Man Posing As ‘Female’ Sex Worker Arrested In Jos
A 25-year old man who poses as a female prostitute has landed himself in trouble in Jos, the Plateau state capital.
The Plateau Police Command told newsmen they arrested him 2 days ago at the popular Gwom Guest House, Hwolshe, at about 9:30 pm.
It happened that the hotel management alerted the police that someone is lodging in their hotel who poses as a woman but with physical features of a man.
The police command therefore mobilised their men and he was accosted before he was taken into police custody.
The Plateau State police command’s spokesman, ASP Terna Tyopev described the suspect as a “habitual homosexual’.
He said that in 2016, he was arrested by soldiers but returned to his normal business after he was released.
He said the suspect, who usually disguised as a female prostitute, had lured many men in need of sexual satisfaction.
The spokesman described the suspect’s activities as ‘criminal’, adding that he was being thoroughly investigated.
“In the first instance, posing as someone you are not to deceive the public is criminal because only God knows how many men must have fallen victims of this act.
“Also, the law prohibiting homosexuality is still in force in Nigeria and anyone caught must be made to face full wrath of the law.
“We have had a lot of armed robbery cases where people are robbed at gun point, and people with such character also have the tendency to commit such crime.
“So, investigations are ongoing to unravel the real motive behind this act, to see if he is involved in other criminal activities, and to also forestall this bad trend in Plateau, ” he said.
