The latest update on the Nigerian secondary school girl who was arrested with a gun with an intention to shoot her teacher is that she actually got the said gun from her boyfriend who’s a married man with 6 kids.
Recall that, Ghbase.com shared this story here on our blog and reported that, the reason why she was so angry that she wanted to end the life of her teacher was because he asked her to cut her coloured hair.
A new update on this story is that, the girl has confirmed that she’s a cultist and dating one Okon Effingham who is married with 6 kids and he’s also been arrested by the police.
A report on Yabaleftonline.ng adds that after her arrest, the police discovered she was taking the locally made double barrel pistol to a blacksmith. She told journalists on Friday, Feb 19, while being paraded that her boyfriend, who she has been intimate with since August 2020, is the owner of the gun.
She went on to add that the man helps her with a number of things but isn’t responsible for paying her school fees.
She further stated that her mother allows the man sleep in her room.
Speaking at the Police Command Headquarters, Diamond Hill, Calabar, when she was paraded alongside her boyfriend who owns the locally made pistol and 11 others for various crimes, she said:
“I am a member of Sky Queen Confraternity, I am just an ordinary member, I don’t hold any position in the group, I have known the owner of the gun who is my man-friend since last year, he sleeps with me and supports me with little things, but he is not the one paying my school fees.
“My mother knows about him because he visits me at our house and sometimes he sleeps over at my place because I have my own room, then in the morning he goes back to his own house.”
The boyfriend to the schoolgirl, Okon Effiong said while being paraded also said;
“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.”
Briefing Journalists on Friday, Cross River Commissioner of police, Sikiru Akande, said that investigation was ongoing to unravel the mystery surrounding the ownership of the gun, adding that Okon Effiong has been arrested and more details would be made known soon.
The Police Boss also called on parents and guardian to cultivate the habit of getting closer to their children and wards to know what they do and who they mingle with.
