The PUNCH reports that a renowned cleric and Founder of Victory Revival Fasting & Prayer Ministry, in Warri, Delta State, Bishop Elijah Orhonigbe, has been granted bail.

The cleric was in June remanded at the Warri correctional centre by a Magistrates’ Court over rape allegations.

Bishop Orhonigbe was arrested by operatives of the Delta State Police Command following an accusation of rape by a 19-year-old girl (name withheld) and has since been in custody.

However, a Delta State High Court sitting in Warri, on Wednesday granted bail to the accused cleric.

The court, which was presided over by Hon. Justice A.O Akpovi granted him bail in suit No W/ 25SB/ 2020.

Justice Akpovi ordered the cleric to provide two sureties, who will pay N1m each as part of the requirements for his bail.

The court also emphasised that one of the sureties must be an owner of a landed property within Delta South or Central Senatorial Districts while the other must be a civil servant above Level 12.

According to the Court, the bail conditions must be perfected before the Assistant Director of Court with the sureties swearing to an affidavit of means as well as providing three passport photographs each and a means of identification.

The Court further held that the applicant must sign an attendance register before the ADC on the last working day of every month during the pendency of the information filed in suit No W/28c/ 2020.
