The Ondo State Command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) says it has arrested a 55-year-old pastor, identified as Jacob Ojomo for having carnal knowledge of a 15 year-old girl.
State Commandant of the Corps, Mr. Adeyinka Fasiu, disclosed this in a statement in Akure, the state capital.
Fasiu said the incident was allegedly carried out at Plaza axis of Oke Ijebu road, in the state capital.
He disclosed that the pastor was caught in the act by the girl’s mother, adding that she raised an alarm to the corps detectives, who had been on the trail of the suspect following his suspicious relationship with the victim.
The State Commandant added that aside the confessional statements of the suspect, medical test from the hospital confirmed that there was penetration leading to rape of the victim.
In a related development, the command has arrested a 29-year-old school drop out, identified as Adesina Ojo for impersonation.
Ojo was apprehended for impersonating a staff of the Benin Electricity Distribution Company (BEDC) by collecting payment from customers without remitting the fund to the company.
The command, however, said both the rapist and impersonator would be charged to court after preliminary investigations were concluded.
