Eighteen- year – old Terna Taga , who allegedly impregnated a 10- year – old internally displaced person , Masenengen Targba , has said he did not meet the girl a virgin .
On Sunday, Targba was said to have been abandoned at a hospital but later rushed to Foundation Memorial Hospital , Makurdi , where she gave birth to a baby girl .
Taga is a farmer who dropped out of school in Senior Secondary School 1 .
Taga , who was paraded by the Benue State Commissioner of Police , Mohammed Garuba , told our correspondent on Thursday that though he slept with the little girl twice , he didn’ t meet her virgin .
He said he slept with her twice in December 2018 with her consent .
He said , “ I actually slept with her twice in December last year and it was with her consent .
I did not rape her and since then , every effort to get close to her proved abortive as she was always running away whenever I saw her .
“ It was around May this year , l saw her with pregnancy and I tried to engage her in a talk but she ran away . ”
Taga said after she was delivered of a baby, his cousin informed him that Masenengen mentioned his name as the father of her child , adding that he accepted responsibility as the baby’ s father and went to the hospital to see her .
He stated , “ It was while I was at the hospital that the police arrested me .
The first time I met her , she only came to my house and told me that her uncle sent her away from the house and that she didn’ t have a place to sleep and I offered to accommodate her in my house that night .
“ I gave her food and allowed her to sleep without touching her .
The next day, she returned saying the same story and it was then that I slept with her for the first time .
Then I slept with her another time . In all, I slept with her twice . ”
When asked if the girl was not too young for him to sleep with, Taga said , “I never thought she was too young when I was sleeping with her .
But the truth is that I didn’ t meet her a virgin . She wasn’ t a virgin at all. ”
