A suspected robber, who was arrested by security operatives has confessed to the police in his statement that he had s*x with his male victim to get some magical powers.
20-year-old suspected robber identified as Ebere Nwankwo has been arrested by the Lagos State Police Command for allegedly attacking and r*ping a male victim in the Lekki area of the state.
According to Punch Metro, the suspect who after dispossessing his victim, Martins, of the sum of N22,000, allegedly had anal s*xual intercourse with the victim.
In the Lekki incident which occurred last Thursday, Nwankwo who was armed with a gun, sneaked into Martins’ apartment on Goshen Estate in the Lekki area at about 4pm, ransacked the victim’s room and found N22,000.
He thereafter allegedly ordered 16-year-old Martins to get on the bed, while he had s*xual intercourse with him.
Speaking to a correspondent, an eyewitness said the victim’s screams during the intercourse alerted the security operatives from the Maroko Police Division, who were on a patrol in the area.
He said, “The robber had threatened to force his victim to an Automated Teller Machine, where he would get more money from him. In the meantime, the suspect asked his victim to lie on the bed and he started having sexual intercourse with him.
“Some policemen, who were patrolling the estate, heard screams from an apartment and they drew close. When they forced the door open, the suspect and the victim were found having anal s*x.”
It was gathered that the robber confessed to the police in his statement that he had s*x with his victim to get some magical powers.
The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Dolapo Badmos, said the robbery suspect would be charged to court with sodomy and stealing.
