Viral story of Lizzy, a drug addict who attended Caleb, Vivian Fowler Schools

The Internet is currently buzzing with the story of a young girl, Lizzy who has been rescued from drug addiction by Senior Pastor of The House of Freedom, Tony Rapu.

The story of Lizzy, a young girl who said she attended Vivian Fowler Memorial Secondary School at Oregun, Lagos, and Caleb Nursery and Primary School, broke late Tuesday.

It is unclear, however, where Caleb Nursery and Primary School is located.

Rapu shared a video on Instagram late Tuesday of Lizzy who said she had been an addict for seven years and had resorted to begging in the day and prostitution at night to sustain her addiction.

Lizzy said she began with weed smoking until her former boyfriend shocked her one day by telling her that he had been adding cocaine to her wraps.

“I couldn’t visit any rehabilitation 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 at day and prostitution at night. I attended Caleb Nursery and Primary School and Vivian Fowler Secondary School.

“I have been hearing of Tony Rapu, but missed seeing him earlier when he came to our community (Ikeja), he came for Bukky then. I have been waiting for this day when I would meet him. I know he is the only one that can help me get over this,” Lizzy said.

Rapu wrote on his Instagram page: “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 nightlife 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.”
