Success Adegor, the primary three pupil, hitherto of Okotie-Eboh Primary School 1, Sapele, who came into prominence after the video of her in the school uniform insisting on attending class at the risk of being flogged for not paying school fees went viral, survived two evil plots against her by her parents, Mr and Mrs. Godwin Adegor.

This was disclosed by the family patriarch himself, a father-of-three.

According to Mr. Adegor, his wife was miffed by Success’ pregnancy and the situation drove her to suicide as she made an attempt on her own life.

“When she was pregnant with Success, she decided to drink ‘Angle 90’ (a poisonous substance). She said she wanted to die. I convinced her that rather than kill yourself, have the baby so that you could sell it for N500,000. But she said she wouldn’t sell her baby,” the Okada rider told

Since the video went viral, the Adegors have found fame and succour leading into Success receiving two scholarships, one from Sapele Local Government Area Chairman, Chief Eugene Inoaghan, and the other from Popular social media celebrity, Mr Jollof, who registered her at a private nursery school paid for two terms starting from third term, promising to fund her education up to university level.
