The 18-year-old came out by announcing her relationship with her girlfriend, Chinese social media influencer Andi Autumn, on instagram.

After the announcement, Etta Ng went to her Instagram page to show gratitude for the love and support she has received thus far, despite being mocked by the Hong Kong media.

She wrote:

I am in awe at the amount of support and love poured my way, I am speechless at how followers went to my Girlfriend @andiautumn and my account to show us both so much positivity. People all over the world have been rooting us on as Hong Kong media continues to mock. I’ve grown up in a world of negativity and close-mindedness but I am at that point where I realise that I can use my experience to tell my truths and help others just like me. Thankfully I’ve grown since the days I was powerless and uncertain what the world has for me. Thank you for the enormous outpour of love and acceptance. 🌈❤️🙌🏻💪🏻 … #loveislove #lovewins #lovealwayswins … #love #support … #queer #gay #gaygram #loveyourself #advocacy.

An Igbosere High Court has dissolved the marriage between OAP  Toke Makinwa and her estranged husband Maje Ayida.

Toke had filed for divorce on March 9, 2016 on the grounds that Maje committed adultery.

Justice Morenike Obadina, while delivering judgment held that Ayida filed an answer to the petition but did not give oral evidence in support of it.

She said the position of the law was settled as pleadings did not amount to evidence. In her statement, she said, “pleadings on which no evidence was led are deemed abandoned. Therefore, Ayida’s evidence is deemed abandoned. The effect being that the petitioner’s evidence is unchallenged and uncontroverted,’’ she ruled.

The judge said the issue of cruelty which the petitioner (Toke) relied on was established because of the “mental and emotional stress” she was subjected to by her husband.

“I hold that the marriage has broken down on grounds of intolerable behaviour.

I hereby pronounce a ‘Decree Nisi’ dissolving the marriage between Makinwa and Ayida which was administered at the Federal Marriage Registry, Ikoyi, Lagos, on January 15, 2014.

The order Nisi shall become absolute three months from today unless within that period sufficient cause is shown why it should not be made absolute,” Obadina said.

Makinwa had told the court that her husband committed adultery with Anita Solomon, adding that the relationship produced a child.

She said since their marriage was contracted, Maje had “behaved in a way she could not reasonably be expected to continue to bear”. She futher disclosed that Maje was cruel towards her, adding that their differences became irreconcilable.

During the trial, Toke testified in court and tendered some documents including their marriage certificate which were admitted in evidence.

In her testimony, she said that after their marriage was contracted in 2014, cohabitation with Maje ceased on November 8, 2015, without any issue.

She also told the court of an instance where Maje threatened separation and even drafted a separation agreement because she discovered that he bought a ticket for Anita to travel to London.

Maje, who replied to the petition when served, however, instructed his counsel, T. O. Lawal, not to continue with the defence.
