The Ogun State Police Command has arrested one Pastor Segun Alawode, 37, of Eternal Sacred Order C & S Church Sabo, Odogbolu, Ogun State, for raping a 32-year-old lady in his church premises at Odogbolu Ogun State.
According to report from Vanguard, the victim alleged that the pastor was in a prayer session with her when he asked her (victim) to hold on to some candle stick and suddenly and forcefully pulled off her wears before he eventually had carnal knowledge of her in the church.
The anti-crime team attached to Odogbolu Division of Ogun State Command apprehended him when the victim and her relations stormed the Police Division to notify the Divisional Police Officer of the pastor’s misdeeds and to seek justice through the police.
According to the state’s police spokesman, Muyiwa Adejobi, “the matter is currently at the Anti Human Trafficking and Child Labour Unit of the Department of Criminal Investigation, Abeokuta and medical reports so far received on the matter confirmed that the pastor actually committed the offence and he has confessed to the crime. The matter will soon be charged to court.”
Meantime, the Commissioner of Police Ogun State, CP Ikemefuna Okoye, has condemned the criminal act of the pastor who was involved in a r**e case. He further directed that the pastor be charged to court without delay for such will serve as deterrent to other rapists particularly “men of God”who are fond of engaging themselves in criminal acts.
CP Okoye also commended the anti crime patrol team along the ever busy Lagos/Ibadan road for arresting the armed robbers who terrorize innocent Nigerians on the said expressway.
