A student of Government Secondary School Koroduma (name witheld) was caught this morning at about 9:30am stealing a phone from Originality Phone Villa, a phone sales outlet located on Adeyi Road, Koroduma, One-man Village.
According to the Director of the Shop, Mr Emmanuel Agbole, the young boy who disguised to be a customer carried out the criminal act while pretending to be making enquiries about products on display.
Mr Emma said luck ran out of the young thief when his boys who were vigilant noticed that he had sneaked a Samsung Galaxy phone into his bag. When he was confronted, he denied ever seeing the said phone which was already missing from the sales stand. He was however subjected to a search upon which the phone was found in his school bag.
The young criminal has since been handed over to the police at One-Village Out Post Station.
Efforts by Olekareporters to reach the Officer in charge of the station proved abortive as he was said not to be on seat.
