Help! Lost mode on iPhone 5

Hey guys, so my phone was stolen from me as I slept in my car. I quickly put it in lost mode and I have been able to save its latest location whenever he switches it on. I live in Uganda and so there are a lot of computer technicians willing to take a chance and work on hacking it. The thing I am worried about is that he may be able to find a competent computer wizard who could find a way of hacking/bypassing the lost mode feature either through a software or hardware hack. I have already contacted the police and they are trying to track it. So is there any known way of bypassing the lost mode?
