Girl Who Was Impregnated, Kept In Bondage, Finally Rescued

A teenage girl who recently gave birth has been rescued from "bondage" in Akwa Ibom state following a petition by a well meaning citizen over her well-being and that of the baby.

On Friday, the president of Norms Restoration Movement, Comr. David John received a distress call from a concerned citizen in Ikot Ekpene LGA to rescue a young 17 year old girl identified as Ms. Unyime David Udo, a native of Ikot Akpa Ayara in Ikono LGA, who was impregnated and subsequently gave birth to a baby girl but was kept under duress and undue influence by one Prince Akan Eyo of Ikot Ekpene LGA.

On arriving there, the president noted with utter despair the inhumane condition which the mother and child were, efforts were made by the president to rescue the girl but the man insisted he won't release the girl.

The President got information about the whereabouts of the girl's parents and tracked down the father at Ikot Akpa Ayara village in Ikono LGA, who claimed that the girl was with the husband but on seeing pictures of the state in which his daughter lived, he broke down and wept.

The Village Head of Ikot Akpa Ayara in Ikono LGA, Barr. Ndarake mandated the father to go back with the president to get his daughter.

The girl was rescued and talks are underway to ensure comfortable living conditions for the mother and child.
