In another heartfelt story taking a grass to grace dimension, help has finally come the way of Esohe Akonedo following her explosive interview where she gave an account of a heart-wrenching migration experience.
The Edo-born woman, speaking with Legit TV, had given an appalling tale of how she was stranded in Libya, a war-ravaging country connecting Africa to Europe, in a desperate search of a verdant field of promise.
Akonedo narrated that she was s*xually molested in the desert after their vehicle was attacked by armed robbers, adding that she had to drink her urine because there was no water.
Marital distress and greener-pasture turned hardship in Libya
According to the mother of four kids, her husband abandoned her with the children in what eventually forced her to travel to Libya in search of greener pastures.
Akonedo disclosed that she was working as a salesgirl before leaving the shores of Nigeria only for her situation to be a horrid shift from frying pan to fire.
Life as a sex worker and mother
She further revealed that she worked as a prostitute and since moving back to Nigeria, life hasn't been easy for her.
