Nasarawa police arrest evangelist over rape of 13-years-old girl

The Nasarawa State Police Command has arrested an evangelist alleged to have raped a 13-year-old girl in Marraraba, Karu Local Government area of the state.

The Commissioner of Police, Mr Sani Mohammed, told newsmen on Monday in Lafia, that the suspect was invited to stay with the girl's family in Marraraba, based on trust, but abused the privilege by forcefully having carnal knowledge of the minor.

"It is unfortunate that the Pastor took advantage of his closeness to a family among his congregation to rape their 13-year-old daughter," he said.

The Commissioner, who claimed that the suspect had confessed to committing the crime, said that the evangelist had earlier told investigators that he was trying to remove demons from the girl.

Mohammed said that investigation had been concluded on the matter and the suspect would soon be charged to court.
