The Lagos State Police Command has arrested one Ifeanyi Odieze Ezenagu for allegedly robbing six women of their belongings.

Benjamin Hundeyin, spokesperson of the Command, made this known in a statement on Saturday.

According to the statement, the 34-year-old suspect was nabbed by detectives of the Surulere Division.

Ezenagu was said to have lured the unsuspecting women to a hotel where he laced their drinks, resulting in their falling into a deep slumber.

Afterwards, he robbed his victims of their belongings, including 3 iPhones 12, 2 iPhones 11 Pro Max, 1 iPhone XR, one Nokia phone, one wristwatch and one gold necklace, with a total value of N2,368,000.

“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 statement read in part.

“While the stolen items have all been recovered before he could dispose of them, investigation is on to apprehend receivers of stolen items he works with. Suspects will be arraigned at the end of investigation.”

Hundeyin added that the Commissioner of Police in Lagos, CP Abiodun Alabi assured all residents of the state that the police would continue to work towards the decimation of crime and criminality in the centre of excellence.
