A 26-year-old cocaine addict simply identified as Lizzy, has recounted how her boyfriend got her into drug addiction.
Lizzy’s story was shared by Lagos pastor, Tony Rapu, whose foundation is working to get her off drug addiction.
In two videos shared online, Lizzy who went to A-list schools like Vivian Fowler, Caleb Nursery and Primary School, recounted how her boyfriend introduced her to crack. She also narrated how she resorted to begging and prostitution just to feed her addiction.
”I am lizzy. I have been here now for seven years. I have been seeing different rehabs and I have refused to go because I feel they will not be able to take care of me because the Heroin and Cocaine has gone inside of me very well.
I finished my secondary school from Vivian Fowler. I went to Caleb Nursery and Primary School.
I came into drugs through a friend. He used to be my boyfriend. He was putting it in my weed I didn’t know. There was a day he showed it to me and told me he had been putting it in my weed I didn’t know. I was like what is this and he told me its cocaaine. That was how I got into cocaine”
Posting her video online, Pastor Tony 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.
