    A forty-nine-year old man identified simply as Jonah Agbenor has been arrested for allegedly defiling a ten-year old girl (name withheld) at Ekrokpe Community, Ughelli South Local Government Area of Delta State.

    AUTHENTIC NEWS DAILY  gathered that the arrest was made on Wednesday May 26, 2021.

    According to sources, “The suspect was arrested by the police in Otu-Jeremi Divisional Headquarters through the efforts made by the Committee for the Defence of Human Right (CDHR), Orhunwhorhun/Usieffurun Unit who followed up the matter.

    “Over fifteen pastors have reportedly been prevailing on the CDHR not to take up the matter and press charges against the suspect but to let God be the judge.

    “But the State Secretary of the Committee for the Defence of Human Right, Comrade Israel Joe insisted that the suspect be arrested and asked if the pedophile who was discovered to be a pastor did not know that he is a pastor before embarking on his sexual escapade.

    “If he (Jonah Agbenor) realized God would judge when he was everyday sexually abusing the little girl with threats that if she speaks out, she would die.”

    “The CDHR through the state secretary, Comrade Joe urged the Divisional Police Officer, DPO never to compromise on the investigation.

    He said, ”We are no longer comfortable with his plea for peace. It is a criminal offence and should be transferred to State Headquarters for further investigations and prosecution. Being a pastor does not keep one immune from issues of criminal prosecution.”

    On his part, the CDHR Coordinator in Orhunwhorhun/Usieffurun Unit, Comrade Ajokpeoghene Emoredeye, stated how they got to know about the information, said the bubble bursted when the parents of the girl came to the Otu-Jeremi Hospital with the girl for medical checkup.

    According to Comrade Ajokpeoghene Emoredeye who said that, “our investigation revealed that the said Pastor took away the virginity of the girl in an uncompleted building within the neighbourhood.

    “The innocent girl told the CDHR team that the second time the pedo had canal knowledge with her, was when the father asked her (the girl) to go and get her phone from the rapacious man’s house.

    “When the father asked her to go and bring his phone that was charging in the Pastor’s house, the girl refused but the father insisted that she must go, unknown to him that her daughter was being abused by an regarded as a family member.

    “The one that shocked us was when she confessed that the man had canal knowledge of her on her (victim’s) father’s bed. The girl was continually under threat by the man. But we got to know when the father brought her to Otu-Jeremi Hospital.”

    When contacted for comments, the State Acting Police Public Relations Officer PPRO Edafe Bright confirmed the report.

    He said, ”The incident is confirmed but it is you that told me that the man is a pastor. We don’t have that information that he is a pastor.

    “As far as our investigation is concerned, he is not a pastor. So, I don’t have any information whether he is a pastor.”
