    A stylishly designed, expensive phone belonging to former Nigerian Vice-President, Namadi Sambo, has been stolen by a thief in Abuja.

    According to Senator Shehu Sani, a former lawmaker, someone breached the tight security line and stole Sambo’s phone at Thursday’s late Governor Solomon Lar’s book launch in Abuja.

    “It’s incredible that someone can breach the tight security line and steal the phone of the former VP Sambo at the ongoing late Governor Solomon Lar Book launch in Abuja,” Sani wrote on his verified Twitter handle on Thursday.

    Dignitaries across the political spectre including ex-leaders and chieftains of political parties, business and family associates attended the event which took place at NAF Conference Centre, Kado, Abuja FCT.

    Late Lar died in 2013 at the age of 80. He was the founding Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and held various offices at the national level for over 50 years.

    Lar was a member of the first national parliament when Nigeria gained independence in 1960.

    He was elected governor of Plateau State on the Nigerian People’s Party (NPP) platform during the Nigerian Second Republic, holding office from October 1979 until the Military coup of December 31, 1983 that brought Muhammadu Buhari to power.
