Nothing is new under the heavens, many would say. But some new things/happenings could rightly be said to be rare.
If a lot of guys were looking for virgins, not to talk of a virgin at 90, it would not be in Akwa Ibom or Cross River states where the libido of the average lady is believed to be extremely high.
But true, Ikot Udobia village in the Etinan Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom State is set to immortalise a 90-year old virgin, Miss Agnes Udofia.
What do you say?
Information has it that she has been caring for the children of other people.
Punch reports that over 50 men, women and children gathered around her on Monday to give thanks to God for preserving the life of a woman they all thought was their biological mother.
“Our correspondent asked Udofia about her husband, but she replied that she never knew any man in her entire life. She said she had never been married, and had no boyfriend when she was young.
“She said, “I was born partially blind and so, no man saw anything good in me. So, I grew up without a man. I have never slept with any man as far as my memory can carry me, not even in my dream.”
“Udofia told our correspondent that her belief is that she was created by God to live and die without a husband, child and anything to call her own.
“She explained that she saw things in and around her as normal, adding that she did not hate men and believed that men hate her.
“She said, “I live my life the way you see me. No feeling for a man. I don’t see it as abnormal.”
“Udofia, who said she enjoyed taking care of little children, added that she did not have a business of her own.
“As for the children she trained, she explained that their mothers often dropped them with her when they were going to farms, markets or stream.
“I would take care of them until they returned to take their children. I feed them and keep them happy as long as they stay with me,” she added.”
