Police in Kano have arrested a 38 year old woman popularly called ‘society woman’ and have charged her to court for allegedly impersonating police, with police uniform in her possession, and other related offences.

The suspect, who is being referred to by her pseudo name ‘Kofar Mata’ was arrested on February 11 this year and was immediately arraigned in Court 29 at Sabon Gari, Kano. The police report showed that she was arraigned on February 12, 2018.

According to the charge sheet, the suspect is also being charged with criminal conspiracy and harbouring of miscreants as well as the allegation that she belongs to unlawful society and possession of police uniform.

The suspect has been in remand in prison while the court adjourned the case for further hearing to February 28.

The suspect, according to sources is a known serial fraudster in Kano, as she is often referred to as ‘Kano Big Girl’.

Sources who spoke to this reporter said that her arrest and subsequent arraignment were celebrated by people in her community who had earlier lodged a lot of complaints against her for her nefarious activities.

Mallam Bala Nasidi from the community commended the police for arresting her, saying that such people should be thoroughly investigated and the law should take its course.

“Her cup is full. She wears very deceptive looks as she preys on her victims. She called herself Kofar Mata. She is often sited at big time parties in Kano,” Danladi Sabo, another member of community said.

Policemen were said to have long been on the trail of ‘Kofar Mata’ until she was finally arrested with police uniform found in her custody.
