Earlier this year, the Senior Pastor of House of Freedom, Dr. Tony Rapu, and his team visited Ipodo, a notorious street in Ikeja, Lagos State and in the process rescued 26-year-old Lizzy, who has taken to begging, hard drugs and prostitution as means of survival.
Lizzy, who attended two prestigious schools in Lagos; Caleb Nursery and Primary School as well as Vivian Fowler Secondary School, Billingsway, Oregun, has been suffering from drug addiction for seven years.
Lizzy said her ex-boyfriend introduced her to smoking of weed. He, thereafter, told her he had been mixing her wraps up with cocaine. “I couldn’t visit any rehabilitation centre because I thought it wouldn’t help. I started with weed smoking, then one day, my boyfriend told me he had been adding cocaine and I was surprised. I asked him why he would do such without my consent, but it wasn’t long before I got addicted to it. It became so critical that I had to take to begging during the day and prostitution at night.”
Recently pictures of rehabilitated Lizzy was shared online.
