British man who lost his iPhone in UK finds out after a month that it’s chilling in Edo state

A British man simply known as Darren has revealed that he discovered the location of his phone which got missing in the UK a month ago.

According to the guy, he was just able to log into his iCloud, and he used the geolocation services to track his phone only for him to see that it has reached Nigeria.

Darren shared a screenshot of the map showing his iPhone in Ibiwe street, Oredo area of Edo state.

He wrote; ”Lost me phone in town like a month ago, just got back into my iCloud to find out it’s went on holiday to Nigeria 😂😂😂”

Other social media users shared similar experiences but Nigerians also used the opportunity to correct some misconceptions.

@liamhasnogame; Samw happened to me… All these Nigerian names kept coming up in my address book

@fran_czar; Your people steal your phones and sell it to Nigerian buyers cos there’s a huge market for them here.

@CallMe_Ammie; In Australia, they sell their old iPhones for $350AUD. Imagine someone selling it on purpose then coming here to yammer about how his missing phone was found in Nigeria

@fran_czar; Fr. That agenda shouldn’t fly. It’s still them stealing cars and shipping to Africa and then turn around and try to blame us. They should tidy things up from there first.

@sammy_side; My mate got her phone robbed a few months ago and some fella has been tryna get all her mates to give us the details so he can unlock it 😅

@chimaamanda_; It does happen, people steal phone abroad and bring it to sell in Nigeria, innocent people have been arrested multiple times for a phone they bought with their money not knowing it was stolen.
