Lady Barking In Ogun
The command spokesman, Abimbola Oyeyemi, in a statement on Friday, said the mentally-ill lady was brought to the police station by sympathizers after she stripped herself naked and started barking like a dog.
Reacting to a video showing the lady behaving strange, Oyeyemi said: ”the attention of Ogun State Police Command, has been drawn to a viral video of a young lady who was naked and barking like dog in a police cell.
“The young lady in question, was alleged to have been spiritually and diabolically used by a suspected yahoo boy, as a result of which she started barking like dog.
“She was brought to the police station naked and was very difficult to control because she was acting violently, hence she was kept in the cell.
“Immediately she was brought to the station, her parents were contacted, and she was taken to the Hospital for medical attention with the help of the police, while the alleged Yahooboy was immediately arrested for interrogation.
“The case which attracted multitude of people to the station was transferred to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for discreet investigation on the order of Commissioner of Police, CP Lanre Bankole.
“The Command was surprised and embarrassed to see the video of the victim circulating on the social media. The height of the embarrassment was the fact that the said video was recorded while the victim who was then naked and uncontrollable was in police cell.
“In view of this, CP Lanre Bankole, has ordered a full scale investigation to unravel the source of the video and how it became a subject of social media discussion.
“It is barbaric, uncivilized and despicable circulating such video on the social media as such will in no small measure denigrate the human dignity of the victim which might be another source of psychological trauma for her.
“The Command, has therefore, vowed to deal with whoever found to be the source of the video and those behind its circulation on the social media in the most decisive manner notwithstanding the status of the person”.
KanyiDaily recalls that a young lady had also narrated how a yahoo boy stole the sum of N1.3 million from her account after sleeping with her for eight days in Abuja, Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
