A video of a Nigerian man being interrogated after he was nabbed stealing four packs of spaghetti from a store has gone viral.
The man’s face was revealed in the video as he blamed a bad spirit for his actions.
Before making his statement, packs of spaghetti were retrieved from his trousers in the video.
He pleaded for mercy, but the people in the supermarket paid him no attention, as they made him understand that they too are struggling and working to eat and survive. Therefore, he had no excuse to steal.
