In recent times thieves have devised new means of robbing innocent people and some ofthem seem to be getting away with it. Just recently in Niger state, a young man was caught robbing in hijab and was immediately taken away by the police.
According to Facebook user Jonpaul Oshioke Umoru who posted the man’s picture, he claimed that these men are well known for stealing mobile phones. They would dress like women in hijabs at night and attack anyone of their choice.
“PUBLIC NOTICE!!! Dwellers of 3 Arms Zone, Eastern bypass/Maitumbi Axis, Minna in Niger state... Pls take heed, there is a latest prank used by Handset robbers after dark, they wear hijabs and trail you from behindto portray a feminine character whilst you let down your guard, they catch up and strike at any resistance. Nemesis caught up with this one yesterday, he has since been apprehended and put in custody.”
