A pastor with Living Faith Church, AKA Winners Chapel, identified as Solomon Diya has fled after physically abusing his 17-year-old house help.
SaharaReporters reported that Solomon attacked his house help by hitting her head multiple times after he found her drinking garri with a tin of milk.
A member of the church who spoke anonymously said the pastor and his wife are known to abuse the teenage girl.
A Warri based human rights activist Israel joe condemned this action. “Pastor Solomon Diya has allegedly made attempt on the life of his home help on Tuesday, April 5. The issue was reported and we directed that the girl be rushed to the hospital,” Israel Joe said, according to SaharaReporters.
“The suspect has been invited by the police in Orerokpe but he’s invading arrest and if by Monday (April 11) he refused to turn himself up to the police, we shall obtain a warrant of arrest on him. When did using a tin of milk to drink garri constitute an offence of attempting to kill her?
“Can the pastor treat his own children that way if they also use his tin of milk? The mother of the girl arrived from Imo State today and we shall all ventilate our grievances accordingly. All the neighbours have complained how the pastor and his wife keep maltreating this girl. It will happen no more,” he said.
