Abraham Sunday, who claims to be a pastor, was said to have harboured an unnamed 16-year-old at a secret location, where he had sex with her for three days. Sunday, a family friend of the victim’s family, took the girl to Adalemo Estate, along Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway, for spiritual healing. Sunday’s neighbours at the house he kept the girl suspected a foul play and informed a not-for-profit child protective organisation, which ensured Sunday was arrested. Medical tests conducted on the girl purportedly showed she had sex with the said pastor during the three days. But, the victim’s mother reportedly rejected Sunday’s prosecution. She was said to have shown sympathy that Sunday has a three-month-old baby and that she wouldn’t want him jailed.
The matter has been taken up by the Lagos State Domestic and Sexual Violence Response Team and the Ministry of Women Affairs and Poverty Alleviation, DSVRT.
