She further stated that she hated her mother because of the incident, as she was never there for her.

She 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 added.

The person was so close to my family which is why I am so strict with my kids. I don’t trust anyone, even your brothers, sisters, anybody can betray you. Nobody can come close to my children anyhow, you can’t trust anyone, even your brothers and sisters. I lost my innocence at a very young age and I hated my mum so much for it because she wasn’t there for me; she was always at work. It traumatized me but now I understand”,
