Pastor Justice Aniele has been sentenced to life imprisonment for raping a 14 year old girl in Amaji Community, Omuma Local Government Area, Rivers State, Nigeria.
Report has it that, Aniele raped the 14 year old orphan who was under his care and got her pregnant.
The presiding High Court Judge, Justice Augusta Kingsley-Chuku, in her judgment, found the accused guilty of taking advantage of the minor and having unlawful sexual intercourse with her, which resulted in the birth of a baby boy who later died.
Speaking to Journalists, a Lawyer for FIDA, Chisom Anyalebechi, expressed happiness that the accused was convicted for the crime.
The judgment will serve as a deterrent to others because many people are getting away with it and victims and their families are sometimes complicit, she said.
