Nigerian fashion designer and stylist, Toyin Lawani, has disclosed how she was raped by her uncle and got pregnant at the age of fifteen.
She shared this during her interview with media personality, Chude Jideonwo, expressing that she was bullied by her uncle not to inform anyone but she finally told her aunt who took her to the hospital to abort the pregnancy.
Lawani said, “I got raped by my uncle when I was 15-years and I had to go to my grandmother’s place in Ibadan.
“I didn’t tell my mother but had to tell one of my aunties.
“They had to take me to a hospital in Ibadan, the pregnancy was about five months already because I didn’t tell anyone and it was so hard for me.
“My mum was so disappointed and hurt. She could not take it.”
She further revealed that this experience made her very protective of her children, as people can’t be trusted.
