Nor matter how old the video is it can't change its content. Even police men are being trained for six-months, so what do u expect. Go and learn the rest in jail.

YEN.com.gh earlier reported that a video of a young lady based in the US who lost her phone but ended up locating it in a whole different continent surfaced online and has got many talking.
The lady recounted that at the beginning of October, she lost her iPhone while walking on a street in Washington DC in the US.
In an attempt to locate the missing phone, the lady tried calling the phone but it was switched off. She then decided to track the phone using Apple's find iPhone feature.
To her surprise, she found out the phone was located in a phone shop in Ghana.
