ASP Rahman Nansel, the spokesperson of the Nasarawa Police Command, disclosed via his recent press statement that a Toyota Highlander SUV was recovered from Faisal Salihu. He revealed that the police were earlier notified on March 3 that a certain Sky-blue Toyota Highlander with plate number LSD 225 FD was allegedly snatched from an Abuja resident. The report claimed that the suspect snatched the SUV at gunpoint from the owner in the Zuba area of FCT (Abuja).
This earlier report prompted the Commissioner of Police to alert security personnel all over Nigeria to keep looking out for the stolen SUV and the suspect. Just a few days later, the Nasarawa State policemen attached to Karu LGA Command got credible intelligence which led them to apprehend Faisal Salihu at his hideout in the state where the stolen vehicle was fortunately recovered from him in good shape.
