A prophet based in Kaduna, Enoch Sule, has been docked for raping and impregnating two sisters under the guise of taking them to mountain for prayer and fasting.
Sule, who is the General Overseer of Prayer Tabernacle Ministry, Kamurum Bajju, is charged by the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) with rape and was arraigned at a Magistrates’ Court in Kafanchan, Kaduna on Monday.
According to NSCDC prosecutor, Mr Marcus Audu, the infamous action of Prophet Sule was reported to the corps by the Salama Sexual Assault Referral Centre, Kafanchan on Aug.8.
Narrating how the Prophet put the two sisters in family way, Audu said Sule first deceived the 19 year older sister into accompanying to the mountain for prayer and fasting.
He said while on the mountain, the defendant instructed the girl to remove her cloth and pray naked as directed by the Holy Spirit.
According to him, Sule forcefully had sexual intercourse with the girl, which resulted in pregnancy.
The prosecutor added that a month later in April, Sule repeated the same trick on the girl’s 17-year-old younger sister and also get her pregnant.
The two sisters’ case against the prophet were filed and read out separately.

Kwasu directed the prosecutor to forward the case files to the State Director of Public Prosecution for legal advice.
He adjourned both cases until Sept.8 for further mention.
