Deborah, who is a native of Osisioma Local Government Area, Abia State, was found in a forest located in Ossah Mission Hill, Umuahia.

The Nigerian Tribune reported that girl lost parental care when her mother, Mrs Happiness remarried after her father died in 2013.

She abandoned Deborah and her three sisters and went off to live with her new husband.

Walter Akubiro Chika, the NSCDC state commandant confirmed that the teenager was rescued on Friday, November 11, 2016.

“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.

“Efforts made by NSCDC Anti-Child Trafficking Unit to reach the mother of the girl and her boyfriend proved abortive," Chika said.
