Two pastors identified as Austin Emmanuel and Peter Davies have been arrested in Rivers State for allegedly raping a member of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC)
Information gathered reveals that the 27 year old corps member was posted to the Obio/Akpor Local Government Area of the state for her primary assignment.
The suspects were also said to be currently being detained at the State Criminal and Investigation and Intelligence Department in Port Harcourt, the state capital.
Narrating her ordeal, the corps member who is an indigene of Plateau state disclosed that Austin had invited her to come to his house on August 29 which was also his birthday. She also added that the pastor was later joined by Davies.
According to the victim, she didn’t see any reason to be suspicious since she has been worshipping in his church for the past five months.
The NYSC member also said the last thing she could remember on that fateful day was that the suspects annointed her with a certain oil while they prayed and she slept off and when she woke up the next day, she noticed bruises on the surface and inside her private part, and that she felt serious pains within the region.
She further revealed how the duo asked her to sow her mobile phone as a seed before they started conducting deliverance on her.
Medical report indicates that the hymen had been torn, with bruises in the labia minora of the pubic region.
The father of the victim who is a Police officer and her mother insist that justice must be served to the culprits in order to prevent the further assault of female corps members.
The International Federation of Women Lawyers (FIDA), Rivers State branch has also stepped into the matter and has insisted that justice should prevail.
