Woman claiming to be "Mad" caught with ATM and Sim Cards

This lady has been occupying a particular spot for over a year as a "mad woman". But certain items were found with her when the Nigeria Railway Corporation (NRC), attempted to evacuate her.

A railway official who spoke to New Telegraph on the saga, said the disclosure of the SIM and ATM cards and other items came to them as a surprise. His words:

"The woman has being living at the spot for some time now. Recently, a canteen was built close to the spot where she is sitting, but some people who patronise the canteen always complain about the presence of the woman. To our surprise, when we were about to evacuate her from the spot, about 25 SIM cards, two ATM cards, different bank tellers and a phone were recovered from her. 

"We don’t want another incident similar to that of Clifford Orji where human parts were recovered.
We suspect the woman has someone she is working for. We are going to hand her over to the task force because we don’t want to take chances. 

"The woman was behaving normally when we moved close to her, but suddenly she started putting up a strange behaviour and pretending to be a lunatic. We don’t see her to be what she is claiming."

Also, a trader in the area said she didn't trust the lady was a lunatic.

“She used to come to my shop to buy detergent to wash her clothes and to bathe. I was surprised when she started behaving strangely now. Whenever she comes to buy from me, she always comes with crisp N500 notes. 

“There was a day I closed late, I saw someone who parked beside the road and was discussing with the woman. But I did not hear what they were saying. Out of curiosity, I went to her the following day to ask her who the person was. She said those who come to visit her were her family members."

Another market woman wondered why the lady never asked for money from passers-by.

“We also want the police to beam their searchlight on that angle, because she was not soliciting alms from people. They should ask her where she is getting the money she is spending from, because we don’t want to lose our children in the market.”
