An High Court sitting in Iyanya, Abuja has sentenced Stephen Kalu, 29, a pastor of Adoration Ministry, Karshi in Abuja, to life imprisonment for raping a 17-year-old girl.

The convict had intercourse with a girl on October 28, 2018 at his residence in Karshi, without her consent.

The offence was contrary to section 31 (1) of the Child’s Right Act and punishable under 31 (2) of the same Act, NAN reports.

Justice Peter Kekemeke determined that the prosecutor, Donatus Abah proved his case beyond reasonable doubt.

The Judge said the defendant admitted sleeping with the girl several times, resulting in a pregnancy and the birth of a baby girl.
