A pregnant teenage girl, identified only as Deborah has been rescued by operatives of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corps, NSCDC, in Abia State after she sought to take her life in a forest.
The victim, an indigene of Ariaria, in Osisioma Local Government Area of the state, was rescued from a forest in Ossah Mission Hill, Umuahia, the state capital.
According to Nigerian Tribune, the 18-year-old girl had lost hope in life when her mother, Mrs Happiness remarried after her father died in 2013 and abandoned her with her other three sisters.
The State Commandant of the NSCDC, Walter Akubiro Chika, confirmed her rescue on Friday, saying all efforts made to re-write her future and that of her siblings could not yield any fruit hence, she decided to run to her Aba-based boyfriend, David, who hails from Owerri, Imo State.
“Deborah took in for her boyfriend in the course of their living together, but he denied the pregnancy and pushed her out of the house.
“So having been overwhelmed by her unbearable condition without a helping hand, she resorted to wandering in the street until she made up her mind on committing suicide.
“Fortunately for her, an officer of NSCDC attached to the presiding pastor of Heavenly Jerusalem Assembly Ossah sighted her in the forest and rescued her.
