Winners Pastor arrested for allegedly raping 11 year old girl

A Winners Church Pastor has been arrested for allegedly raping his co-pastor’s 11-year-old daughter.

Pastor Joseph Anthony of the Living Faith Church in Njaba, Imo State, has been arrested for allegedly raping one Favour Chikanma, the 11-year-old daughter of his fellow pastor, one Pastor Chukwuma Okoronkwo, reports.

The spokesperson of the state police command, SP Orlando Ikeokwu, said that Pastor Okoronkwo had accommodated Pastor Anthony in his house but took advantage of the fact that he was home alone with the victim.

On the rape allegation, Pastor Joseph Anthony denied complicity but admitted that he was tempted to commit the act.

According to him, he had just been transferred to the Njaba chapter of Winners Chapel and was waiting to be assigned his personal residential apartment before another Pastor Okoronkwo offered to harbour him till he secured his own accommodation.
