Benue State Police Command was shocked Thursday of the story of a man who has been operating as a female prostitute for the past five years.
The prostitute popularly known by the name Jennifer Kpaakpa in Makurdi, confessed to have slept with over 1000 men in the past five years.
He also confessed that he is a mermaid who operates at night as a female but during day time a male.
Kpaakpa’s real identity was discovered by the Police during a raid involving a case of N2,500 theft at a brothel along the railway bye pass at High level area of Makurdi metropolis.
The 19-year-old who hailed from Kastina-Ala Local Government Area of the state said in an interview that his classmate in Secondary School initiated him to the mermaid world five years ago.
“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 but at day time, I will remain in my normal masculine state and so far, I have slept with over 1000 men,” the suspect said.

Makama said the matter is being investigated and that scientific test would be conducted on the suspect before he would be charged to court for unnatural offence.
