The thief had claimed to be in dire need of money to fend for himself and was so sorry for his action, but he didn’t have any option.

He even justified his action by telling the owner he deliberately didn’t steal his phone and wallet as that may serve as compensation for the laptop he lifted.

He then promised to forward any file that the owner, who happens to be a student, might need.

  1. The thief is kind of nice o . It’s rare for a thief todo such a thing. Maybe owner was just lucky to have the system back

  2. Some thieves can pretend very well ooo! What kind of passionate stealing is that ooo! Well, he should not go unpublished

  3. What a nice thief, the note make sense. He is supposed to go and work na, instead of stealing or maybe beg some people

  4. Comment*
    too sad what poverty can do. it could be that in actual sense he’s not a thief but in need of money at that period.. anyways may God provide for him so it will not escalate.

  5. Poverty is a big disease but he shouldnt have stole the laptop,what about if he get cut no one would listen to him

  6. Even if he is poor and needy can’t he source for other means, is stealing the next thing, poverty has turn to something o

  7. Being extremely poor doesn’t make you become laptop theft, thief is forbidden in our society, there are hard earn out there that you can do, if you are not lazy you won’t decided to thief someone laptop that work for it from hard earned, I will urge the thief to change his mind and return it.

  8. I have never seen a thief like this before! Wow maybe he really needs help. Even willing to send him back his documents. I really pity the thief

  9. Well, for me I don’t think what the thief claims is a justification for stealing, there’s no justification for robbing,

  10. Nothing wey person no go see for Dis world o,, had it been that ure caught now, will u be saying all Dis, just go and thank ur God

  11. Guys should work on their mind than to allow anything that come across their mind to use them is a pity that guy should go for deliverance abegi

  12. No matter what, stealing someone else property is bad, am sure if you were caught no one will listen to your story

  13. That’s bad,he is a student,the theft shouldnt have steal from him..police have to investigate and arrest him,criminal will always be a criminal no matter what

  14. Sounds funny. Okay let’s give benefit of doubt. He was in dire need, couldn’t he have decently asked for help or looked for some menial job to do rather than cause someone else pai n

  15. This one is serious, only God knows what made him to steal. Desperate situations, call for desperate .measures.

  16. Eyah! He even offered to send him his files if any. He has pity, to have left his phone and wallet, he has conscience.

  17. Him he is only trying to justify him self but being poor and in dear need of money does not guarantee styling

  18. Being extremely poor doesn’t guarantee you to go steal bro, you could have go on a daily labor job and get paid in stead of stealing. Shows you’re lazy and lie about your claim of being sorry. I don’t believe your story.

  19. Hmmm poverty is something else . its good it was a good thief that promised to return his valuable documents

  20. No, that’s a lie still. There are lots of options for you instead of stealing, you could have go on a daily labor job and get paid. Being extremely poor doesn’t guarantee you to steal.

  21. If you’re truly sorry for your actions, you would return the laptop. Being extremely poor doesn’t say one should steal.

  22. There is no excuse that will justify his actions. It could have been more honourable for him to engage in begging instead of stealing.

  23. He just stole the laptop, like seriously and send a message to the owner “I am poor”. What a funny world.

  24. Stealing is stealing, being poor does not justify your action.Why not go and meet the person and beg for his assistance.

  25. What kind of thief is this again? Hahahahahaha.he has small conscience left in him though…why stealing? May God help you…dnt continue..is like you are a good person…pray to God to open your way for you and to also send you destiny helper…

  26. What a pity, he stole and still sent a message to the owner, he must have felt guilty for his actions to send such a message, poverty is a disease

  27. Lol. He steals with conciense and left the owner in confusion. This type u won’t no wat to tell God in prayer

  28. Being in need is no justification for stealing from another person. Imagine the pain you would have put the person through. May God have mercy on you.

  29. Even in dead need of cash doesn’t justify the fact that he stole, but since he is sorry about..the owner should forgive him, just pray for him and wish him well. desperation will make you do things u ought not to

  30. But poverty is not enough reason for you to steal is not a good reason for you to tanish your image always work hard god will surely help me his message is touching.

  31. Funny but still not right as the thief should have done menial jobs to earn some funds that will meet atleast few of his needs if not all.There is diligence in Labour not in stealing

  32. That is what our Nigeria economy has subject some people turn them from good to bad chaii, i pity the thief oo and owner of laptop.

  33. This message is so sympathetic but that doesn’t guarantee you to go and steal,it is inhuman, frustrating your fellow human, is un callfor

  34. Is that suppose to justify his action? A thief is a thief and so therefore a criminal, if he so needed money, there are options other than stealing.

  35. I haven’t heard of such in my entire life….this is really a theft with conscience and sympathy….that shows is the situation of this that pushed him into it….

  36. Stealing everywhere in Nigeria is highly too much, anyway one of our formal president says to thieves is not a crime is a business, imagine that, what main problem that we have in Nigeria is poverty , there is alot of graduate in Nigeria that seek for work, and at the end of the day nothing show, but thieve something is not the solution, we need to look for another things to do instead of stealing things

  37. This one weak me ooooo is it that he want to sell the laptop or he stole it for his own personal use,this is funny wonders will not end

  38. I have never seen a thief like this before! Wow maybe he really needs help. Even willing to send him back his documents. I really pity the thief

  39. He should not only forward the files as might be needed by the laptop owner but, should as well return his laptop too.

  40. Thief might be his close friend for sending him that message and his conscience is blaming him for the action but just that he is poor and needed money led him to stealing. I pray that God change his situation and let him find something to do to put money in his pocket so he will stop stealing.

  41. The question is how many laptops will he steal to meet his needs. Obviously,he needs help. But he has to stop stealing .

  42. He actually stole out of frustration and lack of money but still have that pity in him, government should please provide work for our youths

  43. The thief is kind of nice one . It’s rare for a thief todo such a thing. Maybe owner was just lucky to have the system back.He guess he maybe the person he knows for sending him that message.

  44. The police have to investigate him criminal will always be a criminal no matter what, He guess he maybe the person he knows for sending him that message.

  45. Hahahahahahaha this is very funny, being poor is not an excuse for you to steal someone’s valuable. Once you know you are poor you look for something to do in order to earn a living.

  46. Very funny indeed if you are really that sorry why don’t you return the laptop and leave this fairy tales

  47. I feel he is in abject poverty and have no option that is why he engage in stealing. May God provide for him and may the owner find a place in his heart to forgive the thief.

  48. There’s no reason to justify stealing. He would have asked to give him some money in exchange for his laptop.

  49. I just feel pity for the thief bcoz all that he did was not intentional but needed money badly for up keep. I would advise the owner of the laptop to let the matter die down cos it’s not the thief fault, it’s poverty wahala
