People Are Arguing About A 17-Year Old Girl Who Was Sent To Study Medicine In Russia But Got Pregnant Some Months After


The story of a 17-year old girl has started a conversation on twitter and the question is, “should a young girl be allowed to travel abroad alone?”

A twitter user, @irorere_edith, shared the story of her young cousin, who was sent to Russia to study Medicine but got pregnant for a 20-year old 4th year student.

According to her, her young cousin is less than a year and her mum is so angry that she has blocked her daughter on Whatsapp and won’t even answer the pleadings from family members.

So, she urged parents not to send minors abroad alone as they are always intoxicated by the freedom they get.

I repeat never send a minor abroad to study on her own without a guardian…my 17 yrs old cousin who is in Russia studying Medicine now 4 months pregnant.. the school hospital need 600 usd to terminate the pregnancy… she called her mum her mum blocked her on whtapp

She’s less than a yr in Russia, I advise she go back to Nigeria.. she said her mum won’t allow her go back to sch.. she said she will commit suicide if her mum don’t come through for her. I called her mum more than 20 times yesterday to beg her she’s nt taking my calls either..

Again Parents don’t send ur minor abroad to study, the freedom they get outside Nigeria is intoxicating.. my auntie has learnt in a v hard way.. I hope she get over it and come through her daughter really soon!

As expected, Nigerians have shared their thoughts on the situation and while some chastised the young girl, saying she should be allowed to have the baby and learn the hard way, some think that there are women who traveled alone at a very young age but didn’t misbehave. According to these people, the young girl is wayward.
