THE officers at Oyo State Police Command has arrested a self acclaimed pastor, who allegedly raped the daughter of a genuine pastor of a popular church during a robbery operation.
The police boss said: “On July 22, 2014 at about 11:45pm, one
pastor reported that four armed men jumped into his compound,
knocked on his window and ordered him to open his main door.
“He stated further that he complied and three armed men entered
his living room while one was standing outside with a gun.
“They ordered everyone to lie down and ransacked the whole
house. They carted away valuable items. The robbery victim
revealed further that during the robbery operation, one of his
daughters was raped by one of the men.
“On receipt of the information, policemen of the command swung
into action and through investigation led to the arrest of all the
members of the robbery gang.
The men were Afolabi Oluwatobi (24), Morakinyo Olufemi (43),
Ayodele Ademola (55) and Azeez Rafiu (27).55-year-old Ademola
was the one who raped the girl and claimed that was his first time
“Ademola, in his confessional statement said he did not know
what came over him when he raped the girl.’’
He said: “My wife is dead. I have three children, a boy and two
girls. When we were robbing the house, we ordered all of them to
lie down. Then, I saw the girl who had a wrapper round her waist. I
ordered her to remove her pants but she refused. I then begged
her to do so and she did. It was the devil. I was the only one that
raped the girl.”
One of his partners in crime, Azeez Rafiu, 27, confirmed that it was
the ‘pastor’ that raped the girl.
He said: “We warned him but he would not listen. It was this same
pastor that introduced me to the group.
“He promised to buy me a motorcycle after he had paid me
N10,000 for taking him round the city. I never knew he was an
armed robber until he deceived me that we were going to a party
but ended up robbing a house with other members. That time, he
told me it was too late for me to turn down his invitation.”
The police boss said all the suspects would soon be charged to
