A 26-year old robbery suspect and a graduate of University of Nigeria, Nsukka, Anthony Olanrewaju, who reportedly used $exy ladies to trap victims and robbed them at gun point, has been arrested by the police.
The suspect, who claimed to have a Degree in Economics from University of Nigeria, Nsukka before he went into private business at Computer Village in Ikeja, was arrested by the operatives of State Anti Robbery Squad, SARS led by CSP Ahmed Sanusi.
The Ogun State-born Olanrewaju was arrested at a popular hotel in Ikeja where he was spending his loot. He was interrogated, reportedly confessed and took the police to a criminal hideout in the Agege area where he used as his base.
Sources gathered that the police recovered from the suspect three locally made pistols, cutlasses, axes, mobile phones and other dangerous weapons which he used for operations.
The suspects claimed that he used to hide at Computer Village in the day and moved out with some women in the night to trap victims and rob them.
He revealed his style of operation which he said was unique to him alone and the women he used for the operations were trained by him.
Olanrewaju allegedly confessed that he fronted those women to approach young rich men and lured them into $ex.

A Police source told our correspondent that the police was making efforts to arrest those women who were said to be on the run after the arrest of Olanrewaju.
