According to, the man walked into the Automated Teller Machine along Okpe Road in Sapele, Delta State and suddenly started behaving abnormally.

The bizarre incident happened in the morning and drew a lot of people to the scene who jostled to catch a glimpse of the young man.

A witness who pleaded anonymity has been quoted as saying: “He walked into the ATM box and the next thing we saw was Jeffrey shouting on top of his voice. He starting pulling his clothes and talking gibberish, that was what attracted passers-by to the scene.”

Another witness identified as Onyokpe told newsmen that Jeffery “has this high fever I know his parents have been treating, so I think this is what is worrying him.”

Interestingly, instead of attending to the poor man, bystanders resorted to shouting, “Ghana Burger!” Ghana Burger!”, another name for an internet fraudster also known in Nigeria as Yahoo boy.

Eventually, some people arrested Jeffery and tied him before his family arrived and drove him away in a blue Toyota Camry.

Due to the upsurge in internet fraud and ritual money seeking, anybody who suffers any abnormality in Nigeria is suspected to have indulged in one evil act or the other.
