iPhones alongside its unique features have become very needy in the eyes of many in Nigeria and the world that in 2017, a Jumia delivery man was killed by his customers over iPhones. A delivery man with an online marketing store, Jumia, Mr. Chukwuma Eleje, has been killed in a house on Ada George Road, Port Harcourt, Rivers State. The victim was said to be delivering two iPhones to some customers, who had ordered for them through the Internet on Saturday, when he was attacked and killed. The assailants were reported to have dumped his remains in a septic tank in a desperate attempt to cover up the crime but were reported by residents.

Also, in this year, 2021, a young girl was being flogged treachously in a viral video on social media by her boyfriend and his friends with belts for cheating on him after he had bought her an iPhone worth 500 thousand naira which is probably, the iPhone 11.

However, on the rumoured release of iPhone 13, some Nigerians just pursed and demand to be paused a bit on these technology moves. They are becoming overwhelmed and have commented under Forbes Massive iPhone 13 upgrade post,

“you buy an iPhone 12 and while you’re charging it, they release an iPhone 13,” with a crying emoji.
