Alleged attempt by a Senior Pastor (name withheld) of a new generation church (name withheld) in Asaba, Delta State to rape the church General Overseer’s Wife was on Thursday foiled by the church members who were said to have stumbled on the attempt by the pastor.
It was reliably gathered that the alleged attempt to rape the church Overseer’s wife is at present generating concerns among members of the church and residents of the area where the church is located.
Narrating his ordeal to our correspondent, the General Overseer of the church who did not want his name in the print said: “The Senior Pastor in question has been my friend before he was called to the church to be assisting me, but on this fateful day I cannot say what came over him, I want for one week evangelism out of Asaba, my wife with the children were at home alone, so I came back my wife told me that the pastor came to the house and attempted to rape her but she was rescued by two members who suddenly walked into the house”.
Investigation revealed that the suspect had called the Overseer’s Wife on phone that he was hungry and wanted to come over to the house to eat, and usual not suspecting any danger the women obliged his request. But this was not to be when the pastor arrived the house and found that the children had gone to school as he allegedly went to the bathroom on findings that the Overseer’s Wife was taking her bath.
