A 21-year-old Nigerian man, identified as Temple Samuel, has been arrested for allegedly stealing his boss’ car in Lagos.

The suspect was arrested by operatives of the Lagos Rapid Response Squad (RRS) in the Ogba area of Lagos State, along with his three accomplice, Benjamin Bassey (32), Chukwuemeka Okorie (29) and Joshua Agboche (37).

Following investigation, it was discovered that the suspect who works in a car wash at Egbeda stole his boss’ Lexus ES 330 car in the middle of the night and carted away his iPhone X and iPhone 13 as well.

He also fraudulently transferred N75,000 from his boss’ account to his personal account.

Upon interrogation, the suspect said he planned to use the money he makes from selling the items to process his relocation abroad.

The state Commissioner of Police, CP Abiodun Alabi, has directed that the case be transferred to the State CID, Panti, for further investigations and prosecution.

In other news, another young man identified as Samuel Owolabi has landed himself in Police Net after he sold his mother’s car without her knowledge in Lagos.

According to the Police spokesperson, Ben Hundeyin, a son or daughter cannot sell their parent’s property without consent and thus, Samuel committed a crime.

He added that the mother was not aware of her son’s actions and she was shocked when she was called to come pick the car.
