The founder of one Holy Trinity Healing Ministry, Arinze Obiwenite, has been arrested for allegedly defiling his 12-year-old daughter.
Mrs. Ify Obinabo, the state Commissioner for Women and Social Welfare, in Anambra confirmed the development to newsmen on Saturday.
The commissioner noted that Obiwenite’s residence at Abacha town in Idemili North Local Government Area was raided on Monday following a tip-off.
Obinabo said she visited the traditional ruler of the Abacha community, Igwe Nwabunwanne Odiegwu, to notify him of the raid before taking action.
She said that during the visit, Igwe Odiegwu revealed that the accused, Obiwenite, presented himself as a Christian who helped people solve their spiritual problems without knowing that he had other motives.
The Commissioner said they raided Obiwenite’s residence and rescued the 12-year-old girl and her two siblings, who had been taken to the hospital for medical examination and treatment.
She assured that the children would get justice and a conducive environment for growth and proper care.
