From a new report reaching us, the officers of the Ogun State Police Command have recently arrested a car wash attendant attempting to run off with a car given to him by one customer to wash.
The suspect, Kazeem Olarenwaju, caught with customer's Toyota Venza on his way to the Benin Republic
According to a report, the suspect identified as Kazeem Olarenwaju was caught with a Toyota Venza with registration number APP 775 GB. He was hotly chased by the policemen before they finally caught up with him.
Abimbola Oyeyemi, who happens to be the spokesperson for the state’s police command, while confirming the arrest, revealed that Olarenwaju was apprehended during a routine patrol led by CSP Shadrach Oriloye, who is the DPS at the Idiroko Division. In the company of his men, he spotted a Venza car with no number plate driving in such a way that looked suspicious.
As a result, the Toyota Venza was flagged down, but the driver didn’t yield to the police as he began to drive very fast to escape being caught. The spokesperson also added after they were able to chase down the suspect, they found the number plate hidden inside the vehicle.

From what we gathered, the suspect confessed during interrogation that he was working with a car wash in FESTAC town in Lagos, where he was given the car to wash by a customer. At the time when he was with the car, the owner had gone to a nearby barbing salon to have a haircut. Before the arrival of the owner, the car wash attendant had fled with the car.
The suspect was nabbed by the police on his way to the Benin Republic. The case was earlier reported by the owner at the police station in FESTAC. This has made the station to be on the lookout for that stolen car.
Edward Awolowo Ajogun, who is the State Commissioner of Police, instructed the command to investigate thoroughly into the past activities of the suspect before handing him over to the Lagos State Police Command for Prosecution.
