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 houseā€¦.'.

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.
