The female suspect A lady who was arrested as a suspect after two missing siblings were found with her in Ojuwoye Market in the Mushin area of Lagos and currently in the custody of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, Yaba, has been taken by the police to the Federal Neuro-Psychiatric Hospital, Yaba, to determine her state of health.
It was reported last Monday that the suspect was mobbed while allegedly attempting to flee with two siblings, identified as Hammed Rasheed (6), and Farida Raheed (2). According to a report by Punch Metro, the 22-year-old female suspect whose name had yet to be ascertained, had been creating confusion at the SCIID.
She was said to have stripped n*ked on numerous occasions, including the times she was taken out of her cell to give her statement to the police. It was learnt that she also attacked other suspects in her cell, which made the authorities at the SCIID to move her to a solitary cell.
Speaking with a correspondent,a source at the SCIID that at the solitary cell, the suspect continued to strip herself n*ked and was fond of dancing with vigour.
“Since the time they brought her, she had been misbehaving. We initially thought she was putting up a show, but we discovered it was not ordinary.
“She could dance from morning till night although nobody heard the music she was dancing to. She would suddenly remove her clothes, sometimes tearing the clothes off her body. We have tried to take her statement many times, but each time, she stripped herself naked. We usually had to force her to wear the clothes. We had to isolate her in a cell so that there would be peace.
“She eats like elephant and as soon as she wolfs down her food, she would start dancing. If you don’t give her food, it is another problem. If you ask for her name, she will give you more than three names in a second. She had claimed to be Ganiyat, Cynthia, Sola, among other names,” the source added.
Another source told one of our correspondents that the policemen at the SCIID decided to look for
her family, but their efforts had been abortive.
“It was as if she dropped from heaven. Nobody has come to look for her. We went to where she was arrested, but nobody knew where she came from. The suspect has refused to supply any information. She has been busy dancing and making a nuisance of herself. If her relatives show up, we may release her to them for proper care. If not, she will be charged to court and the court can determine her fate,” she said.
