“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

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 rape, maybe with the possible exception of murder.
