“Yes what you heard is true, we were called this morning to be notified of the incident, however, we will not be able to give you all the details you require now”, said one of them who pleaded anonymity.

“Our pastor who is in charge of this place is not available now, he stayed awake all through the night that this thing happened and he is down now.”

“However the matter has been reported to the police and the girls have been taken to hospital for treatment,” he said.

The Nation Newspaper reports that Police spokesman, Loveth Odah, said she was yet to be briefed about the incident at the time of filling the report.
