Onlookers claimed that the man was under ‘spiritual attack’ while others said he could be on drugs.
The incident happened at about 2 pm around Chida Hotel junction, Daily Trust reports.
Onlookers in the area who were shocked by the incident claimed that the man was under spiritual attack while others said he could be on drugs.
“He alighted from a taxi, removed all his clothes including underwear, placed his phones on the clothes and started running,” a witness said on the condition of anonymity.
“After he returned to his senses, he hid behind a vehicle trying to cover himself until some fellows took his clothes to him,” he said, adding that the man confessed that that was not the first time something like that had happened to him.
“He left here about 15 minutes ago. But he was calm and sober having recovered from whatever had happened to him,” he said.

Another resident who simply identified himself as Bayo, said the case was not reported at any police station as the man said he was suffering from a condition that defied medical diagnosis.
He said when one of the sympathisers offered to take him to a pastor, he refused saying that he knows where to go for treatment.
