An 18-year-old man, Shamsu Abubakar, of Sayeko Maitumbi Road in Chanchaga Local Government Area, who disguises as a woman in hijab, caused a drama at the Niger state Police Command Headquarters when he confessed that men prefer him to real females.
According to him, he dabbled into the act of luring and exploiting men due to economic hardship.
“I started disguising and luring men due to the economic hardship in the country, I resorted to this act to make money and take care of my needs.
“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,” he said.
Abubakar, an indigene of Sokoto State who resides in Sayako community in Maitumbi said that he dressed in Hijab to attract the attention of randy men in the city. He continued:
“I always asked for money from men who make advances and even exchange telephone numbers with them for easy communication and each time they call me I am sure of getting between N1000 and N2000 for recharge card only.
“I have been in this business for over six months and most times I pretend to be selling soap on the streets of Minna so that men will call me and ask for friendship.”
The command’s Public Relations Officer, Mohammad Abubakar, revealed that the uspect was arrested when he constituted nuisance in the streets of Minna, Niger state.
