Popular Nollywood actress, Ada Ameh, has recounted how she got pregnant at 13 years old because of peer pressure. She stated that she was introduced to sex at an early age by her peers.
While speaking recently in an interview with media personality, Chude Jideonwo, she said, she was not forced by her parents but was influenced by her peers.
Her words: “It wasn’t my parents. I was influenced by my peers. They introduced me to ‘early s*x’. One thing led to another and I got pregnant. I got pregnant in March and I had my baby in December same year. That means I got pregnant when I was 13+. The most beautiful part is that, on my 15th birthday, my baby was barely five months old. I was marched out of the Barracks”.
“I was lost already. I had stepped my leg one way in the world. There’s no need for lies, I had gotten my independence. One of the things that has not been easy for me was the fact that I allowed my daughter to leave for Abuja. The day I made that mistake was the day I left her to leave the house. I’ve lived with that guilt all my life”, she said.
