The Operatives of Rapid Response Squad (RRS) of Lagos State Police Command, have arrested an 18 -year-old boy identified as Segun Adeyefa, for allegedly selling bar of soap as mobile phones to unsuspecting members of public in traffic.
Our correspondent learnt that the suspect was arrested by the RRS men on routine patrol of Ikorodu Motor Park while trying to defraud a young man at the motor park.
He said, “My action was prompted when I was swindled by two guys about a year ago by this way. I had intention of buying a phone but unknowingly to me it was a cut-to-size bar of soap just looked similar to a phone shape.
“The two guys approached me on my way to work, then, I was learning a plumbing work somewhere around Ikorodu. I bought the phone which was advertised to me as ‘London used phone’ for N2, 500. As I left the place, I checked the phone I bought, to my surprise, I discovered it was a soap I bought for such amount. That very moment I promised myself to revenge by doing same to the people”, he explained.
