Operatives of the Rivers State Police Command are currently investigating one Pastor Tony Daniel of Jesus Alive Word Refiners International Church, Port Harcourt, accused of sexually assaulting a 20-year-old lady.


The Centre For Basic Rights Protection And Accountability Campaign, a human rights and advocacy group, who made this disclosure said the alleged victim reported the incident to them.


According to the young lady, a choir mistress and a female church member held her while Pastor Daniel raped her violently.


The victim also alleged that the pastor gave her some substance suspected to be ‘juju’ after the incident to swear that she will not tell anybody.


She said the incident happened when she was invited by the Pastor for settlement of issues she is having with the Pastor’s wife.

Spokesperson of the command, SP Nnamdi Omoni said the investigation followed a petition by the human rights.

A member of the group, Barrister Festus Bonwin said they wrote the petition to demand for an investigation into the allegation made against the Pastor.


Bonwin also said the group is also asking for adequate Police protection for the alleged victim.


Meanwhile, Wazobia 94.1 FM News had reported on March 19, 2020 last year that Pastor Daniel was detained at Azikiwe Divisional Police headquarters following a complaint by one Mr Ndidi Austin who alleged he caught the Pastor with his wife in a hotel.
