The Bayelsa State Police Command has arrested a 50-year-old man identified as Joseph Godfrey, who specialises in luring unsuspecting female job seekers to a hotel and sexually assaulting them, Punch reports.
A statement by the spokesman for the command, Asinim Butswat, said the suspect was apprehended by the operatives of SWAT in Yenagoa on Monday.
