“Any woman who tries to obtain an abortion commits a felony and faces a seven-year prison sentence,” Nigerian police warn.

Aliyu Giwa, a Nigerian police officer, has cautioned that attempting to obtain an abortion is a criminal punishable by up to seven years in prison.

On Twitter on Tuesday, June 21, the former Deputy Public Relations Officer of the Lagos State Police Command confirmed this.

Anyone who tries to make a lady miscarry her child faces a 14-year prison sentence, according to him.

He went on to say that providing abortion-inducing medicines or devices is a criminal punishable by up to three years in prison.
