She said in an interview with Vanguard that she did support her first abortion at the age of 19, given the nature of her financial situation, and that she aborted her second pregnancy at the age of 24, due to the poisonous nature of her relationship with an unnamed partner.

She said:

“if there are 100 women in Nigeria today, 98 have done abortions. So, no one should judge me. I was in a 12-year relationship then and I was so young. The first abortion was when I was 19; I couldn’t go home to tell my parents that I was pregnant at that age. And the two pregnancies were so early like two to three weeks that I could just use tablets. The second was when I was 24, and I had finished serving then. I was ready to keep it but the relationship was getting toxic. He abused me and always beat me up. I said to myself that I couldn’t do this anymore, so I took it out and that was how I ended the relationship.”
