A married pastor has been arrested following the death of his lover while trying to abort their baby in Kaduna state.
The Plateau state born pastor identified as Gideon Garba, was posted to a church in Kaduna state where he met and started dating the daughter of a senior pastor in the church identified as Stella.
Stella who was a second year Ordinary National Diploma (OND) student of the Nuhu Bamalli Polytechnic, Kaduna, had gone to have an abortion following an arrangement made by Garba with a ‘friend who works in a hospital’.
The ‘friend’ had turned out to be a quack who gave Stella some drugs and some locally made concoction, to flush out the pregnancy which was already in its third month. Stella reportedly bled profusely after ingesting the drugs, she was rushed to the hospital by her parents, where the doctors confirmed she had tried to terminate a pregnancy and went on to carry out an evacuation of her womb.
Stella reportedly confessed to her parents that she had been impregnated by pastor Garba, and confirmed he had taken her to the quack doctor who gave her the drugs.
Pastor Garba and his friend were arrested after Stella’s parents reported the situation to the police.
