Nabbed! Police Arrest Car Wash Attendant who Stole Customer’s SUV to Get Back at his Employer

A 23-year-old car wash attendant in Abuja, Afeez Ayo, has been arrested for stealing a customer’s 2008 Toyota Highlander SUV allegedly to punish his employer for planning to sack him.

Ayo, a holder of an Ordinary National Diploma, was said to have changed the number plate of the vehicle and driven it to Ibadan from where he picked four passengers en route to Lagos.

According to Punchng, the suspect was arrested at Agodi Junction, Ibadan. The owner of the SUV, Mrs. Adenike Sani, had left the car with Ayo at a car wash at the Apo Resettlement Centre, Abuja, only for him to disappear with the vehicle.

Detectives were said to have tracked the vehicle to Oyo State where it was recovered and the suspect apprehended. Ayo revealed he stole the SUV to get back at the management of the car wash facility for planning to relieve him of his job.

The 23-year-old said he conveyed four passengers to Lagos from Ibadan and charged them N500 each to raise money to fuel the SUV. Asked how he managed to beat the many security checkpoints on the highway, Ayo explained that he refused to stop when waved down by policemen.

The police advise motorists against leaving their car keys with car wash attendants, noting that incidents of car theft were on the rise.
