A 16-year-old girl in Suleja, Niger State has revealed that her mother is in support of her affair with a neighbour in re­turn for gifts and money.
The girl (names with­held), disclosed this after her father, identified as Mr. Oduah Paul, 56, and a brick­layer, had asked her daugh­ter to pack her luggage out of the house.
“My mother had led me to go close to our neighbour because of the gifts and mon­ey she always get in return”, she alleged.
When contacted, Mr. Paul narrated that he had for long noticed his daugh­ter in an unusual romance with a next door neighbour and supported by his wife who never queried the rela­tionship.
“Lately, I have noticed her absence in the house most times when I returned from work and when I asked my wife, she would tell me that our next door neighbour is helping her out with her school home work.
“It continued till I sud­denly caught her showing my wife a set of new female un­derwears wrapped in a poly­ethylene transparent bag.
“I secretly remained in my position to enable me hear mother and daughter’s conversation. It dawned on me when I heard my wife asking her how much he gave her to give her (my wife)
“Immediately I came out, they were surprised because I arrived home so early due to the fact that there was no job available for the day.
“I met my daughter hold­ing the pack of undies in both hands, took the underwear, looked at them and enquired, mother and daughter were looking at me as if I have sud­denly turned to a television. For 10 minutes, none gave me an answer”.
The AUTHORITY on Saturday gathered from neighbours who had no­ticed the abnormal behaviour of a mother whose daughter takes pleasure in such act at her age.
A female corps member, who did not want her name mentioned said her mother suddenly ceased scolding her whenever she went wrong at the same time encourages her to continue with the re­lationship.
When the quarrel became high, neighbours gathered and pleaded to allow his wife go back to the house and set­tle it with both families pres­ence.
As at time of filing this re­port, the matter was still be­ing dragged between them, while the wife was outside with her luggage, probably waiting for the daughter’s boyfriend to decide her fate in which he was not present when the episode was going on.
