Police in Katsina State have arrested a 31-year-old man identified as Usama Tijani for allegedly luring several ladies to hotels to have sex with them and rob them of their valuables.
The suspect, who lives in Dorayi Quarters in Gwale LGA of Kano State, was arrested following series of complaints from ladies in Katsina.
They reported that the man was deceiving young girls whom he came across through social media platforms by inviting them to hotels in various states, where he then proceeds to sleep with them before fleeing after stealing their phones, money and other valuables.
Parading the suspect before newsmen, Superintendent of Police, SP Isah Gambo said the suspect met his waterloo when he lured one of such girls, an indigene of Katsina to a hotel in Kano, with a promise to pay her N50k, but after spending a night with her, fled the hotel early hours of the morning while she was taking her bath.
Gambo said: “The suspect took with him the lady’s phone, money and other valuables. He continued his illegal dealings by using the victim’s stolen phones at different intervals to trick three of her friends and also lure them into hotels in Zaria, Kaduna State, using the same modus operandi. He equally stole their phones, money and other valuables as well.
“He has confessed to committing the offence and will be arraigned in court as soon as investigation is completed,” SP Isah said.
