The Anambra State Police Command has launched a manhunt for a pastor, Ekene Adaoji, with Jesus Miracle Ministries in Awka, Anambra State. Adaoji fled after he allegedly raped a 13-year-old boy, Abuchi to ‘cure’ his (pastor’s) homosexuality.
PUNCH reports that a traditionalist told the pastor that he would be cured if he sleeps with a male teenager.
Narrating the incident, the victim said the pastor tricked him to stay back after a vigil, and drugged him to sleep before abusing him sexually.
“The pastor told me to wait till dawn and when I insisted on going home, he applied a substance on my eyes which made me to sleep.
When I woke up, I noticed that my trousers were torn and my anus was damp. I also felt pains in my anus. I went home to inform my people about what happened,” he told PUNCH
A relative of the victim, Ngozi, said the family was not aware that Abuchi went to the church that night.
She said after Abuchi told them about what happened, they rushed to the church only to discover that the pastor had fled.
The Anambra State Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Nkiru Nwode, confirmed the report, stating that “the victim has been taken to a hospital for treatment”.
