Police arrest robber of commercial sex workers in Edo


The Police in Edo State at the weekend arrested a 30-year old man identified as God’stime Ogechi, who specialises in robbing commercial sex workers at Ugbiyoko Community in Egor Council Area of the state.

Parading the suspect at the police command, Edo State Police Commissioner, Danmallam Mohammed, said the suspect is a one-man gang that uses a rod-like gun to rob call girls while pretending to pay them for spending the night with him.

“When he takes them to a dark street, 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.

“But luck ran out of him when one of his victims ran away when they got to a dark street at Ugbiyoko area and when Ogechi went back to collect the money he paid her for the night, some of the girls recognised him, which led to his arrest,” Mohammed explained.

Ogechi, who confessed to the crime, said he has lost count of the number of girls he has robbed saying, “I don’t have any gang. I operate along Ekenwan Road. I pick street girls at night and rob them. I usually chat with them and tell them that 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 where I picked her from and asked for my money. She raised alarm,” Ogechi said.
