Doctors have made a shocking revelation that girls in Aba starts having active s*x life at the age of 10 putting them at risk of contracting s*xually transmitted infections.
According to News Agency of Nigeria, Mr. Uwaoma, the Chairman of the Thematic Working Group at the Nigerian Faith Based Advisory Council for AIDS (NFACA), and also a medical practitioner disclosed that girls in Aba , Abia state, engage in s*xual activities from the age of 10, and this will lead to a higher chance of contracting HIV
He said “We discovered that some girls in Aba start sexual activities at the age 10 to 12 and that at the age of 12, girls in Aba have “regular boyfriends” with whom they agree to have sex regularly.
“This was not known before. Usually HIV prevention was targeted at age 15 upward but we now know that before 15 they have become sexually active.
“And there is a lot of difference between when you are forced into it and you remove yourself thereafter and when at this age you now have a regular partner.
“That was what we discovered and it is not normal but an aberration but obviously the fact is there,” he said.
And also, in another lecture titled “S*x and Puberty,” Kenneth Ngwogu, a lecturer at the Abia State University, said that puberty brought changes in character and body composition to young people.
Noting that most youth ruined their lives through dangerous actions like early sex, he urged them to consult doctors or adults to manage the challenges of puberty.
However, he charged the youth to desist from sexual activities which could refocus their attention while in school to reach their goals of becoming successful people and to the country at-large.
