New York — Prep student turned gang-banger Afrika Owes is receiving help from members of the Abyssinian Baptist Church who raised $25,000 cash bail for the release of the 17-year-old from Rikers Island.

Owes has been at Rikers since mid-February, when she and 14 other alleged gang members were accused of drug dealing and gun running. Her boyfriend, Jaquan Layne, led a violent street gang in her Harlem neighborhood.

Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Edward McLaughlin wouldn’t allow the church to post bail until the majority of the congregation agreed.

The church voted unanimously to post the bail in a congregation meeting consisting of “500 to 600 members.”
