Actress Kate Henshaw has reacted to the recent arrest of the Former Commissioner of Information and Special Adviser to Cross Rivers state governor Ben Ayade on Biodiversity, Edet Okon Asim, over allegations of defiling an underaged girl for about three years in Calabar.
According to reports, the girl who was about 12 when the defilement started was “forced” to aborting two pregnancies for Mr. Asim with consent of her mother, Mrs Stella, who was at the time a mistress to the former commissioner.
Asim reportedly got the girl pregnant twice and connived with the mother of the girl to abort the babies. Unfortunately, the girl’s uterus was punctured while a third abortion was being carried out.
A source who pleaded anonymity, told Vanguard that Mrs. Stella was married to a popular Calabar based pastor who was a good friend of Asim and bore two children for the deceased man of God.
“Since the death of the pastor, Mr. Asim has been “helping” the family and is their benefactor for years now. Immediately the girl started maturing, he took interest and started sleeping with both of them (daughter and mother). It was learnt that the victim, who is a student of the Federal Government Girls College, Calabar was reportedly cautioned by her mother not to divulge any information while collaborating with the randy ex -mayor” the source said
However, one of her teachers got wind of the failed third abortion and told people on a whatsapp group she was a member of. The police was alerted and the mother of the victim and the suspect were immediately arrested.
