She said she became pregnant after sleeping with so many men and would not actually know who among them that impregnated her back in her community.
Goodness said when she told one of them that slept with her and he denied, she became so confused because they were many, hence she can tell her baby’s daddy. She said she was taken to a church where she stayed and delivered the baby girl.
“If I tell you that I knew the father of the baby, I am lying because I slept with many men and they were countless before I discovered that I was pregnant,” she said. It was reported that Goodness was rescued by police on suspicion of being a human trafficking victim after she delivered her baby in a church.
There was an alleged plan to sell the baby. The police also arrested the owner of the church, a female pastor, Pemi Udoh for her alleged role in human trafficking.
