A 17-year-old female student at Community Secondary School, Ikot Ewa, Akpabuyo Local Government Area, Cross River State, who dashed into her school with a gun, has admitted to being a member of the Sky Queens Confraternity cult group.
The girl took a gun to school on February 11, because her teacher instructed her to cut off her tainted hair.
She was paraded with her boyfriend at the police headquarters in Calabar on Friday. Eleven other perpetrators were also paraded.
Cross River Police Commissioner Sikiru Akande has said that the police had learned from the interrogation that the girl was bringing the double-barrel gun to a certain blacksmith.
Before the school principal seized it, the schoolgirl claimed to have been taking the weapon to a blacksmith.
“I am a member of Sky Queen Confraternity, I am just an ordinary member, I don’t hold any position in the group, I have known the owner of the gun who is my man-friend since last year, he sleeps with me and supports me with little things, but he is not the one paying my school fees,” she said.
“My mother knows about him because he visits me at our house and sometimes he sleeps over at my place because I have my own room then in the morning he goes back to his own house.”
Her boyfriend Mr Effiong said he has been intimate with her since August 2020.
“I am a married man with six children, I did not give her the gun, she took it herself where I kept it under the bed,” he said.
“I started sleeping with her August last year, her mother knows me, I have been doing small something (sic) on her head. They know she is my wife.”
