Akwa - A pastor with the Jesus Miracle Ministries, Awka, Anambra State, Ekene Adaoji, has been declared wanted for allegedly raping a 13-year-old boy to cure homosexuality, Punch reports.

It was gathered that the pastor was told by a traditionalist that his homosexual habit would be cured if he slept with a male teenager.

Recounting his ordeal, Abuchi said the incident took place after a vigil service.

The teenager, who hails from Ebonyi State said, “The pastor approached me after the vigil and asked me to stay back.

“I told the pastor that I wanted to go home since the church activities had ended.

“The pastor told me to wait till dawn and when I insisted that I must go, the pastor applied a substance on my eyes which made me to sleep.

“When I woke up, I noticed that my trousers were torn, and my anus was damp.

A relative of the victim, Ngozi, said the family was not aware that Abuchi went to the church that night according to Daily Post.

She said after Abuchi told them about what happened, they rushed to the church only to discover that the pastor had fled.

The Anambra State Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Nkiru Nwode, said the police had launched a manhunt for the pastor.
