A pastor who lured a 13-year old girl to his room and raped her, on the pretext of casting demons out of her has been arrested by the Police.
A pastor who goes by the name Ifeanyi Bernard has been arrested by the Nigerian Police for allegedly raping a 13-year old girl in Nasarawa state.
The pastor while speaking with the Punch, said that he has been into evangelism for quite a very long period of time and that he has been casting out demon from them. He however said that he does not know what came over him when he had sex with the girl.
I had been into evangelism for some years now and I have been casting out demons from people who have spiritual and family problems before I met this young girl through her father, Mr. Martins Ijiwo.“I have been a friend of the family for quite some time.“I used my anointing oil to lure her into my room and all of a sudden, I was carried away and before I knew what was happening, I saw myself making love to her.
However, the Commissioner of Police in the state, Mr. Sanni Muhammed while parading the suspect at the Criminal Investigative Department said that the suspect was arrested following a report by the victim’s father, Mr. Martins Ijiwo.
The commissioner explained that the pastor lured the victim to his house under the pretext of casting out demon from her.
The pastor took advantage of his closeness to the girl’s family – who are members of his congregation – to rape their 13-year-old daughter under the guise of casting out demons from her.
However, the police could only get to arrest the pastor who threatened to kill the victim should she tell anybody, when she eventually told her father who reported the pastor to the authorities.
