Police in Lagos have recovered a supposedly stolen car from some persons after they were stopped for a routine search.
The spokesman for the Command, SP Benjamin Hundeyin said the suspects ran away leaving the car behind before they could be apprehended.
“Yesterday, at about 2:30am, a black 2002 Toyota Camry V6 saloon car, with reg no JJJ 367 FJ, with about three occupants, was flagged down by officers of Ijora-Badia Division on routine patrol. The driver sped off and turned into an adjoining street.”
He added that the Toyota Camry is available at the station for the rightful owner to come and get it.
“The police gave chase and met the vehicle abandoned. All occupants had escaped. Vehicle has been recovered to the station. We urge the owner of this suspected stolen vehicle to come forward with proof of ownership to claim the vehicle.”
