A Nigerian woman has reportedly passed away after being forced to get an abortion by her chauvinist husband.
According to Twitter user @_Mayowa_Sam, the woman’s husband forced her to get an abortion because he doesn’t want another female child.
The couple reportedly had three daughters before she became pregnant again. Out of concern about the child’s gender, the husband allegedly ordered his wife to terminate the pregnancy.
Sadly, she died as a result of complications from the abortion. The husband is said to be currently on the run.
“This man asked his wife to go for an abortion, saying he is sure she’s carrying another baby girl. The wife died on Tuesday after the abortion. They had only 3 girls.
“The ladies family don’t know his whereabout at the moment.”
