The General Overseer of Prayer Tabernacle Ministry at Kamurum Bajju in Kaduna State has been charged to Kafanchan Chief Magistrate Court for allegedly raping two sisters and putting them in the family way.
Pastor Enoch Sule was said to have raped one of the sisters after taking her to a mountain and lied to her that the act was inspired by the Holy Spirit.
“When the case came up for mention, the prosecutor, Marcus Audu, told the court that the Pastor initially deceived the older sister who is 19 years old into accompanying him to the mountain for prayer and fasting.”
“When they reached the mountain, the pastor was said to have instructed the girl to remove her clothes and pray naked as directed by the Holy Spirit. The girl and her sister are pregnant,” an official of the NGO said.
According to the Civil Defence prosecutor, Sule then had sexual intercourse against her wish, which resulted in her pregnancy.
A month later, the court was told, the accused repeated the same trick on the girl’s younger sister, 17 years old, and also got her pregnant.
Thus, reports on the two sisters’ case files against the pastor were filed and read out separately.
The presiding judge, Samson Kwasu, while remanding the accused person in a correctional facility directed the prosecutor to forward the case files to the State Director of Public Prosecution for legal advice.
The judge thus, adjourned the case to September, 8th for further mention.
