According to the church, Onyekachukwu is “not an ordained Pastor” and has been arrested by the police.
The suspect was arrested by operatives of the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons.
Onyekachuku hails from Nsukka in Enugu State, had met the victim, a Junior Secondary School 2 pupil in the Karmo area sometime in 2018 and started making love advances to her.
NAPTIP had in a statement on Sunday by the Head of its Press and Public Relations, Stella Nezan, said the pastor, after his arrest and during interrogation, confessed to have sexually abused the girl two times and blamed the act on the “work of the devil.”
When he met the victim for the first time, Onyekachuku was said to have volunteered to provide shelter and also to deliver her from witchcraft. The victim had lost her parents in 2018 and was said to be in dire need of accommodation.
