Osun police arrest man for paying N2,650 for Toyota Camry car

The police in Osun have arrested a man, Ibrahim Abdulazeez, 30, who allegedly purchased a Toyota Camry 2010 model for N2,650 from a car dealer in Osogbo, Osun State.

Police commissioner Olawale Olokode while parading some suspects at the police headquarters in Osogbo on Friday, said the Mr Abdulazeez allegedly committed the offence on November 26, at 3:30 p.m.

Mr Olokode said that the suspect later through a bank transfer paid N2,650 for the car sold to him for N2.65million.

“The suspect went to one Kazeem Ogunjobi, a car dealer at Inyas Motors, Ota-Efun Area Osogbo, and negotiated for an unregistered Toyota Camry car without having money in his account.

“They both agreed on two million six hundred and fifty thousand Naira (N2,650,000).

“The complainant (car dealer) later reported to the police that the suspect collected his partner’s bank account details on the pretext that he would transfer the money into the account.

“But to their surprise, the suspect transferred the sum of N2,650 instead of the agreed price of N2,650,000 and went away with the said car,” the police chief explained.

Mr Olokode said police detectives recovered the car in a painters’ workshop in Iwo, Iwo Local Government Area of Osun after the case was reported.

Both Mr Abdulazeez and the painter would be charged to court after the completion of investigation on the case, Mr Olokode said.
