A man was battered for swapping his fake iPhone with a U.K-used iPhone 7 plus in Lagos State.
The suspected scammer met his Waterloo, yesterday, at Computer Village, Ikeja, Lagos, after cleverly swapping his rose gold China iPhone 6s Plus with a U.K-used iPhone 7 plus of the same color.
He had approached a sales boy that he wanted to buy an iPhone 7 plus and the unsuspecting seller gave him. However, he smartly swapped it with the China iPhone 6s Plus in his pocket and later said he was no longer interested in buying.
Unknown to him, a stranger was watching. The person informed the sales boy and the suspect was nabbed. He was then beaten by people in the market.
Also recently, a thief was caught after returning to rob a store he had robbed 8 months ago. Luck ran out on a thief who returned 8 months after robbing the same boutique. The thief had in the past robbed a boutique located at Cemetery Road in Sapele area of Delta state and went away with wristwatches, neck chains, clothes and other valuable items.
Obviously not satisfied with the first robbery they successfully executed, the thief returned but was caught this time.
They reportedly stormed the boutique in the early hours of Saturday morning, but luck ran out of them as one of them was caught while the other one ran away
