Operatives of the Ogun State Police Command say they have arrested an alleged Internet fraudster popularly known as Yahoo boy over a viral video of his lover barking like dog.
The lady was alleged to have been spiritually and diabolically used by the suspected yahoo boy, as a result of which she started barking like dog.
The lady whose name was not mentioned was seen barking in the video and acting violently before she was restrained in a police cell.
The state command condemned the shooting of the video of the lady who was in distress, and had vowed to unravel those who were behind its production.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, SP Abimbola Oyeyemi, made this known in a statement on Friday.
The statement read partly:
“The attention of Ogun State Police Command has been drawn to a viral video of a young lady who was naked and barking like dog in a police cell.
“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 dog.
“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 Yahooboy was immediately arrested for interrogation.”
He said the Command was surprised and embarrassed to see the video of the victim circulating on social media, adding that 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.
Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police, 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.
“It is barbaric, uncivilized 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 statement further indicated.
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.
