The Akwa Ibom State Police Command on Tuesday arrested a 60-year-old pastor who doubles as a traditional healer, Mr. Udo Job, for raping a 14-year-old daughter of one of his patients.
The girl had visited her sick father when the man sexually assaulted her.
The Commissioner of Police in the state, Mr. Gabriel Achong, who was represented by the Assistant Commissioner of Police, Mike Okoli, said the pastor sent the girl’s mother to the market and lured her into his room and forcibly defiled her.
Parading a number of other rape suspects, the police also brought before journalists 11 secondary school students who gang-raped a 19-year-old girl in an open market at Esit Eket.
Not done, they later took the girl to their room where they continued the assault.
The culprits, mainly secondary school students of National High School, Esit Eket, in an interview with journalists confessed to the crime.
