A nanny accused of decapitating a young girl in her care then walking through the street brandishing the head, Wednesday said “Allah ordered” the killing as she appeared at a Moscow court.
Suspect Gyulchekhra Bobokulova from Muslim-majority Uzbekistan — whom the press have dubbed “the bloody nanny” – was detained Monday as she was waving the child’s severed head outside a metro station in northwestern Moscow. She was sent for psychiatric examinations.
“It was what Allah ordered,” the 38-year-old told journalists as she was brought into the district court to have her arrest confirmed and extended.
With shoulder-length black hair parted in the center, she wore a royal blue pinafore over a black tracksuit top.
At times, she smiled, other times she grimaced, flashing a few golden teeth.
Speaking in broken Russian from the suspect’s cage, Bobokulova said: “Allah is sending a second prophet to give news of peace” and also complained that she was “hungry”, had not been fed and would “die in a week”.
