When Pastor Kalu of The Apostolic Church was preaching on Sunday, little did he know that that night was going to be a terrible one for him and his family.

After Sunday’s service, they went home and when night fell, it was time to sleep.

As if the pastor had the premonition that men of the underworld were coming, he was already praying when the hoodlums stormed his residence at Edda community in Afikpo South local government area of Ebonyi State.

But the miscreants defiled the prayers, busted in, ‎raped the pastor's wife and ransacked their home before robbing them of N21,000.

The robbers arrived at 2am on Monday morning and forced him to lie face down.

After he was manhandled by the robbers, it was gathered that they also forced him to take them to where he kept his money, and when they got to his room, they collected the sum of N16, 000 from him after which he was locked in.

Thereafter, they stormed the pastor's wife's room, woke her up at gun point and forced her to remove her night wear.

But when she tried to resist them, she was slapped and overpowered. The sum of N5,000 was also taken from her purse after she was raped.

The incident was confirmed by the Ebonyi State Police Command Spokesperson, ASP Loveth Odah, but she declined to make further comments.
