UNILAG Babe Arrested After Stealing Boyfriend's ATM Card To Buy iPhone 8 and X Online


A final year female Unilag student was arrested on Wednesday, 18th of April after she allegedly stole her boyfriend’s ATM card and used it to buy an iPhon 8 and X on Jumia.

According to trending reports, the lady bought other several items on Jumia too. However, her boyfriend, in collaboration with Jumia, traced the buyer to Unilag’s Moremi Hall where the delivery was made.

That was how the suspect was arrested and handed over to the school’s DSA. An eyewitness said: “It appears, she’s been scamming guys with her friends for a long time.


When the Jumia officials came to the hostel, she hid the phones in a bag and threw them in the dustbin. The girl is actually using an iPhone 7 Plus. However, upon realizing what was happening, the boyfriend demanded that the case be dropped.”

According to the user, @Blez_Tuna who broke the story online, here’s how it was narrated;

I have gist for the TL.

It just happened right now in my hostel, moremi, Unilag.

Apparently, a girl stole her boyfriend friend’s card and used to buy an iPhone 8 and other things with the card from jumia.

The guy/jumia traced it to our hostel where the delivery was made.

The jumia guys came with the police and took her to the DSA’s office.

The moremi girls kept shouting her ole as she took the walk of shame.

Sigh.

She’s in final year. And she might get expelled.

P.s she’s a squatter. All the squatters in our hostel are in trouble.

Update!

So, it wasn’t just one phone. It was an iPhone x and an iPhone 8.

It appears, she’s been scamming guys with her friends for a long time.

When the jumia officials came to the hostel, she hid the phones in a bag and threw them in the dustbin.

The girl is actually using an iPhone 7 plus, tho.

The boyfriend realised what happened and asked the friend to drop the case.

But our hostel wants him to pay 100k for defamation of the hostel/school’s name.

End of tea.

Buhari Attacks Nigerian Youths, Say They Just Want To Sit Down And Earn Everything For Free From Government


Buhari speaking at the Commonwealth Business Forum in Westminster on Wednesday, also said a lot of Nigerian youths have not been to school and they want everything free.

“About the economy, we have a very young population, our population is estimated conservatively to be 180 million. This is a very conservative one,” Buhari said.

“More than 60 percent of the population is below 30, a lot of them haven’t been to school and they are claiming that Nigeria is an oil producing country, therefore, they should sit and do nothing, and get housing, healthcare, education for free.”

Recalled that President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday in London held bilateral talks with British Prime Minister, Theresa May, where he demanded for more influx of British companies and investments into Nigeria.

Buhari commended British companies; Unilever, Cadbury, and many others.

The President noted that the affected companies had stood with Nigeria through thick and thin, adding that the companies remained in Nigeria even when the country fought a civil war, they never left.

“But like Oliver Twist, we ask for more investments. We are encouraging more British companies to come to Nigeria.

“We appreciate the support you have given in training and equipping our military, particularly in the war against insurgency, but we want to also continue to work with you on trade and investment.’’

Buhari also briefed the Prime Minister on the strides in agriculture, which he said had put Nigeria firmly on the road to food self-sufficiency.

“I am very pleased with the successes in agriculture. We have cut rice importation by about 90 per cent, made lots of savings of foreign exchange, and generated employment.

“People had rushed to the cities to get oil money at the expense of farming. But luckily, they are now going back to the farms. Even professionals are going back to the land.

“We are making steady progress on the road to food security,’’ he said.

The President recalled that the All Progressives Congress-led government had campaigned on three major issues, to secure the country, revive the economy and fight corruption.

According to him, as the 2019 general election approaches, politicians are already pre-occupied with the polls, while he is bothered more about security and the economy.

“We have elections next year, politicians are already pre-occupied with the polls, but I am bothered more about security and the economy,’’ he stressed.

While recalling that Nigeria and Britain have a long history of cooperation on several fronts, Buhari said “people ought to know how they arrived where they are, if they would move forward.

“It was a mistake for us to have stopped the teaching of history as a subject in schools, but we are returning it to the curriculum now.’’

On education, Buhari said more investment was being made, because “people can look after themselves if well educated.

“In this age of technology, education is very important. We need well-staffed and well-equipped institutions to move into the next generation.’’

On Climate change and environmental issues which came up for discussion at the meeting, Adesina said President Buhari brought up the necessity of inter-basin water transfer from Congo Basin to Lake Chad.

“The Lake Chad is now about 10 per cent of its original size, and it is perhaps one of the reasons our youths dare both the Sahara Desert and the Mediterranean, to get to Europe.

“But if there is inter-basin water transfer, about 40 million people in Nigeria, Niger, Cameroon, Chad, and other countries stand to benefit.

“I made the case during the Climate Change Summit in France. If Lake Chad is recharged, it will reduce the number of youths coming to Europe to increase social problems. We brought back about 4,000 people from Libya recently.

“Almost all of them were below 30, and Libya was not their final destination. They were headed to Europe,’’ the president stated.

Prime Minister May, in her remarks, said Britain would continue to work with Nigeria in the areas of training and equipping the military.

She was particular about abduction of young schoolgirls by Boko Haram, noting that Britain would continue to give Nigeria needed assistance.

The Prime Minister said the Buhari administration had “been making good progress on the economy,’’ and urged it to maintain the focus, despite approaching elections, and increase in political activities.

On education and climate change, she said “good grounding in education is good. It is important to equip young people for today’s world.

“It is also a good bastion and defence against modern slavery. The issue of the environment and climate change is very important, because of its impact on many countries in the Commonwealth.

“Stability at home is important to curb illegal migration.’’

The Prime Minister, who commended Buhari for the much he had been doing on improving trade and business for Nigeria, noted that it was also time to boost intra-Commonwealth trade.
