The Akwa Ibom State Police Command has arrested a suspect, identified as Sunday Sampson for allegedly impregnating a teenage girl and procuring an abortion for her, which led to her death.
The command’s spokesman, Odiko MacDon, disclosed this in a statement issued to newsmen in Uyo.
Mr. MacDon said: “One Sunday George Sampson has been arrested by the Nsit Ubium division of the Akwa Ibom State Police Command. The suspect impregnated a 13-year- old girl- child and secretly procured an abortion for her and she died in the process.
