Photo: Driver who escaped with employer’s N6.5m vehicle arrested
According to reports by Tribune, on April 10th this year, Kingsley drove his boss, Abosede Olubiyi, in her newly acquired Infinity FX 35 SUV to an appointment in Yaba, Lagos. When they got to their destination, the woman told Kingsley to find a place to park the car as there was no parking space in front of the building they were going to. The lady came down from the car and went for her appointment and that was the last time she saw Kingsley and her car.
The matter was immediately reported to the Lagos State Police command. In the course of their investigation, the police arrested a friend of Kingsley who they used as a bait to get him out of his hideout. The friend cooperated with the police and Nwabueze was traced to Imo State.
After some persuasion from his friend who lied to him that he had a very lucrative business for him, Kingsley appeared in Port Harcourt, where he was arrested.
Kingsley has since confessed to stealing his boss's car, saying that he had already put it up for sale at an Autoshop in Aba, Abia state.
