Online users in Nigeria were shocked, when they learnt that a 19-year-old man has been disguising as a female commercial sex worker, and even claims that he has attended to over 1, 000 male clients.
Ushahemba Yaapera from Benue State in Nigeria was arrested during a raid involving a case of N2, 500 (Ksh820) theft at a brothel at Makurdi metropolis.
Police say Yaapera, who has been operating as a prostitute in Makurdi, Benue capital, has been using the fictitious name Jenifer Kpaakpa to dupe his unsuspecting male clients.
During a search, which took place after a raid, a female police officer discovered that something was unusual with Yaapera.
Yaapera, would upon interrogation, reveal that he was introduced to commercial sex work five years ago by his classmate.
Despite having strong male genes, Yaapera claims to have both male and female sexual organs.
He told Nigerian newspaper Punch: “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 on Thursday, June 15, in Makurdi, said the raid was conducted at the said brothel by police operatives following a report of theft.
Makama said the case is being investigated and that scientific test would be conducted on Yaapera before being charged for “unnatural offence”.
