woman. When I asked what was wrong, they said they found three
phones and N100,000 with the her. They said the woman was not

also wondered where a mad woman could have found the phones,” he
“The notorious cannibal, Clifford Oji, used to parade himself as a mad

until they conclude their investigations.
