A man has been arrested for raping a 5-year-old girl inside a Redeemed Christian Church of God (Redemption Pavilion) in Lagos state.
The police at MAN Centre Division led by CSP Tanaruno Folashade arrested the church worker identified as, Saviour Udoh, for the despicable act.
The incident happened at the church in Oshifila Street, Anifowoshe in Ikeja, Lagos where the mother of the victim took her for prayer and protection.
It was gathered that the mother of the victim took her to the church and went to work with the intention that she will be safe there before she will take her back home.
However, when the mother came to pick the victim, she met Udoh with the victim where they were sleeping and covered themselves with clothes which they used during the romp.
When the mother took the 5-year old victim home, she was busy putting her hand inside her private part because of the sperm drifting from it. The mother then suspected her action and checked her private part only to discover that she had been defiled. She asked her who did it and the victim mentioned Udoh.
The matter was reported to the MAN Centre Police Station and Udoh was arrested. The matter was later transferred to the Gender Section of the State Command for further investigations.
