The Lagos State Government has remanded a the viral amputee who has generated a lot of sympathy in the tune of N25 million for putting up a fake story to generate funds from unsuspecting Nigerians.

The viral amputee known as Mary Daniel was filmed hawking pure water in Oshodi, Lagos few weeks ago. She narrated that she lost a leg in an accident that killed all passengers, including her parents when she was a teenager, a story which has now been discovered to be false, The Nation reported.

Daniel who became a sensation after her story went viral saw the good side of Nigerians as many trooped in to support her, knowing well that she is physically disadvantaged.

According to her story, as said in an interview, she claimed that she was an orphan with a baby and an aged grandmother to fend for.

She narrated how life dealt her several blows and she had to drop out of school and hit the streets to make ends meet.

Following her harrowing tales, Nigerians started donating money through her bank account made public with about N25m raised.

This prompted the state government to immediately shelter her to prevent criminals from taking advantage of her sudden fortune.

Few days ago, she was honored with a photoshoot where she was well catered for and snapped in high quality makeup.

The Lagos State Government however discovered on Thursday that her father, who she claimed was dead, is still very much alive.

It was also discovered that she was amputated from birth and not as a result of an accident.

In further investigation by the State Government, it was gathered that she was receiving strange calls from those who staged her story with threats to reveal the truth unless she gave them their share of the money

The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu told The Nation the young woman was in the custody of officials of the Social Welfare.

He said: “The police were there but she was not handed over to us. She was handed over to the Social Welfare. There were irregularities and lies in the account of her life she gave.

“It was discovered that contrary to her claim that her parents died during an accident that left her amputated, it was discovered that her father is very much alive and that she was amputated from birth.

“It was also discovered that her presence in Oshodi was staged. Those working with her played on the intelligence of Nigerians to get donations for her.

“It came to light when the people started threatening her. She promised some N500,000 others different amounts and was planning to return to her home state when the information leaked.

“I had to attach some policemen to her to prevent any attack on her when she went to the bank. We suspected those people might follow her but everything went well as they were not seen.

“Presently, the state government is preventing her from accessing the money.

“The government does not want a situation where it will become a trend for people to cook up stories, manipulate the people to get donations,” Odumosu explained.

Rape Scandal: Baba Ijesha Set For Release Defilement As Case Hasn’t Been Established — Police source

Nollywood Actor, Olanrewaju Omiyinka aka Baba Ijesha is set to be released from police custody due to the ongoing strike by members of the Judicial Staff Union of Nigeria, which has made it impossible for the courts to sit.

According to a report by Punch Newspaper, a senior police in Lagos State revealed that a directive has been issued to release him within the next 24 hours as the suspect could not be detained indefinitely without trial.

According to the source: “There was no case of defilement, people are just talking out of sentiment. They are not talking from the point of law. We interviewed all parties involved in the case for three hours today (Wednesday).

The mother complained that her child was at the age of seven when she was defiled and the child pointed at Baba Ijesha. But the case was not reported until she was 14 years and under the law, the case has become statute-barred.

Regarding this new case, the CCTV footage has been assessed and nowhere was it captured that Baba Ijesha defiled her. The footage only showed him touching the victim’s body but it never showed him having any sexual intercourse with the girl.

The girl also confirmed the same thing. So, in law, it is a case of indecent assault and not sexual harassment, and it is open to bail. So, can we continue to keep him when the offence is subject to bail and when there is no court sitting?

That is against his fundamental human rights and the police do not work on sentiments. Directives have been given out for his release on bail.”

The statement released by the Command’s Public Relations Officer, Olumuyiwa Adejobi on Wednesday, April 21 confirmed the report.

According to the report, on April 19, 2021, one Princess Adekola Adekanya reported the case of defilement at the Sabo Police Station and was transferred to the Gender Unit of the state CID for further investigation.

The report further revealed that the suspect, Baba Ijesha confessed defiling the teenager as there was CCTV footage to support the accusation.
