According to the popular clergyman, the rescued lady who is allegedly an ex student of Vivian Fowler School took to begging, hard drugs and prostitution as means of survival.
In the viral video of the development shared online, Pastor Tony Rapu who is popular for his social work with his Freedom Foundation said; “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.
