Rivers State Police Command is probing one Pastor Tony Daniel of Jesus Alive Word Refiners International Church, Port Harcourt, fir allegedly raping a 20-year-old woman.
Human rights advocacy group, Centre For Basic Rights Protection And Accountability Campaign, said the alleged victim reported the incident to them saying the victim claimed that, a choir mistress and a female church member held her while Pastor Daniel raped her violently.
The victim also alleged that the pastor gave her some substance suspected to be ‘juju’ after the incident to swear that she will not tell anybody.
She explained that it all started after she was invited by the Pastor for settlement of issues she is having with the Pastor’s wife.
Spokesperson of the command, SP Nnamdi Omoni said the investigation followed a petition by the human rights.
A member of the group, Barrister Festus Bonwin said they wrote the petition to demand for an investigation into the allegation made against the Pastor.
Meanwhile, Wazobia 94.1 FM News had reported on March 19, 2020 last year that Pastor Daniel was detained at Azikiwe Divisional Police headquarters following a complaint by one Mr Ndidi Austin who alleged he caught the Pastor with his wife in a hotel.
