According to PM News, 22-year old vulcanizer, Akin Abayomi was found stark naked at Tafawa
Balewa Square, TBS, Marina, Lagos, around 12 midnight when Governor
Babatunde Fashola of Lagos State was driving by with his convoy.
Thinking he was a mad man, Fashola ordered his security aides to pick him up for rehabilitation.
The man was taken to the State House, Marina where he was housed for the night. Then the governor sent for the Special Adviser on Youth and Social Development, Dr. Dolapo Badru to rehabilitate him.
But during examination, Abayomi confessed that he was not a mad man. It turned out that he had stripped himself in the middle of the night on
the road because he wanted to curse the person who stole his cell phone
and his money.
PMNews reports Abayomi had visited a herbalist in his quest for revenge
against the person who stole his cell phone and money and was instructed
to carry out the act in order to curse his enemy, which was why he was
naked in the middle of the night.
Mr Badru said:
“After I picked him up from the State House, he said he was not a mad
man, but says he drinks and smokes marijuana and that he is an
apprentice in a vulcanizing workshop. He said he bought a phone and that
somebody stole the phone.
After we investigated for two weeks to know his family, we realised that
the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, an arm of the Holy Cross Cathedral,
is also interested in rehabilitating him.’
Badru disclosed that the governor released N100,000 to Abayomi to start
up his own vulcanizing business as well as bought him a phone and asked
the church to monitor his progress.
Abayomi said the governor has really changed his life, saying that if
Fashola had not picked him up, he would not have completed his
apprenticeship training to become a successful vulcaniser.
