Miss SaHHara who is now based in the United Kingdom, took to her Instagram page to insist that she was born in Nigeria for a purpose which was to ‘change minds and educate closed-minded folks’ who are hostile towards gay people and trans.’

In answering a question posed by one of her fans in her page, Miss SaHHara said:

“Do you have any regrets coming from the part of the world you’re from due to their hostility towards trans and gay people?”

She replied:

“Yes, it makes me sad but I was born there for a purpose to change minds and educate closed minded folks!”

Miss Sahara who was born as Clifford Oche in Otukpo Nobi in Otukpo Local Government Area of Benue State, is one of the first known Nigerian transgenders and has continued to claim that she was born as a woman and that the sex surgery she had to transform into a full woman was just to fulfill her freedom which many had denied her in the past.
