The Ogun State Police Command has confirmed the report of a young lady who barks like a dog naked in Abeokuta, Ogun state on Friday.
The state police spokesman, Abimbola Oyeyemi who released the statement said the lady might have been used for money ritual by a suspected internet fraudster also known as Yahoo boy.
The spokesman said,“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 a dog.”
He added that the victim who was bought to the police naked is very difficult to control, because she was acting violently which led to keeping her in the cell.
Oyeyemi said that the police have contacted her parents and the girl has been taken to a hospital with the help of the police.
He said that,“the alleged Yahoo boy was immediately arrested for interrogation,” adding that the case which drew a large crowd to the station was later transferred to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department on the directive of the Commissioner of Police, Lanre Bankole”.
However, the spokesman said the command was surprised and very embarrassed to see the video of the lady naked circulating on the internet.
He said, “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 a police cell.
“In view of this, the Commissioner of Police, 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, uncivilised and despicable circulating such video on 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 is found to be the source of the video and those behind its circulation on social media in the most decisive manner notwithstanding the status of the person”.
