“On receiving the information, the DPO Onipanu led his detectives to the scene where Yisa Nwachukwu who had been earlier arrested for stealing a Bajaj motorcycle, charged to court and convicted was again arrested together with his receiver Yusuf Sanusi”
OyeyEmi said on interrogation, Yisa Nwachukwu admitted that he was employed as a driver by the owner of the truck and when he was not paid his salary, he decided to abscond with the truck.
“He stated further that on his way to Nsuka in Enugu State, the truck developed mechanical fault and since he has no money to fix it, he called the receiver Yusuf Sanusi who met him at Ore in Ondo State where the truck was towed to Ota after selling it to the receiver at the rate of N4000”
The police spokesman said in a related development, at the scene, another Gulf Bus with registration number FKJ 932 XS belonging to one Kingsley Unaka which was also stolen by Yisa Nwachukwu was recovered.
He said the Commissioner of Police Ahmed Iliyasu who commended his men for a job well-done advised members of the public to always have a background check on whoever they want to employ so as not to have an armed robber as a staff.
