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."
