Men of the Ogun State Police Command have arrested a Pastor of Christ Apostolic Bible church, Alaja Oke, Saje, Abeokuta, Peter Taiwo and his wife Elizabeth Taiwo for the alleged rape of a choir.

The suspects were arrested for conniving to defile the 16-year-old choir member of the church.

A statement by the Command’s PRO, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said they were arrested following a complaint lodged at Adatan divisional headquarters by the victim.

She reported that while she went to the church for choir practice, the pastor’s wife told her to go and meet the pastor in their room because the pastor wanted to send her on errand.

She stated further that as soon as she got into the room, the pastor’s wife locked the door from outside, consequent upon which the pastor overpowered her, and forcefully had sex with her.

The victim explained further that the pastor’s wife later came in after her husband has defiled her and warned her never to tell anybody or else she will die.
