Another weird story! A General Overseer of a church in Asaba, Delta State (name withheld) has been apprehended by the police for allegedly raping a seven-year-old daughter of his member.

The police spokesperson in the state, Mrs. Celestina Kalu, who confirmed the development, said the suspect's church was along Ibusa Road, Koka, Asaba.

The pastor was arrested by the detectives attached to the Delta State Police Command, Asaba, on Thursday.

She said the victim was allegedly lured into the church office with the intention of praying for her.

It was in the course of prayers that she was raped.

It was gathered that the victim could not keep the incident to herself, hence she cried to her parents on the matter.

Her parents were said to have taken her to the Federal Medical Centre in Asaba, where it was confirmed that she had been raped after discovery of bruises in her private parts.

Kalu said the matter was reported at the police headquarters, where detectives were assigned to investigate the matter, adding that upon investigation, the suspect was arrested and he confessed to the crime.
