A 14 year old girl (names witheld) has attemptd suicide by drinking a mixture of sniper and local dry gin after her parents found out she was pregnant and demanded she showed them the man responsible
In their quest to know who impregnated her, the teenager’s parents asked her who was responsible and later forced her to the Kubwa General Hospital where she was confirmed to be pregnant.
The parents, on receiving the result, insisted that their daughter must point out the man responsible.
Out of the believe that she had disappointed them, Mercy attempted suicide.
It was gathered that the day she was to take the parents to Benson, the parents waited in vain.
Whilst they were waiting for her in the sitting room to dress up, she had consumed a poisonous substance in her room.
After waiting for so long, her parents went into the room where they saw her lying unconscious and fuming from the mouth with a container of the poisonous substance by her side.
She was however rushed to the Kubwa General Hospital (where her pregnancy test was earlier carried out).
The girl, a secondary school student, is currently receiving treatment.
When contacted on Monday, the Kubwa Divisional Police Officer, DPO, Chief Superintendent Nurrudeen Sabo, told Daily Post reporter, “The suspect is on the run but efforts are being made to apprehend him.
“His name is Benson and he had been involved in a sexual relationship with the teenager who is currently in the hospital.
“He resides around Channel 8 in Kubwa and our men are at alert.”
Meanwhile, a source at the hospital disclosed to our correspondent that the girl drank a mixture of sniper (insecticide) and local dry gin, popularly referred to as ‘ogogoro’.
“We are doing all we can to revive her as she is responding to treatment,” the source noted.
