Meet Lizzy, a cocaine addict who is a commerical sex worker at night

Pastor Tony Rapu has revealed how a young girl called Lizzy was rescued from commercial sex work which she uses to fuel her cocaine addiction.

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.

Tony Rapu also spoke on how his team rescued her and working towards her rehabilitation.

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.
