Ify Otuya has cried out against her forced incarceration at a mental facility


Ify Otuya, a young lady who has been held captive - after being abducted by some men, including her family members, one of whom include Nollywood actor, Emeka Ossai - at the Nigerian Army Psychiatric Hospital in Lagos State, has not found her situation funny after being held at the mental facility for several weeks.

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."
