The Police in Lagos have arrested a 25-year-old man for luring a woman to a hotel in Lagos, where she was drugged and raped.
The two had earlier met on a social media platform.
Commissioner of Police, Edgal Imohimi said that the suspect invited the victim to De-Didos Hotel on March 4 where the crime was committed.
“The suspect was said to have stolen one Infinix Note 3 phone, one Nokia touch phone, one voter’s card and disappeared ever since.
“Based on this development, detectives investigating the case tapped into our robust partnership with community members and hoteliers in the area.
“They circulated the suspect’s details to hotels in the area and to all nooks and crannies of Ajangbadi.
“This paid off on May 25 when the suspect went to one of the hotels to lodge and he was promptly arrested by the operatives of the Command,” he said.
The CP further advised members of the public to be mindful of who they interact with on the social media.
“The youths should be wary of those luring them with promises of gift and better life and must always seek the advice of their parents at all times about people making promises to them”, he advised.
