Men of Ogun State Police Command have arrested one Pastor Peter Taiwo of Christ Apostolic Bible church in Saje area of Abeokuta, the state capital, for defiling  a 16 - year old chorister of the church.

The police also arrested the pastor's wife,  Elizabeth Taiwo, for conniving with
her randy husband and facilitating the process that baited the chorister into the room where she was raped.

The Daily Crucible learnt that detectives from Adatan Divisional Police Headquarters swooped on the pastor and his wife after the victim had reported the incident at the Division on Friday.

The teenage girl had gone to the church for choir practice that fateful Friday ahead of today's (Sunday) service and while she was in the church, the pastor's wife called her out, telling her to go meet the pastor in his room as he wanted to send her on errand. 

But no sooner had she got into the room than the pastor's wife shut the door against her and locked it from outside, and premeditatedly, the pastor seized the girl and wrestled her onto the bed.

The girl told the police that the pastor overpowered her and then forcefully had sex with her afterwards. 

She also explained to the police that the pastor's wife later came in after her husband had satisfied himself and met her crying.

She claimed the pastor's wife did try to persuade to stop crying as she has been deemed a real woman by reason of the sexual encounter with the pastor, even as the pastor's wife then warned her against telling anybody about the experience lest she risks death. 

The Police  Public Relations Officer in Ogun State, Abimbola Oyeyemi, who is a Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) made this known to newsmen on Sunday, saying the Divisional Police Officer(DPO) for Adatan Division, Mr. Salaudeen 
Abiodun, a Superintendent of Police (SP), detailed detectives to the scene, where the pastor and his wife were apprehended. 

"The Dpo Adatan division, SP Salaudeen Abiodun, quickly detailed his detectives to the scene, where the randy pastor and his wife were promptly apprehended. 

"During interrogation, the couple  confessed to the crime but blamed the devil for it. They also pleaded for forgiveness from the victim. 

"The victim has been taken to  hospital by the police for medical treatment. 

"Meanwhile, the commissioner of police, CP Lanre Bankole, has ordered the transfer of the suspects to anti human trafficking and child labour unit of the state criminal investigation and intelligence department for further investigation, with the view to charge them to court as soon as investigation is concluded," Abimbola said.
