The Rivers State Police Command has arrested one Mr Favour Ibama, a nursing father for allegedly drugging, raping, and robbing over 20 young ladies, after luring them on social media with enticing promises and everlasting love.
Spokesman of the state police command, Nnamdi Omoni, disclosed this while parading the suspect who is a father-of-four, at the command’s headquarters in Port Harcourt.
The police spokesman claimed that the suspect lured his victims with mouth-watering promises after meeting them on social media, adding that he drugged and stole from the women after raping them.
He stated that the suspect was arrested when he was spotted at a popular supermarket at Ada George area of Port Harcourt, by one of his recent victims who raised an alarm that attracted passers by who apprehended him and handed him over to the Police.
Some of the victims disclosed that after days of chatting with him on social media, he books a date with them in a hotel where he drugs their food, and after they consume the food they will fall asleep only to wake up to discover that he slept with them and made away with all their belongings.
Two of the victims revealed that he transferred N135,000 and N185,000 respectively from their phones while they were fast asleep.
The suspect, however denied the allegation of stealing any of their properties or withdrawing money from their accounts but admitted making love to his victims after enticing them with huge amounts of money but never fulfilled his promises.
Ibama who blamed his action on the devil, idleness and that he cashes on the greed of his victims also confessed in an interview with journalists that his wife who just gave birth in January, is already threatening to divorce him because of his randy lifestyle and alleged criminal tendencies.
On why he doesn’t pay his victims as agreed, he said:” You know after sex there’s the tendency to get tired. Like the last girl, I left her in the hotel bed and bolted away while she was fast asleep.”
