Toyin Lawani claims that her uncle forced himself on her, resulting in a pregnancy that had to be terminated due to her age.
“I never told anybody this before, I don’t think I have told my husband. At 15, I got ra-ped by someone in my neighborhood, I have told my husband about the ra-pe before, it was one of my uncle.
I couldn’t tell my mum, it was so bad for me when somebody bullies you to the extent that you can’t talk. It was so bad. I opened up to one of my aunties, she is late now, aunty Bola, and she took me to Ibadan they tried to get rid of the pregnancy.

Toyin also narrated her mother’s reaction and decision on the incident; “I went to get my admission and I fainted at the premises. The doctor opened up to her that I was pregnant and they had to take it out.
She couldn’t take it because I was so young and I didn’t tell her all this because the person was close. That’s why I am very strict with my kids. I felt I had lost my innocence to someone in the same house as us.
My mum was always working. I hated my mum so much because she wasn’t there until now that I had to do the same responsibly for my kids. It traumatized me.”
