The Ghanaian-born British by name Mariah Coby who was in Ghana to mark the Year of Return festivities has narrated that she lost her iPhone 11 Pro in Ghana and later bought it at the Kwame Nkrumah Circle.
Mariah Coby made the rather shocking revelations on her YouTube channel, stating that the theft happened at Bloom Bar in Accra on December 22, 2019, when she and her 'girls-girls' were out having fun.
The beautiful lady says that she was there with her twin sister called Mariah Coby and some of her cousins. Mariah Coby says in the video sighted by YEN.com.gh that the place got extremely busy and jammed though it was very late in the night.
According to Mariah, she had never lost her phone before and therefore did not find any need to secure the details or put locks on it to prevent it from being used in the case of theft.
At 1.00 am, Mariah indicated that they decided to leave Bloom Bar and go to the next joint which was Onyx Night Club to continue their fun.
Whilst they were exiting Bloom Bar, a scuffle ensued right in the middle of the bar so she decided to find a safe place to stand in order not to get hurt. During that time, she felt her phone slide out of her pocket.
With the help of her sister, Mariah tried to track the phone but realized that the perpetrator had turned it off to prevent getting caught.
As all attempts to get the phone that night fell through, Mariah and her girls had to go home.
The very next day, they got an alert that the phone had been turned on in a nearby location which they found out was called Circle.
Several people were contacted to find some 'area boys' who helped with the search. The man who stole the phone was found but agreed to only let it go after a huge compensation of 3,000 cedis.
The compensation was made but Mariah found out later that all the information on the phone had already been cleared. “When I realised that all my contacts were gone, I was like wow! This was a good day but wasted,” she said.
Circle has been in the news for similar acts of theft and duping.
Not long ago, YEN.com.gh reported that a viral video has surfaced showing a young man who tried to buy a quality but highly affordable phone from Kwame Nkrumah Circle in Accra but was sold a stone instead.
