A clear case of being dumb happened when a thief took a selfie with a phone he stole the previous night and went ahead to post it on the Instagram page of the original phone owner.
The thief reportedly raided the victim’s hose at Ago Palace Way in the Okota area of Lagos State and made away with valuables including the phone, a Note 5, laptops and expensive jewelry.
A sister of the victim, Folawale Ariran, posted the Internet-crazy thief’s picture on Instagram and appealed to members of the public to help in tracing him.
She wrote: “Good morning everyone. Please, this person just robbed my brother’s house last night. He stole phones, laptops and expensive jewelry at Ago Palace Way, Okota, Lagos.
“He used one of the phones, – a note 5 -, to post on Instagram about three hours ago. Apparently, he doesn’t know how it works because he posted his selfie through my brother’s account.”
“Please retweet until we find him. Please call 09098009221 if you find anything.”
