“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.
Akpan was rescued by the 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.
Udoh, who is the founder of Divine Yard of God Ministry, Iyana Ota area, said she did not know anything about plans to sell the baby as alleged by the police.
She said she only assisted Akpan, who was brought by her sister, Angela to the church where she delivered her baby.
