Pastor arrested in Abia for 'operating baby factory, illegal medical centre, raping women in his church'

The Abia State Police Command has arrested a pastor who operates an illegal medical centre and Baby Factory in his church.

Briefing newsmen on Monday, June 5th, at the State Police Headquarters, Umuahia, the Commissioner of Police, CP Adeleye Oyebade, who parade the pastor along with other suspect, disclosed that on May 24th, information was received that a storey building located at Faulks Road Aba, which doubles as a Church and Medical centre was converted to Baby Factory.

Based on this information, a team of Policemen attached to Ariaria Division led by the DPO stormed the premises where five pregnant young girls were rescued and one Christopher Adebanya Tochukwu, the Pastor of the Church and the operator of the clinic who earlier fled the scene was arrested.

Upon interrogation, one of the pregnant young girls alleged that she was raped by the so called pastor that morning, while another alleged that the pastor attempted to rape her if not for a broken piece of glass she used in self-defense.

However, another girl claimed that her two month old baby delivered therein was forcefully taken away from her by the pastor’s wife (now at large) and sold to an unknown person.

Another Imeabo Udo said a young man took her to the medical centre and promised to help her take care of her 2-year old baby. She said that when she got there, the toddler was taken from her and sold to a yet to be identified woman.

The three other victims Jane Ikechukwu, Blessing and Gift, said they were also taken to the same Clinic for antenatal care and were forced to stay there for more than one month.

“The pastor (Tochukwu) was coming to rape us one after the other. It was while he was raping one of us, that the girl fought him and wounded him with a broken glass. It was the girl that escaped through the window and alerted the Police,” blessing said.

Tochukwu, who said he is a nurse, however, denied the rape allegations, stating that he was only helping them.
A two week old premature baby girl rescued at the scene has been taken to a motherless baby’s home for care and custody.
