The visit is part of other support system for the teenager to heal.
The teenager was flogged and manhandled for not sleeping home on the orders of the step father.
Two young men were ordered to strip and whip the young lady according to visuals that were making rounds on social media.
According to the narration of the young lady, one of the young men inserted his finger into her vagina when she was recaptured after trying to flee.
