27 years old man paid N2,650 for a Camry car worth N2.6 million in Osogbo

By Our Correspondent

Osun State Police Command have arrested a 27-year-old man, Abdulazeez Tunde Ibrahim for allegedly buying a Toyota Camry Car popularly known as with “Muscle”, N2,650.

The State Commissioner of Police, Wale Olokode, who paraded Ibrahim alongside nine other criminals in Osogbo, said,  though, the vehicle is worth N2.6 million, but Abdulazeez tricked a car dealer in Osogbo, the state capital, to get the car.

Speaking with newsmen, Abdulazeez said he went to the car dealer at his stand, chose the car and negotiated the price.

After negotiation, they (the seller and the buyer) agreed on two million six hundred and fifty thousand naira (N2,650,000) and he requested the account details of the car dealer.

Instead of paying the agreed N2,650,000, Abdulazeez confessed that he transferred N2,650 to the car dealer and after confirming the credit alert, he collected a receipt of N2,650,000 and took the car to a painter to change the colour.

The Commissioner of Police said the car dealer later realised that it was N2,650 that Abdulazeez transferred to him and reported the matter to police.

Olokode said police detectives traced Abdulazeez to Iwo and recovered the car from the painter’s workshop.

The painter, Olayinka Bashiru was also arrested and detained alongside Abdulazeez.

The CP also paraded four men, Sunday Olajide, Hammed Semiu, Salawudeen Lukman and Isiaka Salawudeen for allegedly killing a woman in Ile-Ife for money rituals.

Other suspects, including Jelili Jimoh and Olowokere Mojeed, who were said to have stolen BAJAJ motorcycles in Osogbo and two security guards who reportedly burgled the shop that they were employed to protect, were paraded.

Olokode said all the suspects would be charged to court after the completion of investigation.
