A CCTV camera has exposed the tactics an elderly man used to steal a mobile phone from a pharmacy he was intentionally purchasing from.
The man, who had entered under the pretext of purchasing some tablets he showed, stole a black mobile phone.
A video widely in circulation shows the man, dressed in a thobe heading towards the empty counter.
After scouting the Abuja-based pharmacy, he placed his tablet on the table and dragged one of the phones lying at the counter, before walking away.
He returned to the dispensary and engaged in a brief conversation with the unsuspecting pharmacist.
