The Police in Anambra State have arrested four robbers who allegedly raided and raped two ladies in a hotel in the state.
The arrest came barely 24 hours after their operation.
The gunmen allegedly stormed the hotel on Sunday and made away with money and other valuables from the facility after raping two ladies.
A statement by the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Haruna Mohammed, confirmed the incident.
Mohammed said the hoodlums were arrested after the police saw the footage of the closed circuit television of the hotel.
The PPRO said, “On Monday, one Nwammadu Charles, of Prince Charles Hotel, Isuanuocha, in the Awka North Local Government Area of Anambra State, reported at the Mgbaku Police Out-station that around 1am, hoodlums climbed over the hotel fence and allegedly robbed some customers of their phones and other valuables.
“Preliminary investigation led to the arrest of four suspects with the aid of a CCTV camera installed by the hotel management.
“The case is under investigation and suspects are assisting the police with useful information that will aid investigation, after which those found wanting would be brought to book.”
Mohammed added that the state Commissioner of Police, John Abang, had urged hoteliers to, as a matter of urgency, install CCTV cameras on their premises.
