A banker has been arrested in connection to allegations of drugging, raping and impregnating a 13 year old orphan in SSS quaters Jikwoyi, Abuja.
According to reports, the teenager is a maid to an Abuja based pastor and was drugged,raped and impregnated by the banker who is the in law of the pastor.
Upon investigation, the teen explained how ‘Uncle Chidi gave her something to drink only for her to sleep off and wake up with blood all over her privates.
A family member explained that the teenager is an orphan who was left in his care but was given to the pastor and his wife as a maid.
“I was approached by a member of my church that the pastor’s wife needed someone to help her around the house. He asked me to give them my niece and promised to take care of her.
“I released her to the pastor and his family took care of her as they promised. But Chidi (Agu), who is the pastor’s wife’s brother, usually visited them. He started to take advantage of her whenever they travelled.
“The girl told me that each time Chidi gave her a drink, she would sleep off. By the time she woke up, she would see blood all over her private parts. She said she could not explain what happened to her until it happened the second time
“She said when she asked Chidi if he did it, he threatened to deal with her if she told anyone. She said he also threatened to kill me and her. The girl was in fear and could not speak out. She is always indoors; they don’t allow her to go out.
“This continued until she became pregnant. The girl said he even attempted to abort for her by giving her drugs which she refused to take.”
Upon a meeting with the pastor’s family, the victim recounted the story and the banker didn’t deny the allegations
Adding that family promised to send money into his bank account for her upkeep, he explained:
“But I refused the proposal. I told them that was not the way I took her to their house. I thought I could handle it alone, but when I saw their plan, I decided to bring in some more family members.
“We tried to reach some terms of settlements, but the pastor has refused to sign the agreement. He said the thing did not happen in his house and he cannot be a party to it. His wife also said she did not want anything that will tarnish their reputation. Meanwhile, I did not hand over the girl to Chidi. It was the pastor and his wife that took her from me,”
Meanwhile, the FCT Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Anjuguri Manzah, said:
“It appeared like there was an agreement between the two parties and the police were brought in after the arrangement failed. Investigation is ongoing and we will ensure that the proper thing is done.”
