Reports say Nigeria’s Rivers State Police Command is investigating the pastor identified as Tony Daniel of Jesus Alive Word Refiners International Church in Port Harcourt.
"Choir mistress & another female church member held me as pastor raped me" - 20-year-old lady
A 20-year-old woman has alleged that a choir mistress and another female church member held her while their pastor raped her violently.
The ordeal of the young lady has been brought to light by a human rights advocacy group, the Centre For Basic Rights Protection And Accountability Campaign which she reported the incident to.
According to the victim, pastor Tony Daniel gave her some substance suspected to be 'juju' to swear after the rape, that she would keep the assault secret.
She recounted how she was invited by the man of God to resolve an issue she was having with his wife but he grabbed and rapped her instead, with the help of the choir mistress and the other female church member.
Rivers State Police Command’s spokesperson, SP Nnamdi Omoni said that investigations have kickstarted following a petition by the Centre For Basic Rights Protection And Accountability Campaign on behalf of the victim.
Meanwhile, a member of the group, Barrister Festus Bonwin said his outfit has requested Police protection for the victim.
It appears this is not the first time pastor Tony Daniel has found himself in the center of a sex scandal. According to Lindaikejisblog.com, Wazobia 94.1 FM News reported on March 19, 2020, last year that he was detained at Azikiwe Divisional Police headquarters following an allegation by one Ndidi Austin that he had caught the Pastor with his wife in a hotel.
