The complainants said accused Usama of deceiving young girls whom he meets through social media platforms and invites them to hotels in various states, where he beds them and flees after stealing their phones, money and other valuables.

Superintendent of Police, SP Isah Gambo, while parading the suspect before newsmen on Thursday, said nemesis, however, caught up with the suspect when he lured one of such girls, an indigene of Katsina to a hotel in Kano, with a promise to pay her N50k, but after spending a night with her, fled the hotel early hours of the morning while she was taking her bath.

“The suspect took with him the lady’s phone, money and other valuables. He continued his illegal dealings by using the victim’s stolen phones at different intervals to trick three of her friends and also lure them into hotels in Zaria, Kaduna State, using the same modus operandi. He equally stole their phones, money and other valuables as well.

He has confessed to committing the offence and will be arraigned in court as soon as investigation is completed,” SP Isah said.
