"I met a girl yesterday in Port Harcourt, her name is Favour Chinecherem Echezulam from Imo state, Ikeduru LGA. Her aunty poured pepper water on her with strokes of cane all over her body.

My dear, you can see the rags as cloth she's putting on. Abeg, u people should help me post her so that any of her relatives can find her and take her back."

She wrote in a social media post:

“I went from standing in front of a judge as a juvenile to sitting beside Judge Baker-Carper. God has a way of letting things happen the way they did to guide me to where I need to be.
