“Anyways I was molested in Tallahassee, Florida by a black man this morning at 5:30 on Richview and Park Ave.

“The man offered to give me a ride to find someplace to sleep and recollect my belongings from a church I refuged to a couple days back to escape unjust living conditions," she said

Meanwhile, it was earlier reported that Pastor Enoch Adeboye, the general overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) condemned the criminal acts of molestation that have recently become rampant in the country.

It was gathered that the Nigerian cleric during a live broadcast on Dove Television on Sunday, June 14, said every form of punishment that could be given to a rapist, cannot be considered too severe.

Speaking in the message that was shared on the church's social media platform, Pastor Adeboye said there is hardly any crime more grievous than that of sexual abuse, maybe with the possible exception of murder.

He said: "There is no pain that I know of that can compare to the pain of parents whose daughter has been abused sexually. The girl that was abused and killed in Benin, happens to be one of my daughters and I am telling you that I feel the pain seriously.

“Both myself and my prayer warriors will not rest in prayers until the perpetrators of this evil are brought to justice. I will cry to my God to fish them all out. As much as I hate the death sentence, I think every form of punishment that will be given to a rapist cannot be considered too severe."
