Mr. Edet Okon Asim, Gov. Ben Ayade’s Special Adviser on Biodiversity is in hot soup following claim that he impregnated 15-year old daughter of his lover.
Asim’s lover is reportedly his late pastor friend widow, a mother of two, while the victim, name under wrap, is said to be a student of the Federal Government Girls College, Calabar.
The governor’s aide was said to have been arrested on account of impregnating his victim multiple times and forcing her to abort the pregnancies and damaging her womb in the process.
Quoting Cross River online, a new medium familiar with the incident:
“A former local government chairman of Calabar Municipal and Special Adviser to Governor Ben Ayade on Biodiversity, Mr. Edet Okon Asim, is currently in police custody for continuously defiling an under-aged girl (names withheld) for a period spanning about three years. “The girl is said to have been coerced into aborting two pregnancies for Mr. Asim with consent from her mother and has damaged her uterus while carrying out a third abortion earlier this year before the matter became public. Stella has been seeing Mr. Asim and kept calling him, her “Destiny Saver.”
“The relationship has been going on for years and when her daughter began developing feminine features, Asim is said to have taken interest and she often visited the former council boss for holidays and in the company of her mother where they most times, stay for lengthy number of days. The victims’ mother is said to have kept warning her against opening up and collaborated with the suspect in the serial abuse.
“The victim got pregnant twice and aborted with the help of her mother and Mr. Asim who always bore the financial brunt. And after the third abortion which is said to have been carried out by a quack, her womb became perforated.”
