A suspected thief has been arrested after he broke in the home of a couple to steal but got carried away as he watched them have sex.
The thief identified as Mr. Uchenna Ebube allegedly broke into the home to steal the valuables of a couple but later abandoned his mission to watch the couple have sex in their bedroom. The couple live in Mercy Estate, Baruwa area of Ipaja, Lagos State.
According to reports from The Nation, the couple, Idris Olumo and his unnamed wife caught the suspect in their living room at about 4 am after they had sex.
Police claim, 25-year-old Ebube, a native of Abia State, who resides at Alaba area of Ojo Local Government, said he gained entrance into the couple’s apartment through the window in order to steal their valuables. He, however, waited for Idris and his wife to finish their sexual intercourse and sleep off so he could carry out his dastard mission.
While waiting, luck, however, ran out on him after Idris rushed to the living room immediately after he finished making love to his wife and caught the suspect.
Ebube has been handed over to the Ipaja Police Division and has since been arraigned before an Ejigbo Magistrate’s Court on a two-count charge of burglary and stealing.
Although he pleaded not guilty, the police prosecutor, Kenneth Asibor, urged the court to set a date for hearing, promising the Police would disprove the suspect’s claim of not being guilty. Magistrate, Mr. T.O Shomade, granted the suspect bail in the sum of N100,000 with two sureties in like sum. The matter was adjourned to November 13.
