“Dwellers of 3 Arms Zone, Eastern bypass/Maitumbi Axis,Minna in Niger State. Please take heed, there is a latest prank used by Handset robbers after dark, they wear hijabs and trail you from behind to 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”
There have been moves to ban Hijab in many parts of Norther Nigeria but such moves have been futile.
