Following the public announcement of the incident, the police have successfully apprehended a man who had previously absconded with a Mercedes Benz worth millions of naira.
The Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Police Command had disclosed their ongoing efforts to locate the stolen Mercedes Benz GLB 250, which was taken by an individual posing as a customer in Abuja.
According to additional reports, Mohammed Manga, a car dealer, had raised the alarm after a suspect known as Henry, who disguised himself as a customer, fled with the vehicle during a test drive.
Mohammed explained that one of his fellow car dealers had entrusted the Mercedes Benz to Henry, who claimed to be a potential buyer.
Unfortunately, trouble arose when Henry requested to test drive the car.
To the dismay of the car dealers, Henry swiftly accelerated and escaped with the vehicle, remaining hidden thereafter.
Approximately three days later, Mohammed reported the incident to the police.
However, there is now news that Henry, the customer-turned-thief, has been apprehended by law enforcement.
A social media user shared the update, stating, “Do you all remember this car that was stolen from Abuja while it was being test-driven? The thief has been caught in Asaba.”
