Popular fashionista, Toyin Lawani, opens up about a traumatic experience with her uncle who impregnated her when she was 15.

The fashion designer made this known in a recent interview with the media personality, Chude Jideonwo.

According to Toyin Lawani, her uncle forced himself on her which led to a pregnancy that had to be terminated as a result of her age.

“I never told anybody this before, I don’t think I have told my husband. At 15, I got raped by someone in my neighborhood, I have told my husband about the rape 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.

It was at the same time I had to go get my admission in Uni and my mum, my mum is late – my dad is late, so don’t want to break down, so I can’t talk about it.

They had to take me to a hospital in Ibadan, the pregnancy was about 5 months cause I didn’t tell anyone and it was so hard for me,” she said.
