Nduka Anyanwu, a Nigerian pastor, was raped and impregnated at a church compound on Tuesday, February 14, and was given a double life sentence by a Lagos court for sexual offenses and domestic abuse.
The felon defiled the young girls over an extended period of time under the pretense of casting out evil spirits from them. He is reported to be the pastor at a Lord’s Chosen Church branch in Oshodi.
The sisters were molested and impregnated by Anyanwu under the guise of praying with them, the prosecution claims.
The judge characterized the convicted person as morally bankrupt after concluding that the prosecution witnesses’ testimony was reliable and convincing.
She said that the parents of the victims should have also been charged by the authorities because they were equally responsible for instigating the heinous crime.
One of the victims returned home on multiple occasions to inform their parents about the pastor’s inappropriate behavior, but she was constantly beaten and brought back to his house.
“The prosecution has proved the ingredients of the offences against the morally-bankrupt defendant,” she said and sentenced the convict to double life imprisonment.
