Young Nigerian girl narrates how boyfriend turned her into cocaine addict(video)

Amadin Ogbewe



A young girl called Lizzy has narrated how her boyfriend got her addicted to cocaine at a young age prompting her become a commercial s£x worker to sustain her habit. 

She was rescued by Pastor Tony Rapu who put her into a rehabilitation program. 

According to the pastor, Lizzy was being used by pimps in Ikeja who give her drugs in exchange for commerical sex work.

He wrote:

We visited Ipodo this afternoon, a dilapidated and degraded community in the heart of Ikeja.

Our visit was to rescue 26 year old Lizzy from the clutches of her captors; the drug sellers and pimps who feed her drug habit from the proceeds of prostitution and other vices.

This is the story of Lizzy who has been begging on the streets of Lagos especially in the Ikeja area for seven years. Dressed in a way to attract sympathy, she begs for money in the busy traffic during the day. At night she resorts to commercial sex work, all in a bid to fund her drug addiction. We took Lizzy off the streets last week to begin her long journey of rehabilitation and hopefully, successful integration back to a normal and productive life.

We picked up Lizzy over the weekend. Here, she tells a bit of her story while awaiting our arrival at the joint she frequented in Ikeja. Lizzy tells about her upbringing, her addiction to crack cocaine and the depraved night life she lived to make money to pay the drug dealers. She is currently undergoing her first stage of detox and rehabilitation in the long journey out of addiction. We hope and pray she returns to a normal and productive life afterwards. • For more information about our rehab program, to sponsor or nominate a beneficiary, kindly send a DM to @freedom_fdn • #Addiction #DrugAbuse #TransformALife #Community #Outreach #MyLagosDiaries #FreedomFoundation #GodBlessNigeria #GenesisHouse #HouseOfRefugeForWomen
