The Rivers State Police Command has arrested one Mr Favour Ibama, for allegedly drugging, raping, and robbing over 20 young ladies after luring them on social media with enticing promises.
A spokesperson for the state police command, SP Nnamdi Omoni, disclosed this while parading the suspect at the command’s headquarters in Port Harcourt on Thursday. Omoni claimed that the suspect lured his victims with mouth-watering promises after meeting them on social media, adding that he drugged and stole from the women after raping them.
SP Omoni stated that the suspect was arrested when he was spotted at a popular supermarket at Ada George, Port Harcourt, by one of his recent victims who raised an alarm that attracted passers by who apprehended him and handed him over to the Police.
In a chat with PM News, some of the victims explained that after days of chatting with him on social media, he books a date with them in a hotel where he drugs their food, and after they consume the food they will fall asleep only to wake up to discover that he slept with them and made away with all their belongings.
Two of the victims revealed that he transferred N135,000 and 185,000 naira respectively from their phones while they were fast asleep. Meanwhile, the suspect Mr Ibama denied the allegation in an interview with journalists.
He, however, admitted making love to his victims after enticing them with enticing amounts of money but never fulfilled his promises, blaming his action on the “devil, idleness and cashes on the greed of his victims. He denied stealing any of their properties or withdrawing money from their accounts.
He confessed in an interview that his wife just gave birth to in January is already threatening to divorce him because of his randy lifestyle and alleged criminal tendencies. On why he doesn’t pay his victims as agreed, he said:” You know after s*x there’s the tendency to get tired. Like the last girl, I left her in the hotel bed and bolted away while she was fast asleep.”
