A pastor in Port Harcourt identified as Nzube Ohuama, has been arrested after he allegedly raped a 13-year-old girl during a vigil night programme organised by the church.
The young victim had gone with her parents to the church for the monthly vigil when the pastor lured her into a private room attached to the church and raped her.
Ohuama had earlier told the parents that she had an evil spirit that was tormenting her and he had to conduct a special prayer for her at the programme.
The pastor, according to information, had further warned the parents of the girl that if the evil spirit tormenting the girl was not exorcised, a lot of harm would continue dogging them, so they had given him the go ahead to deliver her of the foul spirit but instead of doing what he promised, he proceeded to rape her.
It was gathered that at about 1 am when the vigil was in full swing, the pastor called out the girl, told the congregation that he had a special assignment he needed to carry out on her alone, and took her to the private room.
While he was at it that the girl’s sister walked to the pastor’s office, and was surprised to hear her sister crying in pain. When the girl finally came out, she had blood stains on her, and her sister pressured her into telling what Pastor Ohuama did to her.
They reported the rape to their parents who lodged a complaint at the Fegge Police Station, and Pastor Ohuama was promptly arrested.
