The founder of the All People’s Congress (APC), Hassan Ayariga has cautioned the public not to use mobile phones while charging it after his handset burst into flames shortly after he ended a call.
Mr Ayariga in a viral video posted on Facebook said his phone burst into flames five minutes after he reconnected it to the charger following a conversation.
He said: Early this morning after I received a call from a friend, I put the phone on charge and in less than five minutes the phone started burning
"As you can see, it's an S5 totally burnt and even the table on which it was lying got burnt.
So this thing is serious, please watch out do not use your phone while charging it... It's not a story, its reality," the former Presidential candidate stressed.
