Operatives of Ijora Badia Division of the Lagos State Police Command have arrested four suspects who specialise in stealing vehicles and dismantling them for onward sales as spare parts.
The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Benjamin Hundeyin, disclosed this in a Wednesday statement.
“The suspects, Alafia Afiwajuomo, Ganiyu Tajudeen, Olamilekan Hassan and Lucky Esomojumi were arrested at Igamu under bridge following a painstaking investigation and intelligence gathering that was launched when information was received on the 29/09/2022 that a Toyota Camry was snatched at gunpoint from one Sandra (surname withheld) at Iganmu in Surulere, Lagos.
“The car was in the process of being dismantled before it was recovered by the police.
“Parts of cars suspected to have been dismantled and sold as spare parts were also recovered at the scene,” the statement read in part.
The police spokesman said the suspects have been charged to court.
