Nigerian skit-maker and member of 30 Billion Gang (30BG), Bashir Mohammed, popularly known as Father DMW, has revealed that he disguised as a woman to escape being indoctrinated into the Boko Haram terrorist group.

The Instagram sensation said he fled from his hometown, Maiduguri in Borno State, while dressed as a woman to Lagos where he met Davido, who changed his life.

Father DMW who disclosed this in an interview with Vanzu TV, said the insurgents were on a rampage forcing and arming young men to join them, but he escaped after disguising himself as a lady in a hijab.

According to him, on getting to Lagos, he became a bike rider and his fame came through award-winning music star, Davido, who he ran errands for.

He said; “Boko Haram dem go and kill everybody. Like me, if dem see me, they just give me gun, if I never follow them, they will now start to kill me.

“When they entered, I wear hijab like woman. Do make up, put breasts, y*nsh, everything to escape. Because if they know say you be man, if dem commot that hijab, no be shoot dem go shoot you o, na knife dem go cut you.”

The Hisbah command in Kano recently gave its verdict in the matter of a woman, Malama Khadija Rano, who allegedly dissolved her marriage to marry her daughter’s suitor.

The Islamic body said that based on investigation, the marriage had fulfilled all the necessary criteria in accordance with the principles of Islam.

Deputy Commander in charge of operations, and chairman of the investigation committee, Hussain Ahmed, said Khadija was no longer with her husband and observed the three months waiting period (iddah) after divorce.

The statement partly read; “Presenting the report, chairman of the committee who doubles as Deputy Commander in charge of operations of the Board, Malam Hussain Ahmed, said the committee had found out that the marriage was legal and had fulfilled all the necessary criteria.

“The marriage is legal according to Islam, that was the reason Hisbah Commander in Rano Local Government Area supported and took part in the wedding rites”.

CorrectNG reported earlier that Malama Khadija tied the knot with her daughter’s boyfriend in Rano Local Government Area of the state after her daughter, Aisha, rejected his marriage proposal.

Her relatives however, accused the Hisbah Commandant of Rano LGA of marrying off their daughter without their consent and that they didn’t even know where she was.

They visited a radio station to raise an alarm when they learnt that Khadija had married a younger man without informing her family.

But in reaction, Khadija who later visited the station, said she was living happily with her new husband. According to the woman, Muslim clerics gave her assurance that her marriage was not prohibited in Islam.

When Malama Khadija’s child turned down the boyfriend that asked for her hand in marriage, she decided to ensure she and her daughter don’t lose him.
