The Edo state police command has arrested 30-year old, Godstime Ogechi, who specialises in robbing prostitutes in Ugbiyoko, Egor local government area of the state.
A statement released from the command states that Ogechi is a one-man gang that uses a rod-like gun to rob call girls under the pretence of paying them to spend the night with him.
The police says Ogechi takes his victims to a dark street where he would bring out the rod and the girls thinking that it is a gun, would give him their phones and money including the one he paid them. .
Ogechi was arrested when he went to one of the brotherls to pick up a girl and the call girls in the brothel were able to recognise him.
When interrogated, Ogechi said he has lost count of the number of girls he has robbed. .
“I don’t have any gang. I operate along Ekenwan road. I pick street girls at night and rob them. I will chat with them and tell them I want to take them for daybreak. When we get to a dark corner, I will bring out this thing like a gun and threaten them. They will give me their phones. I cannot remember the number of girls I have robbed. I was caught when one of the girls ran away after I have paid her. I went back to the spot I picked her from and demanded for my money. She raised alarm.” he said
