A 49-year-old pastor with the Deeper Life Bible Church, Jonah Agbenor, who violated the sanctity of his office and allegedly raped his friend’s 10-year-old daughterbat Ekrokpe community in Ughelli South council area of Delta State, is cooling his heels in police net.

The suspect who is currently being detained at Otu-Jeremi Police Station, Delta State, has reportedly been sexually abusing the little girl with threats that if she spoke out she would die.

According to a human rights activist, Israel Joe, more than 15 pastors have been pleading with them to “put the case aside and allow God be the judge.”

Israel Joe wrote: “A 49 years old Deeper life Pastor Jonah Agbenor has allegedly defiled a 10 years old girl repeatedly. We have been on his trail since Thursday last week, and he was finally arrested and is currently detained at Otu-Jeremi Police station.

“The incident which took place at Ekrokpe community Ughelli South Local Government Area, has left the area in absolute shock as the pastor is a very close friend to the father of the little girl,” he wrote.

“More than 15 pastors have been prevailing on us to put the issue aside and allow God be the judge, but I asked if he realised God would judge when he was everyday sexually abusing the little girl with threats that if she spoke out she would die.

“I, at this point call on the DPO of Otu-Jeremi never to compromise the investigations, as we are no longer comfortable with his plea for peace. It is a criminal offence and should be transferred to state Headquarters for further investigations and prosecution

“Being a pastor does not keep one immune from issues of criminal prosecution. Thanks to our Cdhr Orhuvworun/Usiefrun unit for following up this matter from day one.”
