On Wednesday the FCT Police Command paraded Iliyasu Omika alongside other 15 suspects for allegedly seducing men at nightclubs into erotic relationships while they disguised themselves as a lady.
Iliyasu Omika is from Kogi State, but he resides at Tungan Maje in Abuja.
According to the police he was arrested at a brothel in Mpape on November 5th around 5am “after his client raised alarm immediately discovered that he was actually a man and not a woman as he claimed.”
The suspect denied the assertion but admitted that he met the man in a bar while he was with his sisters.
Omika said he and his sisters were in the bar to look for jobs, but the man informed him that they could get employment at the bar.

“I was in a bar and a man saw me and asked if I was Igala (ethnic group), I said yes. He offered to buy drinks for me, but I told him I don’t take alcohol, so he bought me a soft drink.
“I told him that my sisters and I were in the bar to look for jobs, but he said there were no jobs there and offered to take us to his house. He explained that we could stay the night and promised to give us N3,000 so we could go back to our village; so, we went with him to his house” he said.
“The man said my sisters should come and sleep with him, but they refused and chose to sleep in the living room. So, I slept off and the man touched my chest and upon discovering that I was a man, he called the police and I was arrested. It was at daybreak that the police came and I was taken away,”
