A suspect, Meshach Sinuphro, who stole a Mercedes Benz worth N55m from a car dealer in the Federal Capital Territory last Wednesday, has been arrested by the Decoy Squad of the Edo State Police Command.
In a post on Twitter on Thursday, the Delta State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Bright Edafe, said Sinuphro was apprehended in Benin City, Edo State.
According to DSP Edafe, “the suspect, Meshack Sinuphro, who allegedly stole the Benz at Abuja while pretending to be a buyer, has been arrested by the Command Decoy Squad today in Benin City.
“The suspect will be transferred to the FCT Command soonest. Always report crimes to the police, and we will always deliver.”
It was gathered that seven days after Sinuphro absconded with the Mercedes Benz GLB 250 in the FCT, men of the Nigerian Police Force detailed to investigate the case recovered the stolen vehicle in the Ughelli North Local Government Area Delta State.
The owner of the vehicle, Mohammed Manga, in an interview with newsmen, said the suspect absconded with the vehicle during a test drive.
