A nanny carried the severed head of a child in a Moscow subway station and yelled “Allahu Akbar” before she was arrested by the Russian police on Monday.
The Guardian reports the nanny was seen near Oktyabrskoye Pole station in north-western Moscow in video footage, dressed all in black and holding up the severed head of a child. She is heard yelling “for a terrorist, for your death” and “Allahu Akbar.”
Sources through media outlets named the nightmare nanny as 38-year-old Gyulchekhra Bobokulova.
Investigators say the nanny waited for the parents of the child to leave the apartment where the child lived before she allegedly committed the murder.
“Having waited for the parents to leave the flat with their older child, she killed the child for unknown reasons, set the flat on fire and fled.”
The body of a 3- or 4-year-old little girl was found in the burned out apartment.
“Given the clearly deranged behavior of the detainee, investigators swiftly ordered her to undergo psychiatric tests to establish whether she is capable of understanding the significance of her actions,” Moscow’s investigative committee’s statement read.
The nanny was illegally working in Moscow and was from the former Soviet republic of Uzbekistan, according to the immigration authorities. It was not clear who the nanny was working for while in Moscow, or how many children had been in the care of the disturbed nanny.
As the deranged nanny brandished the severed head of the child in the air at the Moscow subway, she claimed she had explosives on herself and would blow herself up.
One brave Russian police officer tackled the defiant nanny, then other Russian police joined to restrain the nanny. It was revealed that the nanny did not carry any explosives on her body. The nanny was arrested and taken into police custody. A bomb squad from the FSB security agency began working in the area where the crazed nanny was taken down.
The restrained nanny later told police she was upset because she was having problems with her husband.
Police originally encountered the nanny with the severed head of a child at the entrance to the subway. They wanted to check her documents, and the nanny pulled out the head of the child from her bag and began her tirade.
Witnesses were terrified and many ran away, thinking the subway was under a full blown terrorist attack because of the nanny’s horrific actions.
Reuters reported the deranged nanny screamed, “I am a terrorist, I want your death!”
Officials are on high alert in Russia for a possible terrorist attack after ISIS claimed responsibility for a Russian plane that was blown out of the sky last October, resulting in the death of all 224 people on the plane.
As for the nanny with the severed head of a child who yelled “Allahu Akbar” in the subway, investigators will have to figure out whether the nanny had any connections to terrorist groups, was inspired by a terrorist group, or what exactly happened to make the nanny from hell react in such a bizarre murderous rage.
