A young mother of one has appealed to Nigerians to assist her in returning to school.
Taking to Twitter, the lady identified as Uke Doose Priscilla shared her heart-touching story.
Doose said she had gained admission into a college of education with the hopes of becoming a teacher but got distracted along the course of her study.
She had dropped out of school after getting pregnant and was not able to handle nursing a child while pursuing her academics.
Sharing photos of herself and the unnamed kid, Doose said she returned to her hometown where she cultivated cassava with her mum to make ends meet.
Things got tough and she lost her mother to cancer. In her quest for a job, she met a friend who after promising to help her only took her to a brothel where she would work as a prostitute, she recounted.
Doose had dashed out of the place and now decided to resort to seeking help on social media.

"I've met many girls on your position and they continued with prostituting and they can't seem to stop. I thank God and praise you for fleeing away from it and may God bless you. Pls do not see prostution as a source of livelihood."
"I'm glad you asked for help and I pray may you find the help."
