Pastor arrested for raping mentally unstable girl
Police at Sakumono have arrested a Pastor, Bright Nana Oduro, of Glorious Light Church on the Spintex road, for allegedly raping an imbecile.
The Sakumono District Police Commander, Superintendent Alex Wowolo, who confirmed the story to The Chronicle on Saturday said investigations are underway in the case.
According to him, on Sunday October 30th, 2011, the mother of an 18-year-old girl, said to be mentally deranged, was sent to the Pastor for prayers.
The District Commander said the girl was locked in the chapel from that Sunday to Wednesday, until she managed to escape. The family, however, managed to locate and apprehend her in the town on Friday November 4, 2011, and in the night at about 10:00pm they sent her back to the supposed man of God, to continue with the prayers.
The Pastor, however, reportedly forced and had sex with her, using a condom, and attempted to go a second round, which she resisted.
The Pastor reportedly went to lock the door, pocketed the key, and raped her again without a condom.
When the girl detected that the man of God was asleep, she managed to retrieve the key and took an amount of GH¢10 from his pocket. She opened the door and escaped.
A taxi driver took her home, to her grandmother, who in turn reported the case to the Sakumono police for action.
