Rivers State Police have arrested two pastors identified as Austin Emmanuel and Peter Davies for allegedly raping a 27-year-old National Youths Service Corps (NYSC) member.
It was gathered that the corps member who is observing her primary assignment at the Obio/Akpor Local Government Area of the state was invited by one of the Pastors, Emanuel, for an indoor birthday party and in the course of the celebration, he was later joined by another pastor, Davies.
It was gathered that the two pastors offered to pray for the victim and in the middle of the prayer, they applied a liquid on her face which made her unconscious before they raped her.
Narrating her ordeal, the corps member said she started experiencing pains in her private parts after regaining consciousness.
“Actually, it was after I regained consciousness that I was feeling pain in my vagina. I told my mum and she reported to the police and they said that they should take me to doctors without borders for a checkup. I found out that I was fingered according to the report and saw bruises seen all over my body.” she said.
Recounting the actions taken, the father of the victim said,
“When I saw her, she was not in her senses. I started asking questions. Then they told me that they have arrested the suspects. I saw the suspects and they told me what happened.
“We took her to a psychiatric hospital. They tested her and did everything. Wherever we went, the NYSC followed us on the matter. An NYSC official reported the issue to the headquarters.
If we allow this matter to die, they will do the same thing to other female corps members. That is why I decided to come to FIDA,” he explained.
The parents of the victim have called on the Rivers State Police Command not to allow the accused persons to go scot-free to serve as a deterrent to other persons.
The two pastors are currently being detained at the State Criminal and Investigation and Intelligence Department, Port Harcourt as The state Commissioner of Police, Joseph Mukan, said the matter was under investigation.
“Yes, we refer to this issue, but the matter has not reached my desk. I believe it is still under investigation,” Mukan stated.
