kill him when he had the opportunity simply because he was annointed. . Nobody intends to sin when joining the priesthood its called temptatiin.. it has nothing to do with marriage or not.. because the last time I checked pastors don't intend to cheat on their wives when exchanging vows. But we know of cases where pastors are caught in sex scandals, and pastors have even divorced wives two times in a row. Imams do not take pledge to kill people. They pledge to serve allah so if one kills its temptation he couldn't stop. the men of God need our prayers and not this public hypocrisy we all bring out here as if na we Holly pass.. am sure some people commenting here fit don rape sef.. abeg judgement day is gonna be based on your strive to holiness and jot on how much you opeb ur mouth to misyarn simply because u've seen a Catholic priest who faulted efforts. A single Priest who assaults and a married pastor who commits adultery all na the same .. God help us all

OMG!!! He took it outside!!!

Eh ya i am drawn to comment to show others that evil will always find you out if you dont repent. In fact i tot he was dead as all his priest gang members are dead God truely loves him and gave him a long rope the accident he had was a final warning but Satan loved his sin not him and now that he is oid and wearied bcause of too much attention to things of the flesh and of no use to Satan he led him to a country where he can be disgraced. he assumed he was bobo nkity and untoucheable here in nigeria , two of his cohorts took two girls from the university for a rendevou weekend had a fatal accident they all died the others died of different kinds of cancers i knew this father way bank in a catholic secondary school in Delta state. from his age now he was about 26yrs of age then. We were in a society called youth for Christ and whenever we went for our retreats he and other priest gang members made it a point of duty to sleep around with our seniors who were just 15 and 16 years old then we reported the case then nothing happened. In fact i am shocked to see how urgly he looks now.
Also when i got into university of benin we heard some girls there where fighting over him and same in other neighboring schools. From the unset he never wanted to get married the priesthood was his avenue for fulfiling his objective of sleeping with 1billion girls in his life time.
It is not about church Satan is prowling around looking for agents who will allow him. remember that Satan served God in a higher dimension than what we are doing today so he can pervert Gospel and cause a man to live contrary or in error.
God loves Nwadei This is his opportunity to truely repent and make heaven

Let us pray for our priests and not rejoice over the fall of one.As humans,sexuality will always be a thing of struggle. Even for the married folks, it is.

This is quite a bad news to me. Fr. Ogbueshi as he is porpularly known and as we have called him has served in my Parish, Immaculate Heart Cath. Church, Umunede, Delta State. He is a nice man but he allowed the Devil to ruin his wonderful vocation.
It is also amazing how everybody going against the man. What about our girls visiting our Priests, and meeting them at odd places? My sister, "man body no be wood". These are humans for Christ's sake and they are bound to fall. It only takes the grace of God to resist girls, you know,,so keep away from our Priest and allow them to live their celibacy life. If he invites you over, hesitate and stop the habit of seeing them after Masses please. It irritates me and I know it irritates God. Other men are out there wishing that you visit them. Go visit them and seduce them if you so wish, instead of going for an ordained Priest; it's a great curse upon your life if a Priest sees your nakedness and aftermath is too ugly please. "To be forewarned is to be forearmed". Be strong in faith and the sky will be your limits. Oops! Did I say limits? Sorry, the sky will be your beginning.
