Police Arrest Two For Stealing, Selling Vehicle In Minna


The Niger State Police Command has arrested two suspects in the Sauka-Kahuta area of Minna for stealing a white Toyota Corolla vehicle with Reg. No. ABC 72 NF.

According to a statement issued by the Niger State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), SP Wasiu A Abiodun, Police operatives attached to SCID, Minna on Friday, 14/6/2024 at about 1840hours, arrested the two Gwaza Bulus 41years of Zango-Kataf, Kaduna State and Yahaya Amodu 45years of Kwakuti, Niger State.

During interrogation, Bulus narrated that he met one Daniel at Area 3 in Abuja and they exchanged pleasantry having discovered that they were both brothers from Kaduna.

According to Bulus, “I was introduced to Abdul by Daniel who told Abdul that he needed a job, while Abdul said that he has a vehicle they could sell for him.

Abdul contacted me on May 31 and gave me an imitated vehicle key. He said to me that the vehicle would be parked at Central Mosque area Abuja by the road during Juma’at Prayer with a good description.”

He added that he went to the Central Mosque Area and drove the vehicle away.

Bulus confessed that he took the vehicle to Kwakuti in Niger State to meet Yahaya whom he had met on social media as a vehicle dealer, and he left the vehicle for a while with Yahaya hoping that the vehicle could be sold quickly.

Accordingly, he said, “Due to delay, I went back to Yahaya on June 14th and we decided to bring the vehicle to Minna for quick disposal.”

Luck however ran out on them as they were arrested in the process of selling of the vehicle without a document as they negotiated to sell the car at the rate of six million, five hundred thousand naira (N6,500,000).

Wasiu disclosed that the two suspects are under investigation in SCID Minna, while an effort is ongoing to arrest the said Abdul and the case will be transferred to FCT Command for further investigation and prosecution.
