On Thursday, police agents in Ilorin, Kwara State, apprehended a suspected ritualist masquerading as a’mad woman,’ simply named as Ebun Oluwa.
Residents of the neighborhood where she lives, outside Royal Palm School, Kulende-Zango quarters in Ilorin city, are said to have arrested her.
According to the reports, at around 2 a.m., an unknown man driving a Jeep automobile paid a visit to the fake madwoman who lives across the street from the school for an unspecified errand.
The appearance of the unidentified guy at strange hours of the night piqued the interest of locals in the vicinity as well as the vigilante group, which repeatedly contacted the woman without receiving a response.
He was pursued after numerous bullets were fired at the Jeep automobile, but he fled.
During a search of the fake mad woman’s abode, an unspecified amount of naira cash, children’s school uniforms, bags, books and assorted raw food were discovered by the angry residents and vigilante group.
The woman who had been living in the area for the past two years undetected was rescued from the mob by the Kulende-Zango police division and later whisked away to the state police command headquarters in Ilorin.
Angry residents, however, destroyed the large quantities of raw food found at the woman’s abode following the failed attempt to lynch her.
Spokesman of the state Police Command, Mr Okasanmi Ajayi, in Ilorin on Thursday confirmed the arrest of the woman, describing her as a ‘suspected ritualist’ who appears to be mentally unbalanced.
Okasanmi said she was arrested by the men of Kulende-Zango Divisional Police headquarters, Ilorin in conjunction with members of the community.
” Intelligence available to the command prompted the surveillance mounted around the area which was the base of the ritualist, led to her arrest today 17/03/2022 at about 0600hours.
” In the process of her arrest, a man in a black SUV Jeep found with the suspect zoomed off immediately he noticed the presence of the police.”
