A lady has narrated how a robber, who invaded her home at the Badagry area of Lagos State, demanded sex because he couldn’t find valuables in her home.
The suspect, Idris Yusuf, a truck driver, was said to have scaled a fence in order to gain access into his victim’s apartment about 1a.m.
His victim, whose name was withheld, said: “I woke up about 1a.m. to find an unknown person in my kitchen, holding a knife. Unknown to me, he had been to my bedroom, where he collected my phone and the only N100 I had at home.
Immediately I asked who he was, he grabbed my hand and dragged me outside, threatening to kill me if I raised the alarm.
“On the way out, I discovered that the gate and my door were opened. I begged him not to hurt me, that the only thing I had was the N100 note and my phone. To my shock, he said I should allow him to have sex with me quietly since I had no money. At that p o i n t , I ran out and started screaming for help.”
S h e e x – plained that it was when she started screaming, calling for help, that she realised her neighbour, whose apartment the robber had earlier invaded, was frantically looking for him. “He was eventually caught and handed over to policemen at Badagry Division,” the victim added.
Yusuf told the police that he drives truck during the day and robs at night to augment his income. The state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), SP Chike Oti, who confirmed the story, said that the case would be further investigated.
