NAIJ.com came across a touching but funny post shared by a man who took to his Facebook page to beg the thief that stole his phone to return it to him.
This man in the pictures below can safely be assumed to be the 'world's dumbest thief' following his actions.
The thief whose name is yet to be ascertained, had reportedly taken over the Whatsapp profile of a man whose phone he had stolen earlier.
According to the original owner of the phone, Chris Martin II, who shared his plight on Facebook, the man stole his valuables alongside his phone and he was able to get hold of the thief's pictures after he shared them on Whatsapp.
Sharing the story on Facebook, Chris wrote:
So, whoever this guy is stole my phone and my valuables. My phone pouch had several of my credit cards, bank debit cards, full British Drivers License, Nigerian Drivers License, business cards and other very important stuff that I hold dear.
The audacious thief was foolish enough to stunt with my whatsapp profile on the stolen phone. This is obviously how I got these pictures of him.
All entreaties to him to return my stolen properties has been to no avail. Honestly, the importance of any phone isn't the monetary value but the value of all the important information stored inside. I need my items back. I don't care about getting him arrested, I just want my phone and my stuff back.
Please help me restore faith in humanity. Help me find this guy. I believe someone on here must know this chap. He must be based in PH City.
Please share until we find him. Many thanks in advance."
