Nigerian Pastor sentenced to life imprisonment for raping, impregnating teenager

175

An High Court sitting in Iyanya, Abuja has sentenced Stephen Kalu, 29, a pastor of Adoration Ministry, Karshi in Abuja, to life imprisonment for raping a 17-year-old girl.

Kalu was arraigned in October 2019 by the police on a two-count charge of rape.

The convict had intercourse with a girl on October 28, 2018 at his residence in Karshi, without her consent.

The offence was contrary to section 31 (1) of the Child’s Right Act and punishable under 31 (2) of the same Act, NAN reports.

Justice Peter Kekemeke determined that the prosecutor, Donatus Abah proved his case beyond reasonable doubt.

The Judge said the defendant admitted sleeping with the girl several times, resulting in a pregnancy and the birth of a baby girl.

Justice Kekemeke noted that though the defendant promised to marry the victim, the offence had been committed and the law must take its course.

Kekemeke ruled that count two was not relevant and convicted the defendant on count one, which contravened section 31 (1) of the Child’s Right Act.

He said the society, especially the division of the court, has seen several cases of rape.

Kekemeke added that due to the pathetic situation, the system must be expunged of rapists and kids protected.
