After I have done it, he said I should take it to the altar, while sitting down, he started pressing my stomach, he asked me how many months is my pregnancy? I said it is five months.
“He said that he is going to do some spiritual work on me before my delivery. He stood up later and entered a room he later called me to enter and I did. He asked me to sleep which I did, he also said I should remove my clothes, and I did it saying I should also open my legs.
“He dipped his middle finger with oil on my private part. He said my baby is vertical instead of being horizontal. He said he would put oil in my private part and would help me insert it with his private part so that the oil would get into the baby.
“He robbed anointing oil in his private part and asked me to open my legs. He now has sex with me. He said he did not suppose to do it but helped me because my husband is not around.
