He is lying, the police insists
Chief of the police Crack Squad, CSP Ahmed Gombi said as quoted by The Nation Newspapers:
“One of the cases is criminal trespass, a person who dressed as a female and entered the compound of School of Nursing.
“We have established that he used to steal cooking gas cylinders of students. We received a distress call that he was about to be lynched, so my men went there, rescued and brought him to the police headquarters.

“He has confessed that he is not alone. So we are looking at the possibility of a syndicate. We will go after them one by one.
“The boy has no girlfriend in the institution. We have done our background check. He normally goes there to steal gas cylinders of female students."
