A church pastor allegedly defiled a young choir member in rural Edo state.
The Edo state police have arrested a pastor who allegedly raped a 12-year-old choir member of his church at Afuda-Uromi, Esan North East Local Government Area of the state. The incident incurred the wrath of some residents around the area, who destroyed some church equipment, while the pastor was detained at the Uromi Police Divisional headquarters.
Narrating her ordeal, the victim (who cannot be named for legal reasons) said she had gone to church for choir rehearsals when the incident occurred. She said she and three other children were in the church, awaiting the arrival of other members, when the pastor and founder of the church drove into the premises in his Mercedes Benz car, and started enquiring about their names. She said after they had given their names, the pastor called her into his office and asked her to sit on his laps. While on his laps, the victim alleged that the pastor began to suck her breast and dipped his finger into her private part. She added that she felt severe pains in her stomach, and consequently struggled to regain her freedom. The incident, she alleged, also caused her to bleed as a result of the injuries she sustained. The father of the victim said that he and his family became members of the church barely two months ago.
