Toyota Hilux Van Of Police Affairs Ministry Stolen In Abuja

LAGOS JUNE 20TH (NEWSRNAGERS)-A white Toyota Hilux Pickup with registration number FG79-A23 has been reported stolen in Abuja.

The car owned by the Nigerian government is attached to the Federal Ministry of Police Affairs.

The Police Ministry is to, among others initiate, formulate and implement policies and programmes relating to policing and internal security as well as provide supervision and administrative support to the Nigeria Police Force (NPF), the Police Academy (POLAC) and the newly established Nigeria Police Trust Fund (NPTF).

SaharaReporters learnt that the car was stolen around Gwarimpa in Abuja on Tuesday night.

“They just stole my car HILUX (WHITE) in Gwarinpa 3rd avenue 35 road. plate number (Police Affarirs) FG. please rt, thank you,” @mvccido_szn who the vehicle was assigned to posted on X.

There is seemingly a recent increase in the reported cases of car theft in the nation’s capital, Abuja.

The FCT Police Commissioner, CP Benneth Igweh, in May paraded 12 suspects over car theft and ‘one-chance’ robbery.

‘One-chance’ is commonly used in Nigeria to refer to fraud or scam and also when a group of criminals picks up passengers waiting for a taxi or bus, to rob or defraud them.

According to Igweh, three exotic vehicles identified as Toyota Camry with Reg No. Lagos 23, Audi A4 with Reg No. KRD 349 JD and Honda Accord Sports with Reg No. BDG 42 JC were recovered from them.

He added that the cars’ chassis numbers had been altered by the suspects.
