undergradWunmi, a 20 year old National Diploma student of the Rufus Giwa Polytechnic in Owo, Ondo State has tragically passed away after a botched abortion.
Her boyfriend who is also the herbalist who gave her a concoction to terminate the pregnancy is currently in Police custody according to Vanguard Newspaper.

What Happened?
The deceased who is an orphan was the daughter of a herbalist. The suspect, according to findings is an apprentice to the father of the deceased when he was alive. Vanguard gathered that the suspect has been showing a romantic interest in the deceased before her father’s death but was hindered because her late father disapproved of the relationship.

But when her father later died, the suspect walked his way into the heart of the deceased and a relationship ensued and he begin to fend for her. Some years into the relationship, the unexpected reportedly happened and the suspect reportedly prepared a concoction for his lover to terminate the unwanted pregnancy.

Medical Intervention
The deceased was said to have taken the concoction and after some days she developed severe abdominal pain. Sensing that trouble was knocking at his door, the suspect was said to have rushed her to a private hospital where the doctor who was recently picked up and quizzed by detectives helped them to evacuate the remnants of the pregnancy.

After the evacuation of the fetus by the doctor in the private hospital, her persistent complaint of abdominal pain made the suspect to relocate her to the State general hospital where she later gave up the ghost.

Secrets
According to relatives, the deceased kept her pregnancy and abortion a secret. In addition, when initially admitted to the State General Hospital, the couple allegedly failed to disclose the relevant medical history (the abortion and evacuation).

Her grieving sister explained;
“It was a friend called Omololu who informed me that my sister has been admitted in the State specialist hospital and was critically ill. I rushed to the hospital to meet my sister in pain complaining of stomach ache. She insisted that the doctors should not give her injection or drips as prescribed.”

    this is why abortion should be legal. imagine if the abortion was carried out by a trained doctor. this girl wont have died.

    so many women have died from abortion done by quack doctors. abortion is suppose to be painless and quick.

      But why would he want her to abort though if he loved her so much even against her father’s wish?There are other people that would be justified if they perform abortion like e.g people that were “RAPED” or if the fetus poses a health challenge to the mother. Abortion shouldn’t be for every tom,dick and maria, if not people will abuse the opportunity…..

    What will she tell God now? Each time i read death stories, only thing i fear is the circumstances surrounding them. I just pray that the circumstances that will surround my death when i’m ready, will be problem free, and i have enough time to make peace with God before i exit. May she rest in peace.

    What is wrong with bellanaija and linda ikeji? These are media empires set up by women. Why is her pic up and not the pic of the herbalist/culprits? Where is the women empathy in your reporting?

    Imagine the stigma on her nearest and dearest in a society like ours?

    Why is the female narrative always why she should or shouldn’t on her body?

    Shame on you bellanaija and linda. Please take down her photo!

    Some people will come now and comment that this could have been avoided if abortion was legal…thus ignoring the giant elephant in the room again.

    Sad she had to go this way.

    My point (if it was missed in the previous comment) is
    Abortion does not save lives, it ends them. At least one life goes in every abortion attempt.

      It’s not your place to decide how people would use their body (bodily integrity). Every woman should have the right to a safe and satisfying sexual life including access to contraceptives and safe abortion. You are a woman and you should demand for your sexual right,.. Don’t let years of oppression from men, religious patriarchy and an unfair society stop you from achieving your full potential as a woman.

      Ehen, did I not say it? All you abortion propagandists are experts at dodging the real issue concerning abortion. You can’t talk about a woman’s right to her body and ignore the baby’s right to life. At least the latter is actually a basic human right. I don’t know what men, patriarchy and society has got to do with the fact that murder is murder, there are no two names for it. If you like, have all the sexual rights you want but when another life gets involved, your rights and that of the new one have to be considered. Life is precious, no matter the stage.

      If Nigeria ever declares war, try talking about “bodily integrity”. Go to Germany, raise your right hand and even whisper heil Hitler and talk about “bodily integrity”, go to Singapore and litter and see how much your “bodily integrity” will be respected or better yet when ordered by an American policeman to put your hands up, defend your “bodily integrity” by not. Bodily integrity is literally the worst pro-abortion argument of them all.

      You really have no idea do you?? Not a single thought…please dont ever tell anyone what to do or what not to do, you have no control over others only your own self.

      Please ask the women in your family about abortion and see that its not always black and white. Dont throw the baby away with the bath water….

      Anyway, the guy should be brought to book! Manslaughter!!

    Even in death she suffers humiliation. I don’t think her picture deserved to be published. She is not the first human to have sex

    I think i agree with molarah! The boy should be arrested too…for crying out loud nobody is putting a gun to ur head asking u not to have sex! D highest ur pastors do is preach against it! Pls why is it that in this generation we always want to dodge responsibility! Its basic biology education in secondary schools…i think even as early as jss1…if u are having sex, things are bound to happen, std’s and pregnancy included! With all due respect if somone wasnt raped! I dont see another reason fr abortion! Some months ago i was in an akward situation kissing and romancing a girl! After our tongues touched i excused my self to go and spit! No how mouth wasnt smelling…i was just scared of exchanging mouth fluids with somone i really didnt know well! I didnt knw any serious ‘implication’ apart frm d ebola scare which was well over by then! But nevertheless i was scared! Point is, i blv d reasons we are called adults is bcos we understand d consequences of our actions and can handle them! And yes i believe d feotus its human and has d right to life! Have u ever seen a woman who had a miscarriage, mourn her baby? I hv and i was surprised that why as an outsided i never even counted d miscarried baby as one of her kids… d mother was aware and carried d child in her heart even years later!
    Pls enof of these lame talk blaming ppl for actions u were well aware off! And besides ppl die everyday from more serious issues!

    What a tragedy for that bloodline. That poor sister left behind will have more sorrows to bear. I cannot even imagine what it would feel like to be the last of a family tree alive. I hope she can find the strength to go on. Life!!!

    If you don’t want children ever that’s fine, simply get your tubes tied. Problem solved.

    If you don’t want to have children yet, that’s fine get a contraceptive implant, go on the pill, always use a condom. Problem solved.

    The above do not in away constitute the “patriarchy” putting you down, it just gets absurd when people start using “bodily integrity” to defend abortion.

    Lest the pro/anti debate derail the main issue here, two lives were lost, a tragedy which could have been avoided if proper sex education was made a part of our curriculum.
