A man identified simply as Ifeanyi had his finger bitten by a girl yesterday for selling a blackberry phone filled with stones to her at Westminster Market, along Apapa- Oshodi expressway, Olodi -Apapa area of Lagos State.
The girl, Nkechi had bought a fairly-used phone from Ifeanyi at the sum of N15,000 on Monday and was instructed by the seller to battery for at least four hours before usage after he had tested if the phone working in her presence.
Unknown to her, one of the members of the seller’s syndicate swapped the one that had been tested with a dud one. When she got home, she plugged the phone to charge it as instructed but was shocked when no light came on. She then opened the battery, only to discover stones smartly packed inside the phone.
She quickly went back to the seller of the phone who attempted to escape when he saw her but she quickly grabbed him and raised an alarm which attracted passersby.
As Ifeanyi tried to loosen her grip on him, she was said to have bitten his finger.
He was rushed to a nearby hospital while some youths who sympathised with the girl helped her to escape from the scene.
An eyewitness who identified himself as Ikenna, confirmed that Ifeanyi is a member of a syndicate that defrauds people through sales of fake items at the Westminster market.
