He then lured the teenager into an uncompleted building in the Ipamesan, Sango area of the state, armed with anointing oil and other items and while pretending to pray for her, forcefully stripped her naked and had carnal knowledge of her.

After raping the girl, he allegedly warned her against telling anyone or she would pay with her life but the girl later reported the matter to the police at the Sango Division, leading to the arrest of the pastor.
