She is 17-year old. She is an SS2 student. She was caught with a pistol. They say she confessed to being a cultist of Sky Queens group. They say she revealed her lover is a 38 years old father of six and a husband of two mothers. His name is Okon Effiong
Promise Idorenyin is her name. She is a student of Community Secondary School, Ikot Ewa, in Akpabuyo Local Government Area of Cross Rivers State. She has been in the news in the past few day for the wrong reasons.
Each time, her name is pronounced "PROMISE" my heart bleeds. I keep wondering what would be going on in the mind or heart of her mother at the moment...whether living or dead. Cry oh mother!!!
When you name your child PROMISE you hopefully prayed he or she grows to become great and a huge promise to your family, community, state and country.
My heart bleeds because this girl seems to be under immense torture. She seems hypnotized. She may have been passing through unimaginable torment at this very tender age.
How can a 17-year old SS2 student fall in love with a 38-year old father of six and husband of two wives? The man even confirmed to the police that he is Promise's lover. Oh my God!!!
The man's first child is almost Promise's agemate. Isn't something wrong with the man just as the girl is not free to control herself?
I want to believe that aside the fact that Promise may have been a victim of poor parental upbringing, she equally is a victim of several abuses.
This world is indeed wicked....otherwise how can a 17-year old girl be caught with a pistol and already drunk. And during investigation it was alleged that she said, she wanted to kill the Vice Principal of her school over the scolding she received for indecent dressing and acts.
There is more to this than meets the eyes. How did she get the pistol? Who gave her the alcohol she took on the day she was caught? How long has she been taking or drinking alcohol? Who introduced her to alcohol, sex and gun? How did she meet her 38-year old lover?
I cry for this little girl who obviously seems to be under a spell by some wicked persons including Okon Effiong who want to waste this girl.
The State Governor should come to the rescue of Promise. Your Excellency, kindly rehabilitate this girl and give her a brighter and better future. Give her hope and a new beginning. Save her from the hands of those planning to destroy her by using her to achieve their nefarious and selfish intensions.
Only God knows how many Promises are out there languishing in the hands of evildoers.
