Benue Police have arrested a man who disguised as a woman and work as a prostitute in Makurdi, the state’s capital.
The prostitute, who was addressed as Jennifer Kpaakpa, has a real identity of the man, Ushahemba Yaapera, and was arrested during a raid involving a case of N2,500 theft at a brothel along the railway bye-pass at high-level area of Makurdi metropolis.
The female DPO got suspicious that there is something unusual about the suspect since all others were female.
Suspect, 19-year-old, who hails from Katsina-Ala local government area, revealed that he was introduced to the ‘Mermaid’ business five years ago by her classmate, according to Punch.
He confessed, “For the past five years, I have operated like a woman. At night, I would stand on the road as a prostitute and men would pick me up at an agreed price.
“Usually, the female organ would manifest during my operations at night. But at day time, I will remain in my normal masculine state
“So far, I have slept with over 1000 men.”
State Commissioner of Police, Bashir Makama, who paraded the suspected impersonator alongside others for various crimes at the Command headquarters yesterday in Makurdi said the case is being investigated and that scientific test would be conducted on the suspect before he would be charged to court for unnatural offence.
