According to PMNEWS:
A 67-year-old pastor and grandfather, Felix Adebayo, has been nabbed by operatives of the Edo State Police Command for allegedly defiling a 10-year-old girl in Ubiane community, Aviele, Etsako West LGA of the state.
The suspect, who was arrested last week Thursday, was paraded on Tuesday [Aug. 25] at the Command’s headquarters in Benin, alongside 35 other suspects arrested for various crimes.
The Command’s Public Relations Officer, DSP Stephen Onwochei, who paraded the suspects, said the detained cleric unlawfully had carnal knowledge of the little girl when she was sent to collect a mobile phone from his apartment. “He carried the child and started whatever he felt like doing,” Onwochei said.
However, Adebayo who claimed to be a pastor, confessed to his crime, but blamed the act on the handiwork of the “devil”. “I have a wife. I do not know what happened that led me to insert my hand in her private part. It is the devil,” he said.
