A car wash attendant has been arrested by operatives of the Rapid Response Squad (RRS) after he absconded with a 2012 Toyota Camry handed over to him for cleaning in Isheri, Lagos.
The suspect, Issa Muhammed, aged 22, was nabbed on Sunday, September 9, 2023, in the Agege area of Lagos State where he parked the car to link up with a buyer.
This was disclosed in a terse statement issued by the Lagos State Police Spokesman, Benjamin Hundeyin.
According to the statement, preliminary investigations reveal 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 at the car wash 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,” the statement reads.
