A 19-year-old pregnant woman has been rescued from committing suicide in the Ikorodu area of Lagos State.

The woman later claimed that her reason for her action was because she was jilted by her boyfriend after impregnating her.

She claimed that the man refused to take responsibility for the pregnancy months after she discovered that she was pregnant.

She said, “I also fell victim to a fraudster who scammed me of my earnings from my POS business. All these compounded my emotional and financial struggles.”

Lagos State police spokesman, Benjamin Hundeyin, who confirmed the incident, said she was rescued by officers from the Ikorodu Area Command.

Hundeyin said that on June 29, 2024, at about 2pm, someone informed police authorities about a young woman who was about to commit suicide by ingesting a harmful chemical known as Sniper.

He said officers promptly responded to the tip-off, raced to the scene where the girl was located and prevented her from causing harm to herself.

He further said, “Upon rescue, the lady, whose identity remains confidential, confessed that she had been driven to the brink of suicide due to severe emotional distress.

“She revealed that she was impregnated by a man who subsequently refused to take responsibility for the pregnancy. Additionally, she had fallen victim to a fraudster.”

He added that the young woman was receiving psychological support and that investigation was underway to identify and apprehend all individuals involved in her predicament.
