The Ogun State Commissioner of Police on Monday paraded a 32-year-old hairdresser, Miss Biodun Bamgboye, who specializes in seducing men and afterwards sends armed robbers after them.
Until her arrest by men of the Ogun State Police, Miss Biodun who resides at Abiola Way, Abeokuta, the state capital, was an alleged informant for a gang of robbers specializing in snatching vehicles.
Miss Biodun was paraded alongside 10 other armed robbery suspects who were arrested in various parts Ogun State.
The Police Commisioner, Mr. Nicholas Nkemdeme, who said that some incriminating items were found on the suspects, added that the police command recovered five vehicles and two motorcycles from them.
According Nkemdeme, Biodun and her boyfriend, Maruf (who is still at large), used to set up men and thereafter rob them of their vehicles.
Nkemdeme said, “The lady, Biodun Bamgboye, first tried to be friendly with her victims, who were usually men riding big cars. So, when she went out with such men, she would phone her accomplices to come and snatch the car.
“The gang has been doing this for a while now, terrorising innocent citizens and dispossessing them of their belongings. Fortunately, our men were able to arrest them. They will be charged to court on completion of investigation.”
Miss Biodun blamed her boyfriend for coercing her into the crime through an oath.
“My boyfriend, Maruf, who lived at Obantoko area, Abeokuta, introduced me to this. We have been in the relationship for over one and half years now.
“I warned him against crime but he forced me into the robbery after saying that I will die if I don’t comply with him because of the oath we swore to.” Miss Biodun said.
