In continuation of evacuation of mentally  challenged persons from the streets of Anambra State, as directed by the State  Governor, His Excellency, Chief Willie M Obiano, the Anambra State Ministry of Children and Women Affairs, few days ago rescued a heavily pregnant mentally challenged teenager, who was spotted roaming around Enugu Agidi junction Amawbia, Awka Capital Territory.

The young lady, who should be in her late teens, was spotted at the said junction by the state commissioner for Children and Women Affairs, Lady Ndidi Mezue, who was on her way to an important  state function, she immediately mandated the evacuation team led by Mr Onyebuchi Anaedozie, to rush to Enugu Agidi junction to affect the evacuation of the young lady.

The team immediately swung to action and rescued the scantily clad young lady, the Honorable Commissioner, took out time from her busy schedule to personally relocate the lady to Community Children Home Awka, instead of the usual Nteje Home for the mentality challenged.

According to Lady Mezue, the teenager will  be accorded a better care at the children community home, than Nteje Rehabilitation center, because of her condition, while effort to locate her family has already commenced

The Honorable Commissioner, equally made adequate arrangement for a Psycratist to commence evaluation of her mental state and subsequent  rehabilitation of the pregnant teen, as she awaits her due date of delivery.
