Police parade pastor for alleged rape of church member

The Enugu State Police Command, Tuesday, paraded a self-acclaimed pastor, Sunday Egbo over his alleged involvement in the rape of a female member of his Church.

He was paraded by the Enugu State Commissioner of Police, Ahmad Abdur-Rahman, alongside 36 other suspects by the Enugu State Police Command.

Samuel is the General Overseer and founder of Christ Mercy Ministry, Ajuonu, Obukpa, Nsukka Local Government Area of Enugu State.

The alleged rape led to his arrest and subsequent recovery of a small coffin, multiple female pants and braziers from his house.

It was gathered that the victim, name withheld, had gone for prayers, during which the pastor had forceful carnal knowledge of her, after keeping her for several hours.

The Police Commissioner said Samuel returned “at about 2300 hrs and dragged her to his room, brought out a magic stone and threatened to kill her if she raises alarm.”

He further stated that after the rape, “he seized her pant; brazier and brought a small bottle and wanted to insert it into her private part. She struggled and ran out naked.”

Speaking to journalists, the pastor said that he procured the coffin and other items from a native doctor in Kogi State, with the hope of making money and attracting favour.

While admitting to raping the female member, the pastor said.

“I wanted to have sex with her but she refused. So, I raped her.

“I paid the native doctor N200,000, to get the coffin and the flute. He told me to do certain things, after which I will get a Ghana-Must-Go bag full of money in my room.

“But after two weeks, the money did not come as the native doctor told me.”

He left advice for Nigerians and other men of God.

“I believe I was deceived. So, I’m advising other men of God to follow the ways of God. There is no need seeking power and favour in wrong ways.

“I also advise Christians to be mindful of the places they go for prayers,” he said.

Also paraded was an Inspector of Police, Maaling Peter of Rijana Police Station, Kaduna State, and two others for alleged kidnapping.

The CP assured residents of the Coal City State of adequate security, with a warning on all criminals to turn a new leaf or leave the State.

Two ways Manchester United could line up with Donny Van de Beek transfer

Manchester United have emerged as frontrunners in the race to sign Ajax midfielder Donny Van de Beek.

The Guardian report that United are hopeful of signing the Dutch star who has attracted interest from several other elite clubs.

Van de Beek, 23, starred in the Ajax team that reached the Champions League semi-finals in the 2018/19 season and is one of Europe’s most talented young midfielders.

We looked at two ways United could line-up next season if they complete the signing of the versatile Dutchman.

This system would allow Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to accommodate each of his most potent attacking threats.

While Van de Beek is most effective in a box-to-box role, he has experience shielding the back four and could provide the platform for Paul Pogba to roam in a double midfield pivot.

Van de Beek made six appearances in the defensive midfield role for Ajax in the 2019/20 season and has the ability to operate as Solskjaer’s anchorman ahead of Nemanja Matic.

However, Matic offers a more experi…

BBNaija 2020: I will find you a Bayelsa wife, someone like me – Nengi tells Ozo

Big Brother Naija housemate, Nengi, on Sunday said she will find Ozo a Bayelsa wife.

Nengi said this when Ozo said he wanted to take her on a trip after the reality show.

Ozo, however, said he was not interested in another Bayelsa wife.

“I will find you a wife when we leave this place. I will find you someone like me from Bayelsa,” Nengi told Ozo.

But Ozo responded, “if I wanted someone else, I would have chosen.”

Nengi further stated that, “When we leave the house there will be a lot of girls interested in you and you won’t have my time.”

Agreeing that it was a possibility, Ozo insisted he had found something special in her.

Nengi had warned Ozo against mistaking their friendship for a love relationship.

She had maintained that she would not date anyone in the house but Ozo is still trying and working hard to see if she could change her mind.

De Gea hailed by Henderson but warns him for No. 1 spot battle

Dean Henderson has cautioned David de Gea he is aiming for his Manchester United place. The 23-year-old goalkeeper will retreat to Old Trafford after an exceptional loan spell at Sheffield United, determined to take the 1st spot off the Spaniard.

Academy alumnus Henderson recently signed a new six-year contract last month among connections to Chelsea. Thus, making it obvious he sees himself at Old Trafford for the long term.

“I’ll be moving back in the first day of pre-season and sweating my b******s off to get in that starting line-up because it’s something I’ve constantly required and I’m so close now. I have tremendous respect for David. He has been a magnificent goalkeeper for many years.

He’s been remarkable and that’s something I strive to be, to have a profession like his at the club. It’s down to me but I’m beneath no fantasies that I’m going to develop just sat on the bench. I need that game-time.” said Henderson.

Unfortunately, De Gea’s form has come into inquest over the last …
