The police at MAN Centre Division led by CSP Tanaruno Folashade arrested the church worker identified as, Saviour Udoh, for the despicavble act.

The incident happened at the church in Oshifila Street, Anifowoshe in Ikeja, Lagos where the mother of the victim took her for prayer and protection.

It was gathered that the mother of the victim took her to the church and went to work with the intention that she will be safe there before she will take her back home.

However, when the mother came to pick the victim, she met Udoh with the victim where they were sleeping and covered themselves with clothes which they used during the romp.

When the mother took the 5-year old victim home, she was busy putting her hand inside her private part because of the sperm drifting from it. The mother then suspected her action and checked her private part only to discover that she had been defiled. She asked her who did it and the victim mentioned Udoh.

The matter was reported to the MAN Centre Police Station and Udoh was arrested. The matter was later transferred to the Gender Section of the State Command for further investigations.

Police source said that Udoh admitted but claimed that it was the devil that pushed him to do so inside the church. The police found him culpable and charged him before Ogba Magistrates Court for defilement.

The court did not take his plea and did not grant him bail. The prosecutor, Supol E Ayorinde, informed the court that it was a case of defilement which was a capital offence and needed DPP advice.

Thus, the Presiding Magistrate, Mrs. B.O .Osunsanmi, ordered him to be remanded in prison without an option of bail.

The court also directed the prosecutor to duplicate the file and send to DPP for advice.

The matter was adjourned till 6th February, 2019, when the court expected the DPP report to be available.

However, the matter may be transferred to the High Court if the DPP finds him culpable for the alleged offence. He may spend many years in prison if he is tried and found guilty by the court because of the nature of the offence.

  38. That too bad in this modern world how can you rape someone in church your offence is double and I know you won’t go scoot free

  39. You men filled with evil spirits and that stands in wrong foundation. Yet they claim to children of God frequently church activities yet there is no Christ in them, even in the church.

  40. Omg, a 5year old for that matter. This is evil and disheartening. Don’t know what this world is becoming now. A lot of evil deeds going on day by day without fear. How could people allow themselves to be used by the devil in such an evil way. Good the perpetrator is caught and in custody and hope thorough investigation is carried out for justice to be served. He deserves capital punishment to serve as a lesson to other. I suggest the child be taking to the hospital for medical check up and good counselling to avoid psychological effect on her. God have mercy on this world.

  41. This rape issue is becoming something else, I wonder why it keeps occuring every where this days, he should be jailed for such act

  42. How could you leave your daughter and under age with out a maid in the church and went to to work. Who will look out for her? That man must go to jail straight.

  43. This is really bad. Raping little girl in the house of God and claim that its devil hand work? You will discuss with devil when you re send to prison.

  44. My God, what are they really enjoying raping under aged children, I don’t think it is ordinary, let him be prosecuted and punished severely

  45. Come to think of it how will he feel if they did the same thing to his own sister, seriously he has to face the law

  46. So he said is the devil that used him… So who is the devil? He is the devil oooooo… He should be seriously punished for his act.

  47. This will be a big lesson to other mothers out there they should at list know the kind of person they will put in care of there children

  48. This man should be severely dealt with, he is an agent of darkness, he came into that church for a mission, thank God he has been arrested.

  49. Yes o seriously he need am . Abeg make them get pastor for that man for deliverance o. Why ? where is your wife?

  50. What kind of church worker would that man say he is, if he can even do such a thing inside a church, only God will have mercy on him, he needs to be jailed

  51. The man in question should face the consequences, because this issue of rapist is getting worst everyday.
