The Ogun State Police Command has reacted to a viral video of a mentally unstable young lady who stripped herself and barked like a dog in Abeokuta, Ogun State.
The State Police Spokesman, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said this in a statement on Friday noted that the lady was allegedly used spiritually and diabolically.
According to him, the command was aware of the report of the yet-to-be-identified lady who must have been used for money ritual by a suspected internet fraudster popularly known as Yahoo boy.
Oyeyemi 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.”
The PPRO said when the lady was taken to the police station, she was “very difficult to control because she was acting violently, hence she was kept in the cell.”
Oyeyemi said the police had immediately contacted her parents, saying she was taken to the hospital with the help of the police.
The command’s spokesman added that “the alleged Yahoo boy was immediately arrested for interrogation”.
However, Oyeyemi said the command was surprised and embarrassed to see the video of the victim circulating on social media.
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 police cell.

“In view of this, the Commissioner of Police, 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.
