It is said that every day is for the thief and one day is for the owner of the house. Well, it has played out as we report the story here on Naijauto.com.
Officers of the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) has apprehended two men suspected to be car thieves at PDP headquarters, Abuja.
The two robbers gave their names as Abdul Bello, from Kwara state and James Ayuba, an indigene of Nasarawa state. Both were caught at Micheal Okpara street in Wuse area, zone 6, next to Wadata plaza.
PDP headquarters - where the incident took place
Ayuba made some claims of being an electrician residing in Sharp corner, Mararaba area, while his accomplice, Bello, claimed as well to be a car mechanic and has nothing to do with car robbery. The two suspects ran out of luck as their shady patrol around a car was been observed by a street photographer who quickly raised an alarm, alerting the police officers posted at the PDP headquarters.
The car in question is a Honda brand widely known as 'Baby boy' and its registration number is Abuja BF 438 KWL.
Moreover, Ayuba who denied his involvement in the robbery also claimed not knowing Bello, his accomplice. While explaining to the police, he said he was heading towards Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) for the submission of his curriculum vitae (CV). But Ayuba's claims were all a cover-up as the police used Ayuba's phone and put a call through to Bello's number, which showed 'Acid' as the caller name.
The robber was caught after police called his friend
While the car thieves were being interrogated, FIRS staffs and other people who had been victims of car robbery along that area gathered around the PDP headquarters. They demanded that the robbers be brought to justice.
The suspected car thieves, however, have confessed to the accusations, as revealed by one of the police officers who also said they will be taken to Wuse police station.
Some items were recovered from them which include car keys spanners, scissors, and other tools.
