Man Who Sells Soaps As Phones In Lagos Traffic Arrested


A young man who packaged bar soaps and sold them as mobile phone to unsuspecting members of the public has been arrested.


An 18-year-old man, Segun Adeyefa , whose 'hustle' is to sell bar soaps in the guise of mobile phones to unsuspecting people in traffic, has been arrested by operatives of Rapid Response Squad (RRS), of Lagos State Police Command, while on a routine patrol of Ikorodu Motor Park on the night of Tuesday, August 30, 2016.

Adeyefa who confessed to the act said he was on a revenge mission after he was also swindled in the same manner about a year ago by his likes, adding that he had successfully sold the bar-phone to a man at N3,500 before he was caught that day.

Hear him:
“My action was prompted when I was swindled by two guys about a year ago by this way. That very moment I promised myself to revenge. I learned those tactics by understudying the material. The item contained cut-to-size soap, carton and wrapped all together with a cello tape.

What I usually do is called exchange. My prospective victims will have the mind of buying the handset from me but unknowingly to them, I would have changed the real handset to soap wrapped with a cut to size carton put inside an envelope."

"I will engage them in discussion after showing them the real phone initially, and in the process of bargaining for the price, I will change it.

And, I will tell them to keep the phone inside their pockets immediately that people are watching us."

Title-crazy civil servants to go

Title-crazy civil servants are scared of being sacked, The Nation learnt at the weekend. Officials, who violated the Public Service Rule banning titles until after retirement, may be retired in the coming civil service reforms.
Only those whose titles were traditionally inherited may be spared but their postings and conduct will be put under watch.
According to sources, the government is disturbed that most of the top civil servants with honorary awards actually bought them at high fees.
The affected civil servants violated the rules which grants them the right to such honors only after retirement.
Besides committing the resources of Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAS) to such awards, most of the civil servants used the window to “grant favour to groups, persons, and communities in violation of their oath of office.”
