A man has been arrested for pretending to be a woman and going ahead to dress in a bridesmaid robe at a traditional wedding ceremony.

The man identified as Abdirahman from Somalia who bears the same name with the groom was reported to have stayed with the newly wed couple for more than three weeks posing as a woman before his arrest.

The Somalian culture which allows the maid of honor stay with the newly wed after assisting the couple for the wedding had provided a perfect cover for the imposter.

Abdirahman was arrested after the bride’s mother raised an alarm.

The groom while narrating the shocking experience to Somali Cable said: “A woman claiming to be his mother came to our house and asked if we have seen her son named Abdirahman. I told her we have never seen her son and the only person living with us was a girl named Asma.

“That’s when the woman told me that Asma is actually her son, Abdirahman.”
