A 29-year-old man identified as Victor Monday who specialises in dressing as female prostitute to rob men, has been arrested by the Police in Lagos.
The man was arrested by officers of the Mushin Police Station around 12am on Ogunmokun Street while he was in female costume waiting for “a client” by the roadside.
According to reports, Police arrested him initially for loitering around at a late hour, before realizing he is a man disguised as a woman.
Police reported that his few strands of beards aroused his suspicion, and further search conducted on him revealed he is a man.
Monday however blamed his act on joblessness in the country, a police source revealed:
“His mode of operation was to go to clubs at night and look for men he would spend the night with while disguising like a woman. He would dance around to attract men to himself. Whoever is interested in spending the night with him would approach him.
“He would collect some money from his unsuspecting victim as part payment for his service and have fun on his bill. While they were drinking and wining, he would tell the man that he wanted to urinate and use that opportunity to run away. He said he made between N7,000 and N10,000 per night,” the source said.
