Man who allegedly stole Meek Mill’s phone pleads not guilty

Nuhu Sule, a 33-year-old scrap dealer who allegedly stole the US rapper's phone during a programme at Independence square, has been remanded into police custody

The man accused of stealing US rapper Meek Mill‘s iPhone 14 Pro Max during the musician’s visit to Ghana last month has made his first court appearance.

Sule appeared before an Accra Circuit Court Wednesday (4 January 2023) and was charged with stealing.

He pleaded not guilty and is expected to reappear on 17 January 2023.

Sule alias Ababaawa was arrested Friday 30 December  2022, at his hideout in Accra.

The victim, Meek Mill, reported his phone stolen in Accra on 29 December 2022.

Meek Mill backtracks theft claim

The rapper on 31 December backtracked on his claim that the phone was pickpocketed during his visit to Ghana for this year’s Afro Nation music festival.

“They pick pocketed me for my phoneeeeeee SMH….Bring that Jawn back if you got it!!” he wrote in his IG stories.

The phone was found and returned to the Philadelphia rapper by the Ghana Police who revealed that they had arrested a suspect named Nuhu Sule.

“I wanna say thank you guys for getting my phone back to my life, man,” Meek can be heard saying in a video he posted to his Instagram Story showing his phone being returned. “Y’all ain’t let him hack me or nothing, did y’all, Commander?”

Meek later admitted that maybe his phone wasn’t stolen and instead it could have fallen out of his pocket while he was out riding his dirt bike.

“I coulda dropped that phone on a dirt bike I don’t actually know for a fact somebody went in my pocket!” he tweeted on Friday night.

“I got it back that’s all I needed I don’t need anybody locked up for a phone,” he wrote. “I don’t even know what happened to it.”
