A 14-year-old girl allegedly attempted suicide after she was impregnated by her boyfriend in Byazhin across, Kubwa, Abuja.
The girl, who is a student, a source said, attempted suicide when her parents asked her to tell them who impregnated her.
City News reliably gathered that the girl has succeeded in hiding the pregnancy from the parents for a while until they became suspicious.
The source said the girl was later taken to the hospital where she was confirmed pregnant.
The source added that the parents, who became angry on receiving the result of the pregnancy test, insisted the daughter must produce the man behind the act.
“The day she was to take the parents to the man that impregnated her, the parents were waiting for her in the sitting room to dress up, not knowing she was busy drinking the poisonous substance in her room,” the source said.
City News learnt that the parents became disturbed when she did not appear on time and went to her room where they saw her lying unconscious and fuming from the mouth with the container of the poisonous substance by her side.
She was rushed to the Kubwa General Hospital where she is currently receiving treatment.
Confirming the incident, the Kubwa Divisional Police Officer (DPO), Chief Superintendent Nuruddeen Sabo, said, “The suspect, whose name was given as Benson and staying around Channel 8, is presently at large, but we are making efforts to arrest him.”
