A middle-aged man, identified as Kayode Michael, who was on Wednesday apprehended by residents of the Danjuma area of Akure, the Ondo State capital, for allegedly picking women underwear and used sanitary pads, is to undergo a psychiatric test.
The man was almost lynched by the mob who caught him with a nylon bag containing female underwear as he was accused of planning to use them for rituals or sell them to ritualists.
The Public Relations Officer, Ondo State Command, NSCDC, Mr Oladapo Samuel, confirmed the incident, saying the suspect was still in the custody of the agency.
He explained that the relatives of the suspect had visited the command to say that he was mentally ill and that he was fond of picking refuse around the town.
He added that investigation had commenced into the matter and that the suspect would be subjected to a psychiatric test in order to determine the state of his mental health.
