Pastor Arrested For Raping 13-Yr-Old Girl

The Police in Imo State have arrested the General Overseer and head of a popular church in Ikeduru council area of the state, for allegedly raping a 13-year-old girl.
.
This followed a petition written to the Owerri Police Area Command by the lawyer to the father of the alleged rape victim, Mr Emperor Iwuala.
.
The father of the victim, a widower and does not want his name in print, had alleged that the pastor severally raped his daughter between 2010 and 2013.
.
According to him, “Between 2010 and 2013, I was sick and a friend of mine introduced me to the prophet. Because of my sickness, I lost my job as a luxury bus driver and also my accommodation in Naze Owerri.
.
“Consequently, the prophet offered me accommodation in his house which he also uses as church. I moved in with my two little daughters.
.
Because of my condition then, I did not know that the prophet was taking advantage of my predicament to defile one of my daughters.
.
“One of the days, his wife caught him trying to abuse my daughter and she raised the alarm, which made the husband to send her packing.
.
“Because of that, I sent my children away but the prophet threatened me, saying that I must bring my children back to the church. It was when my daughters went out of the prophet’s custody that they could narrate their ordeal to me.
.
“Ironically, the prophet went to the police recently to report that I arranged to kidnap my daughters from his house.”
.
Confirming the petition, Iwuala also disclosed that the said prophet was currently under investigation by the police for buying an alleged stolen vehicle.
.
He applauded the security operatives for the impressive manner they are handling the matter.
.
When the suspect’s prayer house was visited, a worshipper who spoke on condition of anonymity confirmed that the pastor was arrested by the police and was still in their custody.
