Ogun pastor allegedly rapes 16-year-old chorister, wife helps bolt door

Ogun pastor Peter Taiwo who raped chorister

Police in Ogun have arrested a pastor Peter Taiwo of Christ Apostolic Bible Church, Alaja Oke, Saje, Abeokuta and his wife Elizabeth for allegedly defiling a teenage chorister in the church.

Ogun police spokesperson Abimbola Oyeyemi in a statement on Sunday said the pastor and his wife were arrested on Friday following a complaint lodged by the victim at the Adatan divisional police headquarters.

Elizabeth is alleged to have connived with her husband by shutting the door on the victim during the act after asking the 16-year-old girl to meet her husband in their room to run an errand.

Oyeyemi said, “She explained further that the pastor’s wife later came in after her husband had satisfied himself and met her crying. She told her to stop crying as she was now a woman. She then warned her never to tell anybody or else she would die.

“Upon the report, the DPO, Adatan division, SP Salaudeen Abiodun, quickly detailed his detectives to the scene, where the randy pastor and his wife were promptly apprehended.

“On interrogation, the couple confessed to the crime, but blamed the devil for it. They also pleaded for forgiveness from the victim.

“The victim has been taken to hospital by the police for medical treatment.”

Oyeyemi said the police commissioner Lanre Bankole had ordered the transfer of the suspects to the anti-human trafficking and child labour unit of the state criminal investigation and intelligence department for further investigation.
