Two phone technicians who were allegedly lured victims with cheap prices for expensive mobile phones on jiji.com, have been arrested by operatives of the Rapid Response Squad (RRS).
The police reports said that the suspects, who have been identified as Chukwuemeka Ogbonna, 45, and Olabode Kehinde, 34, usually lured their buyers to places where they took their money and gave them fake mobile phones.
Information gathered also reveals that the duo worked for the same syndicate and had advertised an Iphone X, a phone valued at N240,000 for N155,000 to lure buyers and sold fake mobile phones at Computer Village.
One of the suspect who confessed to the crime said;
“Times are hard. I need money to feed my family. We are many doing it. We call it street hustling. I wont go back to it if released,”
