Yahoo Boys: Police React To Viral Video Of Lady Stripped Naked, Barking Like Dog

Published

on

The Ogun State Police Command has reacted to a viral video of a young lady who was naked and barking like a dog in a police cell in the state.

A video of the lady, whose name has yet to be identified, surfaced online on Friday.

The lady was said to have stripped herself and barked like a dog in the cell after she was alleged to have been spiritually and diabolically used by a suspected internet fraudster, popularly called Yahoo boy, in the state.

Reacting to the incident, the Ogun State Police Command, in a statement issued by its spokesman, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, said the young lady was brought to the police station naked, adding that she was acting violently, which made the police lock her in the cell.

Oyeyemi noted that the lady has since been taken to the hospital for treatment, noting that the alleged internet fraudster has been arrested by police operatives.

The police spokesperson stated: “She was brought into the police station naked and was very difficult to control because she was acting violently hence she was kept in the cell.

“Immediately she was brought to the station, her parents were contacted and she was taken to the hospital for medical attention with the help of the police, while the alleged Yahoo boy was immediately arrested for interrogation.

“The case which attracted multitude of people to the station was transferred to the State Criminal investigation department for discreet investigation on the order of Commissioner of Police, CP Lanre Bankole.

“The Command was surprised and embarrassed to see the video of the victim circulating on social media. 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.”

Oyeyemi added that the Ogun State Commissioner of Police, Lanre Bankole, has ordered an 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 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,” the police spokesman said.

Buhari Has ‘Renewed The Tenure Of DSS Boss’, Yusuf Bichi Amid Lingering Insecurity in Nigeria.

The tenure of the Director-General of the Department of State Services (DSS), Yusuf Bichi, has been extended by President Muhammadu Buhari.

Recall that Bichi was appointed in September 2018, following the retirement of the former head of the secret police, Matthew Seiyefa.

Sefiya, who headed the agency in an acting capacity from August 7, 2018, to September 14, 2018, handed over to Bichi following his appointment by President Buhari.

According to DAILY NIGERIAN, the President approved the extension of Bichi’s tenure for another four years after rejecting a number of candidates proposed to him.

It was said that Buhari wanted Bichi “to continue with the good job he is doing in intelligence gathering” instead of appointing a new head of the agency.

Confirming the development to the newspaper, the spokesman for the DSS, Peter Afunanya, said Bichi’s tenure has been renewed.

Profile of Bichi

Bichi attended Danbatta Secondary School, the Kano State College of Advanced Studies and the Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria where he graduated with a degree in Political Science.

He began his career in the security division of the Cabinet Office in Kano, from where he joined the defunct Nigerian Security Organization (NSO) before it became the present-day SSS.

The 66-year-old was appointed in September 2018 after retiring from service two years earlier to serve as the director-general of the service.

Emirates Suspends All Flights To Nigeria From September 1

Published

There are indications that the failure of Emirates Airlines to repatriate its trapped ticket sales fund in Nigeria back to its home country in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) may have led to the carrier’s decision to stop all flights in and out of the country.

The airline in a statement on Thursday morning said that it would suspend flights from Nigeria effective September 1, 2022.

At least, $600 million of over 20 foreign airlines has been blocked in Nigeria since the beginning of the year.

Emirates had about two weeks ago said that out of these funds, it had about $85 million in Nigeria.

The airline had on Monday cut its 11 weekly frequencies into Lagos Airport to just seven.

A statement by the media consultant to the airline in Nigeria alleged that all efforts to repatriate the funds had proved abortive and it was compelled to take the decision of suspending all flights into the country.

The airline’s statement on Thursday said: ”Emirates has tried every avenue to address our ongoing challenges in repatriating funds from Nigeria, and we have made considerable efforts to initiate dialogue with the relevant authorities for their urgent intervention to help find a viable solution.

”Regrettably, there has been no progress. Therefore, Emirates has taken the difficult decision to suspend all flights to and from Nigeria, effective September 1 2022, to limit further losses and impact on our operational costs that continue to accumulate in the market.

”We sincerely regret the inconvenience caused to our customers, however the circumstances are beyond our control at this stage. We will be working to help impacted customers make alternative travel arrangements wherever possible.

”Should there be any positive developments in the coming days regarding Emirates’ blocked funds in Nigeria, we will of course re-evaluate our decision. We remain keen to serve Nigeria, and our operations provide much needed connectivity for Nigerian travellers, providing access to trade and tourism opportunities to Dubai and to our broader network of over 130 destinations.”
