In a conversation with Chude Jideonwo, Nigerian businesswoman and fashion designer Toyin Lawani revealed how a very close relative forcedfully exploited her. Toyin Lawani revealed that her father abandoned her at the young age of 14, and that she was raped by a neighbor when she was just 15 years old. She claimed that one of her uncles had forcedly acquired carnal knowledge of her, and she was unable to tell her mother or anyone else because her uncle had bullied her to the point where she was unable to speak.
Toyin Lawani claimed that after telling one of her aunts about the unfortunate event, the aunt decided to take her to an Ibadan hospital to terminate the five-month-old pregnancy. She claimed that while she was waiting to be admitted at Unilag, she passed out and was taken to the hospital. Toyin claimed that when her mother returned from her trip to Hong Kong, the doctor told her that she was pregnant and that they needed to terminate the pregnancy; however, she claimed that her mother couldn’t do so.
Toyin Lawani admitted that this tragedy, which occurred to her when she was a young girl, caused her to become tough with her kids and made her distrustful of people because even your own family might betray you.
