Two brothers, suspected to be children of one Jude Nnamani, a pastor of the Assemblies of God Church in Kafuso Ogwu of Ishiagu community in Ivo Local Government Area of Ebonyi state, have been arrested by the police over an alleged rape.
The duo, Nnaemeka Nnamani and Chiemerie Nnamani allegedly lured two sisters simply identified as Favour and Uloma to a corner in the church and had carnal knowledge of them.
A resident of the area, who identified himself as Igwe Moses, said, “It is not just defiling these children aged 7 and 9 respectively, they have committed a sacrilege.
“They lured the minors to a corner of the church and raped them.
“This is very bad. How would someone whose father has been preaching against such ungodly acts not learn anything good?
“This is discretion of the church,” Moses added, stressing that they sinned against God and man for defiling these innocent children.
Confirming the incident, the state Police spokesperson, ASP George Okafor, said, “The children’s parents are living around the church where the father of the suspects currently serves as a pastor.
“A medical report showed that the two children were defiled and the matter is already in court,” the spokesperson stated.
