The police spokesman, Haruna Mohammed, said the police obtained a medical report, showing that the victim had a penetration.
“On 24th September 2019, we got a report from a woman in Obosi police station that the pastor of Mountain Zion Ministry, Obosi had an unlawful canal knowledge of her daughter.
Police officers went to the scene, inspected it and victim was rushed to hospital and medical report revealed that her vagina was penetrated and laceration of the hymen of the victim occurred.
Police went to the hotel and the evidence seen corresponded with what the victim told the police,” Haruna said
The victim, a 15-year-old SS1 student, according to her, had been lured by the pastor into his car, after conducting a deliverance session on her.
“I didn’t know what happened immediately I entered his car, but I regained consciousness in a room, and I was naked, and the pastor was on top of me, and there was blood in my private part.”
The mother of the victim, Edith Idika, also confirmed that her daughter was raped. She said she had visited the pastor with her daughter, when he told her she needed to undergo deliverance.
“I sent my daughter there, especially as the pastor had said that my daughter had bright future, but had something covering her.
He even said he was ready to train her for us,” she said. The suspect, however, denied the allegations, saying she only prayed for the girl.
