According to Daily Trust, the cleric who is a father of three children had reportedly taken the victim to his house on the pretext of praying for her, only to end up raping her. The victim, a senior secondary one student of a government secondary school told the court that her in-law took her to a church at Information Drive for prayers. She stated that her in-law left her in the church around 6 pm and the prophet requested that she accompany him elsewhere to pray for somebody, which she did. The girl revealed that Thompson, however, took her to his house, gave her a black liquid substance to drink, and then raped her. The girl explained that the accused prevented her from leaving the house, adding that she later escaped because he forgot to lock the door and ran to a church.
She said that she saw ladies’ pants of different colors and pictures of women inside the house of the prophet, adding that she had been bleeding from her private parts following the incident.
After the statement of the victim, the trial judge, Justice Bassey Nkanang, adjourned the matter to August 1 2022, for the continuation of the trial.
