Anambra - A pastor from a new generation Pentecostal church is alleged to have raped a 13-year-old girl during a night vigil programme that was organised by the church, Pulse reported.

According to reports, the young girl has gone to the night vigil with her parents when the pastor lured her into a private room and raped her.
