She was paraded with one Okon Effiom Edet who also revealed that the teenager is his partner and has been sleeping with her since 2020.
It was more heartbreaking when the girl added that her mother is aware of her affairs with the man and he helps the family financially.

The story was also corroborated by Okon, who stressed that though he is married, the girl’s mother is aware of his relationship with her daughter.
” I am a married man with six children, I did not give her the gun, she took it herself where I kept it under the bed. I started sleeping with her August last year, her mother knows me, I have been doing small something on her head, they know she is my wife,”
However, help might be on the way for the girl as the Special Adviser to Governor Ben Ayade on Education, Castro Ezama claimed the government would ensure that the teenager is well rehabilitated.
