Grace Ogar, a young Nigerian woman, was ordered by her family to terminate her three-month pregnancy owing to cultural divides between her and her lover.

Ogar, a native of Akwa Ibom, is being pressured by her relatives, especially her aunt, Esther Patrick, to terminate the pregnancy. Adeola Oluwamilua, her lover, is from Ogun State.

Patrick is accused of pressuring the young woman to abort the pregnancy for a variety of reasons, including her dislike of Oluwamilua’s facial traits.

The young lady who met with Ebenezer Omejalile, a vulnerable persons advocate, claimed she had expressed interest in attending a higher education institution, but her family had refused her due to financial constraints.

“Before I got pregnant, I met Adeola, who works in the printing industry and is 33 years old,” she explained. Adeola has been contacting my mother; she is in the north, and we could have gone to see her but for the dangerous road conditions, so my mother suggested Adeola see my aunt, who does not like him at all. They don’t like him because he’s Yoruba; they claimed they could get me another man, and they offered a Ghanaian, but I don’t like him.

“I’m not sure why she dislikes him, but I told my aunt that this is the man I’m going to marry, and since we’ve already discussed school, I told them I’d like to take the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, and they were all excited, but when I requested for money, no one said anything. As a result, I opted to work first in order to save money, and then I met Adeola.

”He suggested that we marry in a courtroom, and my mother agreed. When I found out I was pregnant, my aunt advised that if Adeola was to blame for the pregnancy, I should terminate it.

“My elder brothers came around, invited the young man, and asked him what he plans to do now that I’m pregnant with his child, and he said he’ll take me in as a wife and perform all of the appropriate procedures. My sister interrupted them and informed me that they had found Adeola has a child from a previous relationship.

“My aunt was still adamant that I couldn’t marry Adeola, so she called her buddy, a Ghanaian man,” she explained. She said that’s who they want, and I told her there’s no way I’m giving this child to another father; if he doesn’t find out now, he’ll find out later. My mum has also expressed her desire for the Ghanaian man.

“They had already phoned a nurse to come and terminate the pregnancy, so the nurse inquired as to how many months I was pregnant so that the type of injection they would give me could be determined. I was terrified. I didn’t want to go home, but my brother told me not to worry about it.

“Later, my mother advised me not to abort the pregnancy, saying I was free to make my own decision, but my sisters began pestering me with calls, saying they needed to see me so they could perform the abortion; one of them, who is currently in Port Harcourt, even said the type of abortion they wanted to perform would not take long.

”The nurse also advised me not to be afraid of the abortion, saying that the man with whom I am pregnant with his child will exploit and dump me. They gave me three days to make a decision or else the kid would be aborted. They told me I had to get the abortion because that was what they wanted. I’m not ready to abort this baby, so I’m going to retain it, marry Adeola, and continue my study part-time.”
