A so-called pastor who raped pregnant girls and also operated a baby factory has been arrested by the police in Abia State.
Punch reports that Pastor Tochukwu operates a church and a medical center which has been converted into a baby factory at number 252 Faulks Road, Aba, the commercial capital of the state.
While parading the suspect at the Command headquarters in Umuahia, the state Commissioner of Police, CP Leye Oyebade, said that the pastor has been constantly and repeatedly raping the pregnant girls at his medical center.
Oyebade said that when one of the rescued girls was interrogated, she claimed that Pastor Tochukwu has been raping them and in one of his attempt to rape one of the girls, he was stabbed in the neck by the victim with a glass object she laid her hands on.
He added that one of the girls who gave her name as Imeobong Udoh, under interrogation, alleged that her two months old baby she delivered at the medical center run by the pastor, was forcefully taken away from her by the wife of the pastor and sold to an unknown person.
The CP said that his men who went for the operation were able to rescue a two-week-old baby girl who has been taken to a motherless baby’s home for care and custody.
Another victim, Blessing Ariet, who confessed that the pastor used to rape her and other girls, said that the Tochukwu tried to rape her and when she refused that, he started beating her with a belt, leaving several marks on her body.
She said that there was a time when he attempted to sleep with her forcefully but had to stop when his wife came suddenly into the room she was kept and he pretended that he was examining her stomach.
Another girl, Jane Ikechukwu, said that the wife of the pastor who is now as large was aware of her husband’s raping of the girls in the medical center.
"The wife said that when he sleeps with us, the babies in our womb are being fed naturally,” Ikechukwu told the police.
