Two Brothers Who Stole A Car In Lagos Were Nabbed While Trying To Escape To Imo

Two brothers who reportedly stole a Toyota Camry in Lagos have been arrested by the Ogun State Police Command.

The suspects were arrested on Wednesday by its officers on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway while trying to escape with the stolen car to Imo State.

The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, SP Abimbola Oyeyemi, disclosed this in a statement on Thursday.

Oyeyemi explained that the suspects, who worked at a car wash, stole the car from a customer who took his car to them for a  service.

He said, “Police in Ogun State on the 30th of November 2022 arrested two brothers, Emanuel Nwachukwu 28 years. and Sunday Nwachukwu 24 years, for stealing a Toyota Camry with registration number JJJ 661 GJ while on their way taking the said vehicle to Imo state.

“The two suspects were arrested by men of the Federal Highway patrol, who were on a stop-and-search duty along Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.

“The vehicle was stopped by the policemen for routine check at about 11:30 pm, but while the officers were asking questions from one of them who drove the car, the two brothers who were the occupants suddenly abandoned the car and took to their heels.

“They were hotly chased and apprehended by the policemen, who there and then took them to the Ewu-Oliwo divisional headquarters for proper interrogation.

“On  interrogation, the two brothers who live at No 2, Onifade street, Fagba Lagos confessed to stealing the car from one Bello Muyideen Kolawole of Arobaba street, Idimu Lagos.

“Upon their confession, the DPO Ewu-Oliwo division, CSP Toyosi Bello, quickly got in touch with the said owner, who confirmed that the two brothers were working at a car wash very close to his shop, and that he took the car to the place for wash,  only for the two brothers to run away with it.”

The PPRO, however, said  the Commissioner of Police, CP Lanre Bankole, had directed that the two suspects be transferred to State Criminal Investigation Department for onward transfer to the Lagos State Command, where the crime was originally committed.
