The popular script interpreter told the News Agency of Nigeria in an interview that contrary to a story that she did not tell her mother about the pregnancy, she was not even aware of her situation.
“Though a boy used diabolic means and sexually abused me; I was not aware, I could not tell exactly how it happened.
“I was not aware that I was pregnant then; I was so tiny.
“We were playing games in the school; the type that the instructor or referee will say ‘number one’ and pupils with number 1 would run and collect something.
“It was during the game that a fellow pupil insulted me that my tummy was like a breadfruit; I was angered and beat her up,” she said.
She explained that the lesson teacher then asked them to go home and bring their parents.
The actress said that she was a young innocent girl who could not tell lies to the mother or against the mother.
“When I got home, I told my mother what led to the fight; she then asked me to raise up my dress; I did and after examination, she said that I was pregnant.
“When she said, ‘do you know that you are pregnant,’ I fainted; any other story aside this is not true,’’ Edochie said.
