Three days after 22-year-old Issa Muhammed was employed as a car washer, he was arrested by the police for absconding with a Customer’s Car.
Disclosing the arrest on Tuesday, the spokesperson, Lagos State Police Command, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, said that the operatives of the Rapid Response Squad (RRS) arrested the suspect after making away with a 2012 Toyota Camry handed over to him for cleaning in Isheri, Lagos.
Issa Muhammed Sunday was picked up on 9th September, 2023, in the Agege area of Lagos State where he parked the car to link up with a buyer.
Preliminary investigations revealed that the car was handed over to the suspect three hours earlier by the owner in preparation for a family outing later in the afternoon.
Mohammed, who was employed as a car washer three days before the incident, had removed the number plate of the car and discarded all identities linking the car to its owner immediately after he arrived at Agege.
The CSP Olayinka Egbeyemi-led RRS will be charging the matter to court immediately investigation is concluded.
