tracked the car to Nasarawa State. We were shocked that the jeep had
been moved from Lagos to Nasarawa State. .

we discovered that it had been placed online for sale, we swung into
action. Although it was moved to Nasarawa State, it was displayed at a
car mart in Abuja.” .
The police
alleged that Patrick drove the vehicle from Lekki-Ajah in Lagos State to
Nasarawa State but placed at a car mart in Abuja for sale. The police
disclosed that the jeep, which was N37 million, was placed on the online
mart for N15 million. .
According to
NewTelegraph, the team of detectives that cracked the case was led by a
Deputy Superintendent Police (DSP), Mr. Akinola Aduroja.
