According to (NAN), George Okafor, Command’s Public Relations Officer has confirmed the arrest.

Okafor stated that the suspect, Ibe confessed to raping Okute because she refused to marry him after investing in her.

“The suspect is an impostor who is among those claiming to be pastor but dent God’s image through their atrocities,” Okafor said.

“He has been arrested and has confessed to committing the crime, though he claimed that she refused to marry him after investing heavily on her.

“It is terrible that he choose to rape the girl for refusing to marry him, as he will be used to set example to others who commit such crimes,” he added.

Okafor highlighted that further investigations are on-going.
