A church pastor and self-styled prophet who repeatedly raped children after "holy baths" has been jailed for 34 years.

Michael Oluronbi, 60, abused six girls and a boy over a 20-year period, claiming the baths would ward off evil.

His wife Juliana Oluronbi, who arranged abortions after four girls became pregnant, was jailed for 11 years.

The trial heard Oluronbi had victims stand naked in a bowl of water to undergo what he called "spiritual bathing".

During the trial, jurors heard Oluronbi was linked to the Cherubim and Seraphim Church in Edgbaston, which has roots in Nigeria.

He set up on his own splinter group for about 40 adults and children, separate to the church and located at another address.
