A Nigerian living in Zimbabwe has been mercilessly beaten by two prostitutes who also stole his money. The man identified as Benjamin Chinedu Nworisa suffered a swollen eye during the encounter.
According to H-metro, two prostitutes identified as Florence Gwatidzo and Barbra Mandema whom he had met at Liz Night Club robbed him of US$3000 in the Avenues Area whilst the accused were on their way to another joint Tipperary’s Night Club located in the same locality.
The case was heard at the Harare magistrates’ court where Florence and Barbra appeared facing robbery charges. The two denied the charges when they appeared before magistrate Vongai Guwuriro.
Implicating them in the matter, the State led by Netsai Chandakaona alleges that last week Benjamin Nworisa went to have some drinks at Liz Night Club. While he was being driven in a cab, the taxi driver asked Benjamin Nworisa if he could allow him to pick Florence and Barbra who wanted to be dropped at Tipperary’s Night Club.
Upon reaching the Tipperary’s the taxi driver reportedly gave one of the two ladies US$10 for her to look for separate monies.
It was at that moment that the prostitutes attacked Nworisa with a brick injuring him in the eye and knocking him out. They searched him and took US$2 800, cell phone and other valuables.
The Nigerian national was picked by a Good Samaritan, Steven Tirivapasi who took him to Harare Central Police Station.
But, luck ran out on one of the prostitutes as he spotted Florence Gwatidzo at the police station where she was also lodging a complaint against him saying he had assaulted her.
She was arrested and later implicated Barbra.
