Woman who kidnapped two siblings at Mushin market goes mad in prison

A female suspect in the custody of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, Yaba, Lagos State, has been taken by the police to the Federal Neuro-Psychiatric Hospital, Yaba, to determine her state of health. The suspect, whose name had yet to be ascertained, was arrested after two missing siblings were found with her in Ojuwoye Market, Mushin.

It was learnt that the suspect had been creating confusion at the SCIID. She was said to have stripped naked on numerous occasions, including the times she was taken out of her cell to give her statement to the police.

According to Punch, it was gathered that she also attacked other suspects in her cell, which made the authorities at the SCIID to move her to a solitary cell. A source at the SCIID said that at the solitary cell, the suspect continued to strip herself naked 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.

It was gathered that the police at the SCIID decided to take the woman to the neuro-psychiatric hospital to determine whether she was acting or her ailment was real. Punch Metro learnt that doctors at the hospital, after reportedly ascertaining that she was mentally unstable, told the police to bring her back on Thursday, September 15, for a proper test.

The suspect was mobbed last week while allegedly attempting to flee with two siblings, identified as Hammed Rasheed (6), and Farida Raheed (2), when their mother, Simbiat, was attending to a customer.
