Residents of Soroti were on Friday treated to a combination of awe and shock when a ‘woman’ who allegedly had been conning and duping men of their money was arrested, undressed and exposed.
Clad in a purple top and a black skirt with plaited hair on, ‘Angella’ could not ride on luck one more time after a man ‘she’ tried to con noticed something unusual about her facial appearance. The man alerted the police who arrested the ‘woman’, ordered ‘her’ to put off ‘her’ blouse only to discover that ‘she’ had been stuffing her chest with rags to give an impression of breasts yet ‘she’ was a man.
Upon interrogation by the police, the man later accepted that poverty and dire need had driven him into the vice adding that he had been making quite a substantial figure out of the vice. He said that he would dupe men into lodges claiming she would offer them sex for money. However, she would concoct an excuse and escape before the actual act.
The police identified him as Sam Okello, hailing from Kabata Village in Kumi Sub County. Okello, according to police, is still under interrogation after another man identified as Emmanuel Ogaram accused him of theft of chicken from his home in Soroti town.
