Following the public revelation of the incident, police caught a man who had previously fled with a Mercedes Benz worth millions of naira.
The Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Police Command has revealed that they are still looking for the stolen Mercedes Benz GLB 250, which was seized by a guy posing as a client in Abuja.
According to other accounts, Mohammed Manga, a car dealer, raised the alarm after a suspect named Henry, who disguised himself as a customer, departed with the vehicle during a test drive.
Mohammed revealed that one of his colleagues had given the Mercedes Benz to Henry, who pretended to be a potential buyer.
Unfortunately, when Henry asked to test drive the car, problems ensued.
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.”
