Shamsu Abubakar, an 18-year-old boy, disguising as a lady and arrested by Police in Minna, Niger State, said he has defrauded many men who he had seduced with feminine antics.
He was arrested dressed up in a long hijab, wrapper, makeup and a pair of female leather slippers and handbag to match.
Shamsu, who resides in Sayako community along Maitumbi Road, Minna, confessed that he had been in the trade for months and had succeeded in duping a lot of men.
Shamsu disclosed that he was selling toilet soaps and detergents on the streets of Minna for months before going into the new trade, which he said is “more lucrative, but dangerous.”
According to the suspect, “I am a secondary school leaver and my business name is Maryam. My main business is just to parade myself on the street, disguised as a lady and always ask for money from such men that stopped me and approached me for friendship.
If they insisted on seeing me later, I always exchanged telephone numbers with them and requested for between N200 and N500 from such men. I have succeeded with many of them.
I have cleverly been rejecting all advances towards taking me to any hotel or their houses knowing well that I will be exposed. So we normally end our business transactions on the major streets and in the cars. I postpone our meeting till another day.
I use to lure and exploit men with my makeup, and the way I package myself. I am even surprised that, the men in Minna preferred me to real girls. I really don’t like what I am doing but it is the economic hardship which makes it difficult for me to see food on my table and that pushed me into this act.”
