Daily Trust - - CRIME - From Shehu Umar,Gusau

A15-year-old boy, known as Yusuf Saleh, was ar­rested by the po­lice af­ter he dis­guised as a woman and sneaked into the girls’ dor­mi­tory at the Fed­eral Col­lege of Ed­u­ca­tion (Tech­ni­cal) Gusau, Zam­fara State.

The boy, ac­cord­ing to se­cu­rity sources, had tres­passed into the hos­tel about 6am, ap­par­ently to catch a glimpse of the naked­ness of the fe­male stu­dents while they were bathing in an open place. He was sub­se­quently de­tected while star­ing at the fe­male stu­dents.

Pres­i­dent of the Stu­dent Union Gov­ern­ment of the col­lege, Maryam Ibrahim, told Daily Trust that the sus­pect was seen wear­ing a wrap­per, Hi­jab and a head­scarf, adding that one of her col­leagues who was able to re­veal his real iden­tity drew the at­ten­tion of other stu­dents and he was quickly caught and handed over to the col­lege se­cu­rity per­son­nel.

The ap­pear­ance of the boy at the hos­tel caused a sud­den com­mo­tion as some stu­dents be­gan to sus­pect him to be a terror king­pin try­ing to launch at­tack on them.

How­ever, the sus­pect told Daily Trust that he was there for no def­i­nite mis­sion other than to see what the fe­male hos­tel is all about, say­ing he dis­guised as a woman to avoid be­ing de­tected by the se­cu­rity op­er­a­tives and stu­dents.

The Po­lice Public Re­la­tions Of­fi­cer, Zam­fara State com­mand, DSP Sanusi Amiru said the sus­pect would be charged to court upon com­ple­tion of in­ves­ti­ga­tion, and called on the public to re­port any sus­pi­cious move­ment to the near­est se­cu­rity for­ma­tion.
