We thought the world is a global community and Facebook, a social media platform in the digital world, is for connecting with family, friends and others to keep the friendship bond alive virtually?
Well, a security guard has reportedly landed in trouble for using Facebook for the right purpose.
He has been arrested for sending a friend request to a lady who lives in the estate where the house he is employed to guard is located.
He didn’t run into trouble for phishing, scam or other internet fraud, according to the account of a Twitter user, the man was arrested for only sending a friend request.
Facebook has an option to reject a friend request and also block the sender from sending future requests, probably the lady didn’t find the options useful enough and she decided to get the man arrested.
A Nigerian lady, Bolouere Opukiri (@Boluxxx) took to her Twitter page to share the disturbing story.
Boluere said the lady who ordered the security guard’s arrest is famous in her estate in Abuja as a troublesome resident and had fought almost every resident in the estate.
“There’s this chic in my estate that’s notorious for quarelling serially.
“Today she came to arrest my building security guy.
“What did he do? Sent her a friend’s request on Facebook.”
Another Twitter user @AdejoED who also resides in the estate corroborated her claim after asking about the woman from his neighbours.
“Hahahahaha same estate? Let me ask my house people for full gist biko.
Lmao they know her o. But making trouble with someone for sending Facebook friend request is another level of psycho sha 😂
