A 22-year-old man, Chigozie Ugwu, who was paraded by the Anambra State Police Command for stealing 52 women’s underwear has given an incredible reason for indulging in the act.
He said he does it to satisfy his sexual urge.
Ugwu said this when he was paraded among other 15 suspected cult members and armed robbers at the state’s command headquarters last week.
According to Ogwu, he had no girlfriend and felt like he was having sexual intercourse any time he picks a woman’s pant.
Ogwu who pleaded that the police should release him, claimed he was not aware that his action was an offense until security operatives arrested him.
He said, “I didn’t know that it was an offence to take women’s pants. I don’t have any girlfriend. So, each time I am with any woman’s underwear, I feel like I am making love.
“That’s why I go about picking and keeping women’s pants. I didn’t know it was an offence until the police arrested me. Please, tell them to release me. I didn’t intend to steal those things. I think, it’s a spiritual problem,” he said.
Ogwu was also accused of burglary and stealing from a shop of items valued at N500,000 along Emma Nnaemeka Street in Awka, the state capital.
Parading the suspects, the state Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Ali Okechukwu, thanked the people of the state for availing the police of useful information that resulted in the successes recorded by the command.
