A 27-year-old lady and her male accomplice have been arrested by the police for robbing a Facebook friend of his valuables in Ogidi, Anambra State.
The prime suspect, Ogochukwu Onourah, was said to have lured the victim, Emerole Ikechukwu – who is her friend on Facebook – from #Imo State to Ogidi, where he was robbed of the sum of N17,000, his ATM card and other valuables.
The suspect had sent a commercial motorcyclist, who picked the victim on arrival, to the bush where he was robbed at gunpoint.
The Police spokesperson, Haruna Mohammed, said: “On 3/5/2019, at about 2:15 pm, one Emerole Ikechukwu reported at Ogidi Police Station that a female Facebook friend lured him from Imo State to Ogidi.
