A man who robbed a prostitute after a night of sex, has been remanded in prison.
34-year-old Uche Okpara, has been remanded at the Kirikiri Prison by an Isolo Magistrates' Court, for allegedly robbing a commercial sex worker, Caroline Ibrahim, of the sum of N90,000 after he spent the night in her brothel room located at Aborishade Street, Lawanson area of Lagos State.
Abia State born Okpara's journey to prison began on December 30, 2015, when he approached the Edo State born prostitute for an all night sex and they both agreed for the sum of N5,000 for the night.
But after a long night of raunchy sex, Ibrahim reportedly became weak and slept off only to wake up the following morning to discover that her customer had disappeared with all her money, including the N5,000 he had paid her the night before.
The distraught woman reported the case at the Itire Police Division and after a thorough investigation, the suspect who had gone into hiding, was arrested and charged to court with stealing under the criminal code.
According to Ibrahim, Okpara was the last client she intended to have before travelling to her village as she hoped to use the stolen money to start another business and put an end to prostitution and settle down to marry.
When the charges were read to him, Okpara pleaded not guilty and the presiding Magistrate, Mrs. A.K. Shonubi, granted him bail in the sum of N20,000 but ordered that he be remanded in prison custody pending when he will perfect his bail while adjourning the matter till January 18, 2016, for trial.
