Officials of the Lagos State Government have arrested a 21-year old man, Lateef Sulaiman, for allegedly scaling a 14-feet fence to gain entrance into the Lagos State Rehabilitation and Training Centre, Majidun area of Ikorodu, Lagos, southwest Nigeria, to have sex with a mad woman.
Sulaiman was said to have jumped into the female dormitory around 9.30 p.m. recently and had sex with a deranged woman before he was arrested and handed over to the taskforce at Alausa.
In his confessional statement at the taskforce headquarters, Sulaiman allegedly said he had had sex with a mad woman at the rehabilitation centre on five occasions before his arrest, saying that he knew where the female dormitory was because he had gone to the centre in the past to seek employment and had thoroughly studied the environment.
He was arraigned at the Special Offences Court, Alausa in Ikeja for his alleged offence
Sulaiman was slammed with a four-count charge. In the first count charge, he was said to have scaled the 14-feet fence of the rehabilitation home and slept with a mentally ill inmate and thus committed an offence punishable under the laws of Lagos State.
Having pleaded not guilty, he was granted bail in the sum of N50, 000 with two sureties who must be civil servants and present evidence of tax payment for five years.
Sulaiman could not meet the bail conditions and was remanded at the Badagry Prison.
Special Adviser to the Governor on Youth and Social Development, Dr. Dolapo Badru, lamented that there is a lot of satanic rituals going on in the society, wondering what could have made a young man scale the fence to sleep with a mad woman.
“It is this same satanic ritual that makes a herbalist to tell a man to bring the private part of somebody to be used for rituals without killing the person in order to get rich,” he said.
He said it is senseless and baseless for a man to want to sleep with a mad woman, thinking that his fortune in life would change for the better.
According to him, the only thing such a bizarre act could do to a man was to make him contract deadly diseases.
“This act is simply part of the activities of ritualists and a way to get money in a quick means. The case is in court,” he said.
