Police detectives, Lagos State Police Command, have arrested a woman for allegedly stealing a gold chain worth N650,000, and hiding it in her vagina.
According to police sources, the woman, identified as Tessy Emovon, 26, allegedly stole the chain from 26-year-old Cosmas Odijie, on November 24, 2013, Sunday, in a hotel located at Ipodo Market, off Obafemi Awolowo Way, Ikeja, after giving him a sleeping drug.
Odijie paid N3,000 to Tessy, to spend the night with her. The sex worker allegedly used a drug called Rohypnol, when the guy complained of being tired.
The prostitute assured him that the drug would boost his energy and sex drive.
The main effect of Rohypnol is to make a person sedated, euphoric, uninhibited. The person may slur his speech and look sleepy. Rohypnol is a banned drug in the USA. It is in the same class with Ecstasy, ketamine, LSD and ephedrine. Some undesirable effects which may appear include weakness, headache, difficulty breathing, nausea, unconsciousness, confusion, difficulty seeing clearly.
The victim told the police in his statement that after taking the drug, he slept off and woke up around 3.30 a.m. on November 25, 2013, Monday, to discover that his gold chain was missing.
“After regaining consciousness, I discovered that my gold chain was missing, and when I challenged Tessy, she denied stealing the chain. This led to argument and I had to inform the manager of the hotel,” he told the police.
The manager reported the incident to the police at Area ‘F’ police division, Ikeja, and Tessy was arrested and detained for two days.
She was arrested again by SARS officers as she was released from detention on the third day following a report by Martins Odijie, 33, elder brother to Cosmas, who told detectives that he actually owned the stolen gold chain.
The SARS officers took her to their office at the headquarters of the Lagos Police Command for further interrogation.
During interrogation, she confessed to the crime, adding that she wrapped the chain in a tissue paper which she inserted in her private part.
She told the police that the chain was still in her private part. Following her revelation, some female police officers from SARS accompanied her to the hotel where she removed the chain from her private part.
A police source confirmed that she would be charged to court soon for stealing.
