Answer:

Turn off Find My iPhone Activation Lock (formerly: Activation Lock: Removing a device from a previous owner’s account) - https://support.apple.com/HT201441 - If an activation lock was put on a device, only the owner of the account that applied the lock can remove it.

You can't. There is no way to bypass the activation lock. If your friend did not properly prepare it for sale, it's now too late to do anything about it.

Recycle it and buy a phone you can use. That one is a brick.
