A PASTOR of Lord of Nations Church was arrested by agents of the Criminal Investigation Group after a 17-year-old girl complained that he had been abusing her for almost 10 months until the time of her rescue on Monday in Mandaluyong City.
CIDG head Chief Supt. Samuel Pagdilao identified the suspect as Antonio Llamado, 45, a pastor of the LNC and resident of Mandaluyong City.
Pagdilao said elements of the Women and Children Protection Division, led by Senior Superintendent Emma Libunao, rescued the victim from the house of the suspect where he also arrested.
The victim claimed Llamado recruited her into his church last year with the promise that she would be sent to school, but eventually raped her and repeatedly abuse her whenever his wife was not at home.
