Prophet Allegelly Rapes 13-year Old Child
The General Overseer and Head of Messiah House of Prayer, Amaimo Umuofo
Amauda in Ikeduru L.G.A. of Imo State Prophet Mike Osuji, has been
arrested by the Imo State Police for allegedly raping a 13-year old girl.
This was sequel to a petition written to the Owerri Police Area Command by
the lawyer to the father of the alleged raped victim.
In a telephone interview, the minor's father who is a widower alleged that
the prophet severally raped his daughter between the year 2010 and 2013
without his knowledge.
'Between 2010 and 2013, I was sick and a friend of mine introduced me to
Prophet Mike Osuji. Because of my sickness, I lost my job as a luxurious
bus driver and also my accommodation in Naze Owerri. Consequently, the
prophet offered me accommodation in his house which he also uses as
church. I moved in with my two little daughters. Because of my condition
then, I did not know that the prophet was taking advantage of my
predicament to defile one of my daughters. One of the days, his wife
caught him trying to abuse my daughter and he sent his wife packing.
Because of that, I sent my children away but the prophet threatened me
saying that I must bring my children back to the church. It was when my
daughters went out of the prophet's custody that they could narrate their
ordeal to me. Ironically, the prophet went to the police recently to
report that I arranged to kidnap my daughters from his house….'.
Confirming the report, counsel to the girl's father, Barr. Emperor Iwuala
added that the said prophet is also suspected of buying stolen vehicles.
He also commended the police on the effective way they are handling the
Attempt to reach the prophet on his mobile phone proved abortive as his
line was not reachable.
When the suspect's prayer house was also visited, a worshipper in the
place who spoke on condition of anonymity confirmed that the prophet was
arrested by the police and was still in police custody.
