Just when everyone is putting their minds at rest concerning car theft in Abuja, another outbreak is beginning to hit some areas again. See details as follow!

While everyone is still trying to understand how Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory of Nigeria could experience such a massive record of car theft occurrences over the past three months, another outbreak is yet coming back to plague the city again.

According to reports reaching us at Naijauto from reliable sources, over the last few weeks, car owners and motorists in some major parts of Abuja have started experiencing dangerous times. Most of the cities in Abuja have begun recording new car theft cases involving mostly Toyota and Mazda cars, as well as all other brands with low fuel consumption.

Car models such as the Toyota Sienna, Toyota Corolla S, Toyota Camry, and some Mazda models are the main targets of these Abuja car thieves because these car models are widely used for taxi purposes and common all over the city. This is especially between Nnamdi Azikwe Int. Airport and Abuja City Center.

It has also been observed that some areas in Abuja like Wuse, Garki, Utako, and Area 11 are currently the hotspot for these car thieves. As a matter of fact, a Toyota Corolla S with plate number KUJ359TV belonging to the FCTA’s former Deputy Director of Information was reported stolen just a week ago around the FCDA/AGIS area of Abuja.

So, who is safe now and who is not?
