The Anambra State Police Command has apprehended a certain man for stealing 52 women’s underwear.
22-year-old Chigozie Ugwu, who was paraded by the state police, said he indulges in the act to satisfy his sexual urge.
The suspect, who had no girlfriend, admitted that he felt like he was having sexual intercourse any time he picks a woman’s pant, even as he pleaded that the police should release him.
Speaking to Southern City News, Ugwu 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.”
It was gathered that Ugwu was among the 15 suspected cult members and armed robbers paraded at the state’s command headquarters last week.
During the embarrassing exhibition of 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.
