The mother, Mr Oyeyemi said, had initially planned to hush up the crime because she did not want to offend her pastor but changed her mind when her daughter continued to bleed since the rape.

She then lodged a complaint at the Agbado police divisional headquarters.

The victim, currently recuperating in a hospital, told the police that the pastor deflowered her.

The mother reported being away from home to seek medical treatment when her daughter went to church, but the pastor lured her into his room and forcefully had carnal knowledge of her.

This came days after another randy pastor and a self-acclaimed prophet, Enoch Sule, reportedly impregnated two teenage sisters during prayer sessions atop mountain in Kaduna state.
