A fifteen year-old-girl, whose name has been given as Udoh Comfort, on Thursday, told a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, how her guardian, one Mr Francis Ekong, 40, forcefully slept with her three times and got her pregnant.

Comfort had come to the court with her 6-month-old baby from the pregnancy. She told the court that the man slept with her when his wife was not at home, adding that Ekong threatened to send her back to the village any day he saw her with any boy.

Upon mounting the witness box, narrated how she had confronted Ekong when she discovered that she was pregnant, only for the man to blatantly deny responsibility, alleging that she must have slept with one of the boys in their neighborhood.

She said it was at this point that somebody took her to the National Agency for Prohibition of Traffic in Person and Other Related Matters (NAPTIP). This led to the subsequent arrest and trial of her guardian and his wife.
