“Promptly responding to the tip-off, officers were dispatched to the scene where the girl was located and prevented from causing herself harm.

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

The spokesperson said that the lady revealed that she was impregnated by a man who subsequently refused to take responsibility for the pregnancy.

He said that the woman also revealed that she had fallen victim to a fraudster who scammed her of her earnings from her Point of Sale (POS) business, further compounding her emotional and financial struggles.

According to him, the young woman is currently receiving necessary psychological support while the investigation is underway to identify and apprehend all individuals involved in her predicament.
