The police in Abuja have arrested a married prison official on a charge of theft after he was accused of not paying up for the services of a prostitute whom he had contracted. The 37-year-old father of three, Elias Okorie, allegedly had sex with the prostitute and afterwards, refused to pay her.
According to the police, Okorie had discussed with the prostitute when he arrived the brothel and agreed to pay her N2, 000 for her services. However, he only offered N1, 000 after the show; this did not go down well with the sex worker who then engaged Okorie in a scuffle.
Okorie told police that he refused to pay the prostitute because she stole his wedding ring and an undisclosed amount of money from his wallet. The woman denied the allegations.
During the fight, Okorie, who is a prison officer at the Nigerian Prison Service in Enugu State, reportedly broke a television and loud speakers. He has been charged with theft, damage to property and assault.
