“These 2 criminals below are the riders that stabbed the driver and snatched the car. They drove off to the Ibeju Lekki axis. Unknowing to the criminals, the car had a tracker. The tracker was used to switch off the engine. The fools thought it was fuel.

“From the tracker’s voice recording, the car snatchers thought it was fuel shortage. They had no money to buy fuel, so they decided to sleep in the car till morning as it was very late at night. The Police followed the GPS and arrested the criminals sleeping right inside the car!”
