Social media has been buzzing with the viral video of a young girl, simply identified as Lizzy and her battle with cocaine addiction.

Lizzy is a 26 year old alumnus of Caleb Nursery and Primary school and Vivian Fowler Secondary School. In the video, she talks about how she started out using the drug as well as what she does to keep up with it. Any attempt to seek help and undergo rehabilitation had proved abortive, until she met Pastor Tony Rapu, an evangelist and social reformer.

Revealing how he met Lizzy, Pastor 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.”


Our motto is: ‘We stand for the truth, irrespective of who tells it’. Driven by this philosophy, our aim has been to create a platform where every voice, every narrative – provided they are decently expressed –  is allowed expression. Our belief is that by promoting unfettered competition of ideas, the truth will eventually emerge. Obviously, doing this while resisting any temptation to be captured by any special interest or tendency makes survival as an online newspaper more challenging. This is why we will appreciate any support from our readers:
