A social media user schooling at the Federal University of Technology in Owerri, Imo State also known as FUTO has shared the news of the ill-treatment given to a phone thief.
He was nabbed while trying to sell the phone to another person after cleaning the entire data on it. He was beaten and made to swim in a stagnant water while he was publicly paraded.
Read the words of the news poster below:
"He stole the phone this morning, then later this afternoon he took the same phone after wiping it and wanted to sell it for 7k to one guy without knowing that the guy he wanted to sell it to was the roommate of the original owner of the phone.
So being a sharp guy he noticed that the phone was his roommate's so he started negotiating with him and the agreed 5k, the he told him to meet him at the bet9ja shop, the same place he stole the phone. So immediately he called his roommate in his smaller phone and told him to bring some vigilante to the bet9ja shop and that's where they caught him, and started beating him up but fortunately for him some man'o'war boys were around and came to his rescue and was later taken to their custody, or camp, or prison, or whatever they call it"
