The Police in Ebonyi State have arrested one David Ibe, a 29-year old pastor of Christ Command Mission in Igboeze Onicha, Onicha local government area of the state, for allegedly raping a 23-year old girl.
It was gathered that the pastor lured the victim into an uncompleted building at about 9:30pm in Oruagha Umuobunna Uburu in Ohaozara local government area of the state and raped her.
The spokesperson for the Ebonyi Police Command, George Okafor, confirmed the incident.
Mr. Okafor, an assistant superintendent of police, said: ‘’He is an impostor. He’s among those who claim to be pastors but dent the image of God. They are the horrible types that pretend to be human beings and you will never know that you are actually dinning with the devil.”
He said Mr. Ibe confessed to the crime during interrogation.
‘’He is cooling off in the police and he has confessed to the crime,” Mr. Okafor said. “When he was interrogated, he started making excuse of having invested on the girl and the lady in question refused to marry him, so he decided to rape her.
‘’It is a terrible situation and this is the type of people we want to get at so as to use them to set example for others.
‘’When we are preaching against violence against women, his type will do the worst”.
