The suspect was nabbed by a bus passenger on Monday at about 7:30am at the Oriolori area of Ikire.
She was speaking to someone on phone and her conversation was said to be in a low tone. This raised suspicion as the bus passenger who stood close to her raised the alarm after the mad woman was alleged to have said in Yoruba ‘Omo Obirin kekere shi wa pelu iya re. Mo nwo na,’ meaning ‘The little girl is still with her mother, I am watching her.’
An emerging irate mob, upon listening to the passenger’s explanation, pounced on the lady. She was said to have tried to run away after she was noticed to be sane.
The suspect was beaten and almost lynched but for the intervention of policemen. The police is yet to comment on the incident, it was said that the suspect was handcuffed and taken away in police van.
