Rapid Response Squad Arrests Two Suspects Who Pose On Social Media As Modelling Agents To Lure Young models And Rob Them

Two suspects, Stanley Odachi, 27 and Chuks Oragwu, 31 who have been posing on social media as models recruiting agents, luring young models to hotels and bars and dispossessing them of money and personal belonging, have been arrested by the operatives of Rapid Response Squad, RRS  in Igando, Alimosho, Lagos. 

 About five girls have registered their complaints with the Decoy Team of the RRS that the suspects absconded with their mobile phones and money under the pretext of registering them for modelling jobs while four other young models refused to press charges.

About  Two other victims stated that they were having examination in school and could not make formal complaint. All the suspects, who are still in and out of school stated that they encountered the suspects on Instagram through the advertisements on their handles requesting young models to enlist with their agency for modelling contract.

The victims added that they were subsequently asked to report at hotels, where they were made to surrender their mobile phones, which the suspects escaped with.

Commenting on the development, the Commissioner of Police, CP Hakeem Odumosu advised Lagosians to be cautious about the kind of business transactions they engage in on social media, especially with strangers and unconfirmed sources. He added that Lagos would not be a breeding ground for criminals. 

The two suspects have been transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID) for further investigations and prosecution
