A budding female artiste has cried out after her family members abducted her and confined her to a psychiatric hospital in Lagos without her consent.
Otuya, a budding singer and a graduate of the University of Lagos and the London Metropolitan University, who claims she is not mentally deranged, has cried out to well-meaning Nigerians to come to her aid.
She took to her Facebook wall to send out this passionate appeal:
"I'm currently being held at a psychiatric hospital in Yaba by Ambode's police and Emeka Ossai (and other men in my family), against my will. Isn't Lagos fun???!!!! Lmao
Hey, world!! For those looking for me, I was abducted to Nigerian Army Reference Hospital ('A' ward, Psychiatric ward) opposite WAEC, Yaba Lagos.
I'm still being held here against my will, even after 4 weeks! If there's still a responsible press in this country, you now know where to find me.
They're denying me access to my lawyer. Come and visit me friends - I would love to talk to you. Anybody with access to my father, Terry Otuya, should please remind him about law and order."
"Remind him I am being incarcerated here AGAINST My WILL! Thanks and lots of love, Ify."
