A fourteen-year-old girl Anita Haledu Ibrahim of Angwan Dorowa Gbuja, in Akwanga LGA of Nasarawa state, has committed suicide over an unwanted pregnancy.

Preliminary investigation revealed the deceased, a student of Government Science school Andaha, near Akwanga, took herbicide to kill herself.

It was gathered she was pregnant for her boyfriend whom she met in Andaha during the COVID-19 lockdown, who was introduced to her closest friend in the school.

When the guy discovered that Anita was pregnant, he sneaked out of the village to Abuja but Anita’s parents made efforts to contact him and he accepted responsibility, expressing willingness to marry her.

It was however, gathered that the lady committed suicide after her father, Haledu Ibrahim, discovered the pregnancy and beat her.
