On Sunday, October 10, there was a drama on the main busy road in Ado-Ekiti, the capital of Ekiti State, when a young man suspected of being a “Yahoo Boy” went crazy in front of everyone.
The incident occurred on Sunday morning at the Fajuyi area along the bank road in Ado Ekiti.
The suspected Yahoo boy stripped himself naked and was making strange statements nobody could understand.
Eyewitnesses revealed that he had earlier parked his car by the roadside, emerged from the vehicle and removed his clothes one after the other.
Nobody knew where the guy, who is believed to be in his early 20s, came from before he started behaving abnormally.
He went ahead to remove his shirt, singlet and was stark naked, a scene which drew bystanders and passersby.
At intervals, the young man would kneel down and stand up singing some songs and making incoherent statements.
He later moved from one place to the other with some residents shaking their heads in disbelief while others were recording the drama with their mobile phones.
His action causes the disruption of traffic along the Bank road with some motorists and commercial motorcyclists parking their vehicles and bikes to behold the drama.
A good samaritan had tried to save the young guy by trying to tie his hand but he broke loose again and ran forward to continue the show.
An eyewitness said: “This is what we have been telling our young men that they should stop the mad pursuit of wealth.
“This guy that has just run mad showed traces of a Yahoo boy and the rituals they are into has backfired and the result is what we are seeing now.
“A good number of them have run mad and died in places like Ado and Ikere and this is a lesson to others who are into Yahoo scam and Yahoo Plus.”
