An alleged teenage sex worker in Ugep, Yakurr Local Government Area, Cross River State has been hospitalized after she attempted to abort her pregnancy at home.

The girl believed to be between age 14 and 15 (name withheld) from Ketabebe Ijom, Ugep, had on Saturday drank three sachets of hypo bleach mixed with kerosene and illicit gin to abort her weeks old pregnancy.

According to information made available to CrossRiverWatch by an eyewitness, “in less than no time, she started having running stomach, soon her stomach became swollen. Immediately she was rushed to an undisclosed hospital in Ugep where it is believed she’s recuperating.”

The unnamed teenager is said to be a sex worker at “Under the Cocoa” brothel which was recently sacked by the vigilante group set up by the Obol Lopon of Ugep.

According to her, “My friend advised me to drink three hypo, mixed with kerosene to abort my pregnancy, she also told me that it worked for her own pregnancy”.

She further disclosed that she heeded her friends’ advice because she had no money for proper abortion. As at the time of filling this report she was still in the undisclosed hospital.
