In other news, Instagram comedian, No Mistake has revealed that he fell victim to cyber fraudsters who got hold of his personal mobile phone.
He said that his phone got stolen but he did not realise that it was missing because he hardly uses it to make or receive calls.
But the skit maker said he uses the phone to get credit alerts from his bank because his old SIM card is still inside.
No Mistake said he only discovered that the phone was missing when he checked his account balance and saw that there was no money remaining.
He lamented about his account being emptied by fraudsters aka Yahoo boys and expressed disbelief that they also target Nigerians.
The furious content creator then proceeded to lay curses on the culprits whom he described small ‘oloriburuku’ yahoo boys.
