A Nigerian man has recounted the time he bought an iPhone which turned out to be an Android upon reaching his house.
According to the guy known on Twitter as @unclebayotics, he bought the iPhone at a shop in Lagos six years ago, and tested it there. However when he got home, he realised that it had been swapped with an Android device.
He stormed the phone shop with his uncle to confront the seller, but they met an unbelievable sight that shocked him to his bones. The shop had been transformed, and rather than selling phones, he saw that they were now selling bread.
Taking to his Twitter account on March 12, he wrote; ”Today makes it six years that I went to buy iPhone in Lagos and I tested it there. The guy went inside to ‘pack’ it. When I got home, it was android.
My uncle asked me to take him there. He was ready to fight. When we got to the shop it was sliced bread they were selling there 😭 E come be like say I get mental problem. Na that day I wise for Lagos sha”
