Pastor arraigned over defilement of teenager

A 40-year-old Pastor, Abraham Akpan, was arraigned in an Ikeja Magistrates’ Court in Lagos State on Friday over the defilement of a teenager.
Akpan, of 39, Hassan Ogunmola Street, Ijaiye, a suburb of Lagos State, is facing a three-count charge bordering on rape.

The prosecutor, Sergeant Jimah Iseghede, told the court that Akpan committed the offence between August 27 and 29 at the his residence.

Iseghede told the court that the parents of the 16-year-old girl took her to the church for deliverance where Akpan allegedly defiled her.

“At the deliverance session, when nobody was there, the pastor raped the girl severally,” he said.
The prosecutor said the offence contravened Sections 135, 137 and 141 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011.

Akpan, however, pleaded not guilty to the offence.
The Chief Magistrate, Tajudeen Elias, adjourned the case to September 21 for ruling on the bail application for Akpan.
