A pastor, identified as Tony Daniel, of Jesus Alive Word Refiners International Church, Port Harcourt, has been accused of raping a 20-year-old woman.

Human rights advocacy group, Centre For Basic Rights Protection And Accountability Campaign, said the alleged victim reported the incident to them.

According to the lady, a choir mistress and a female church member held her while Pastor Daniel raped her.

The victim, also alleged that the pastor, gave her some substance suspected to be ‘juju’ after the incident to swear that she will not tell anybody.

She however, noted that the incident happened when she was invited by the Pastor for settlement of issues she is having with the Pastor’s wife.

The Rivers State Police Command, have launched an investigation, into the matter.

Spokesperson of the command, SP Nnamdi Omoni said the investigation followed a petition by the human rights.
