Enoch Sule, a Kaduna-based pastor who allegedly impregnated two sisters during prayer sessions on a mountain, said he was guided by the “Holy Spirit.”
The pastor, doubling as the General Overseer of Prayer Tabernacle Ministry, Kamurum Bajju, Kaduna State, would later be arraigned before Kafanchan Magistrate court after he was arrested by men of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC).
However, the pastor pleaded for mercy, but WikkiTimes learnt that the court had no justification to rule over the case.
In view of this, Magistrate Samson Kwasu, ruled that the pastor be remanded in prison facility pending further mention, scheduled for September 8, 2022. But he advised that the case be filed with the Directorate of Public Prosecution (DPP) for piece of legal advice.
According to the magistrate, the offence is contrary to section 258 of the Kaduna State Penal Code Law.
The NSCDC prosecutor, Marcus Audu, explained that Salama Sexual Assault Referral Centre, reported the matter to the agency’s office on August 8.
According to Audu, the pastor deceived the older sister, aged 19, to accompany him to the mountain for prayer and fasting.
Audu told the court that the pastor instructed the 19-year-old lady to undress while on the mountain, adding it was the Holy Spirit that directed him.
The pastor subsequently raped the girl and it resulted in pregnancy, the NSCDC prosecutor stated.
A month later, according to Audu, the pastor lured the victim’s 17-year-old sister to the same spot, raped and impregnated her.
