Gomoa Police are hunting for a self-styled pastor of Hour of Grace Chapel International in Gomoa Budumburam in the Central Region for allegedly defiling a 13-year-old girl.
Narrating her traumatic experience to Adom News’ Kofi Adjei, the girl (name withheld) said the alleged rapist, Rev. Samuel Osei lured her to accompany him to church and on their way dragged her into an uncompleted house and forcibly had sex with her.
As if that was not enough, the victim said Rev. Samuel Osei held her in the uncompleted house for two days and later continued the act in a colleague pastor’s room.
“The pastor called me to accompany him to church and on our way, he pulled a handkerchief covered my mouth and took me to an uncompleted building and forcibly had sex with me and later locked me in the uncompleted room.
“The pastor continued the act the next day by taking me to a colleague pastor’s room and had countless bouts of sex with me and warned me not to narrate my ordeal to anyone” she alleged.
Listen to the victim
Mother of the victim, Rebecca Anapor said her daughter went missing for three days so she reported the matter to the police.
“Last week Sunday, my daughter went out and never returned, I was worried so I reported the matter at the police station.
“On our way from the police station we met Rev. Osei who is much known to the family and he prophesied to me that my daughter will come home after 2 days so I shouldn’t worry, a “prophesy” I believed.
Listen to the victim’s mother
Madam Rebecca said what shocked her was that the pastor who had kidnapped the girl was the same person who was with them looking for her missing daughter.
“This pastor helped us to search for my daughter and I was very shocked because he is a family friend but unfortunately we found my daughter after 2 days,” he said.
She said the pastor who was sensing danger took to his heels and has since not been found.
