A viral phone thief has been arrested after using an iPhone 12 pro max to borrow eight thousand naira in Lagos.

Naija News understands that the suspect, yet to be identified had stolen the phone some couple of days ago inside a store at computer village in Ikeja, Lagos.

The shop owner had shared a CCTV video on social media, pleading with the public to help with the identification of the thief.

However, days after the post was made, the store owner, Omo Nna via the microblogging platform, Twitter, revealed that the suspect has been caught.

Narrating the process, Omo Nna said, they tracked the phone down to a moneylender who alleged that the suspect had used the stolen phone to collect a sum of eight thousand naira.

Sharing the details, he wrote; “We caught him, Thank y’all for the Retweet! He used a whole Iphone 12pro to borrow N8,000 from his friend… so we tracked the phone down to the money lender, which he gave us details of how we can grind the guy.”
