I got pregnant in, but my coach and grandmother decided I had to abort it because we were a month and a week away from going to the Black Queens camp,” Sulemana told Original FM.
My coach went to see my grandparents. I was young by then, so recently, an elderly man I know told me the place I reside was where the termination of my pregnancy was done.
When we came, I was instructed to lie down, and my stomach was injected, so I felt the pain. I was carrying twins for seven months, but I didn’t know and was not seeing it. I had my period regularly; there were no signs of me being pregnant.
