The teenage female student caught February, 11 with a gun in Community Secodary School, Ikot Ewa Local Government Area of Cross River State, has confessed to belonging to a cult – Sky Queen Confraternity, and having an affair with a married man.
The student on Thursday, February 11, took a gun to school after her teacher asked her to cut her tainted hair. She was paraded on Friday, at the police headquarters in Calabar with her boyfriend.
According to the Cross River police commissioner, Sikiru Akande, the police discovered from investigation that the girl was taking the locally made double barrel pistol to a blacksmith. Mr Akande also said that investigation was ongoing to unravel the mystery around the ownership of the gun, adding that a suspect, Okon Effiong, has been arrested.
“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,” she said.
Her boyfriend, Mr Effiong, said he has been intimate with her since August 2020. “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,” he said.
