A new generation Pastor’s aide, Bethel Samuel has been arrested by police in Rivers State for allegedly raping a 3-year-old girl. The 28-year-old suspect, who confessed to the crime, said he did not know what came over him when he held the girl and defiled her.
He said, "I am the personal assistant to my pastor at Divine Assembly. We were organising a crusade. We went out to paste the crusade posters when my pastor called me. He directed me to go to his house and bring some money. It was there that I saw the children playing around. I grabbed one of them and that was what happened. It was purely the handiwork of the devil."
The state Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Nnamdi Omoni, said the suspect was arrested after relatives of the victim raised the alarm and the matter was reported to the police.
He said the suspect would be charged to court at the end of investigations.
