Girl lures man to Osun, robs him of N1.5m.



The Police Command in Osun has arrested a 17-year-old girl who allegedly lured her victim from Lagos to Osun through social media.

The Command Spokesperson, SP Yemisi Opalola, made this known on Tuesday in Osogbo.  Opalola said the teenager lured the victim to Ikire in Irewole Local Government Area on June 28.

According to her, the girl arranged with other suspects and allegedly robbed the man of his phone, which they used to transfer N1.5 million from his bank account.

“On June 28, at about 1.30 p.m, a complainant reported at Ikire Police Division that he met one girl (name withheld) on social media, and they started chatting. “He added that the girl later invited him to Osun from Lagos State.

“He stated further that when he came to Ikire, the girl lured him to her boyfriend’s house, where he met some unscrupulous elements who attacked him and collected his phone, which they used to transfer the sum of N1.5 million from his account,” she said.

The police spokesperson added that immediately after the case was reported, police detectives swung into action and arrested the suspect and one Ariyo Ayobami at their hideout.

She said the preliminary investigation also led to the arrest of another accomplice while efforts were on to arrest other suspects.

Opalola also said officers of the command on July 10 arrested two suspects in Ilorin, Kwara, in possession of a car stolen at gunpoint from a complainant’s residence in Osun.

She said that the victim, on May 11, reported that he was attacked by three men armed with guns and other dangerous weapons at his residence.

The hoodlums dispossessed him of his valuables and two Toyota Camry cars valued over N12.46 million.

Opalola said intelligence gathering after that led detectives of the command to Ilorin, where one Abdulwasiu Jato and Kolawole Iwalaye were arrested for possessing one of the stolen cars.

She said that another suspected stolen car, a Toyota Corolla 2012 model, was found in their possession.

Opalola said six other armed robbery suspects terrorising motorists at Aba-Ede Junction on the Osu-Ile-Ife highway were also arrested on July 9 by the command’s Anti-Kidnapping Squad.

The command spokesperson said all the suspects would be charged in court after completing the investigation.
