A 16-year-old girl, Alice Arowolo, Monday, told the Federal High Court, Osogbo, how she was allegedly raped by Pastor Adeyemo Samuel, for many times.
Led in evidence by the National Agency for Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP) prosecution Counsel, Mrs Zarowa Caroline,the young girl narrated how she was taken to the defendant by her mother.
According to the victim, my mother took me to Pastor Adeyemo Samuel when she was traveling. After two weeks that I got to the house of Pastor, she called me and told me that he had a dream.
Pastor took me inside and asked me to put off my clothes. When I complied, he asked me to read Psalm 34. I wanted to go out after reading the Bible verse, but Pastor did not let me go.
He later told me that he saw in his dream that Im a glorious child. He later asked me to sleep on his bed. I refused. I asked him was that the agreement you had with my mother? I was weeping and begging him. He had intercourse with me. He dis-virgin me.
When I saw blood, I started weeping. He gave me a sachet of tablet with postinor written on it.
Attempt to tender the drug as exhibit was objected to by Counsel to the defendant, Chief AbduSalam AbduFatai, who stated that the drug was not connected to his client. He told the court that his client knew nothing about the drug.
But, the prosecutor said the drug is relevant to the case. She hinted that the defendant has admitted in his statement that he gave the victim drug.
Counsel to the defendant insisted that the drug should not be admitted as exhibit, maintaining that the purported drug was manufactured when the defendant was in detention.
Justice Emmanuel Ayoola, admitted the drug and marked it exhibit A, noting that the objection was not enough to persuade the court not to admit the drug as exhibit.
The victim further revealed that the defendant usually have intercourse with her about four times in a week, saying he usually give me postinor after every sex.
He slept with me one day. When I was going to school the following day, he said he didnt have money to give me. I fainted in school and my teachers took me to the office.
I didnt want to tell my teacher when they asked me because the Pastor has told me that I will run mad if I tell anybody. I didnt tell my mother when she came to check me as well. My teachers forced me and I told them. They thereafter took me to NAPTIP.
