Married Pastor Arrested Over Rape Of Teenage Girl In Abuja

A 34-year-old pastor has been arrested by the police for allegedly raping a 17-year-old girl in Phase 2, Site 1 area of Kubwa, Abuja.

The suspect was alleged to have raped the victim several times before he was eventually arrested.

City News gathered that the suspect had lured his victim from Kaduna where he went for pastoral work in a church in Kaduna last April.

The source said the suspect, who had been married for over two years without any issue, had convinced the mother of the teenage girl that he would to sponsor her in school if she lived with him in Abuja.

“Instead of fulfilling his promise, he turned the girl to a sexual partner since that time he took her,” the source alleged.

The source however said trouble ensued when the victim, who was unable to reach her parents as her phone was seized by the suspect, became fed up with the whole situation and refused to go to bed with him.

“When he discovered that the girl was not ready to give in, he brought out a pump action gun which he threatened her with,” the source alleged.

Though the suspect eventually had his way, the victim later reported the matter to the wife who quickly sent her away.

City News further learnt that the victim managed to get back home where she narrated her ordeal to the mother who subsequently reported the case to the police in Kubwa.

Confirming the incident, the Kubwa Divisional Police Officer, Chief Superintendent Nurrudeen Sabo, said the suspect has been arrested and the case is being investigated.
