A General Overseer of a church was arrested by Detectives attached to the Delta State Police Command, Asaba, on Thursday for allegedly raping a seven-year-old daughter of his church member.
The police spokesperson in the state, Mrs. Celestina Kalu, who confirmed the incident, said the victim was allegedly lured into the church office with the intention of praying for her. She further said the suspect’s church was along Ibusa Road, Koka, Asaba.
It was in the course of prayers that she was raped.
According to Punch, the victim could no longer keep the incident to herself, hence she told her parents everything.
She was later taken to Federal Medical Centre(FMC) in Asaba, where it was confirmed that she had been raped after discovery of bruises in her private parts.
Kalu said investigation is still going on.
