Lagos Police Arrest Serial Thief Who Invites Women On Blind Dates, Drugs And Robs Them.
Detectives of Surulere Division of the Lagos State Police Command have arrested 34-year-old Ifeanyi Odieze Ezenagu, who invites women for a date and lures them to different hotels where he drugs and robs them.
The suspect is said to have robbed over 30 women since he ventured into this crime.
He was arrested after allegedly robbing six women of three iPhones 12, two iPhones 11 Pro Max, one iPhone XR, one Nokia phone, one wristwatch, and one gold necklace with a total value of N2,368,000 after he lured them to a hotel, where he laced their drinks and they fell into a deep slumber.
“Preliminary investigations reveal that the suspect has no fixed address but lures women to different hotels where he drugs and robs them clean. Investigations further reveal that he has robbed over thirty women since he ventured into this crime. The stolen items had all been recovered before he could dispose of them. An investigation is on to apprehend receivers of stolen items he works with,” the State Police Spokesperson, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, said in a statement on Saturday.
While the suspects would be arraigned at the end of the investigation, the State Commissioner of Police, CP Abiodun Alabi, has assured all residents that the Command will continue to work towards the decimation of crime and criminality in the State.
