Young girl who has been on cocaine and prostitution for 7 years, rescued in Ikeja (Photos/Video)

This is the story of Lizzy, a 26-years-old girl who was introduced to cocaine by her ex-boyfriend, and has been on it for 7 years now.

Lizzy also begs in Lagos traffic during the day and prostitutes at night to fund her drug addiction.

Pastor Tony Rapu of House of Freedom, 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.

Lizzy who appeared to speak so well, revealed she attended Caleb International School and Vivian Fowler Memorial College, (Elite schools in Lagos).

Watch her videos below….

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
