Man disappears with N55m Benz during test-drive in Abuja

The Abuja police command is presently looking for a person who is said to have fled with a Mercedes Benz GLB 250.

An auto dealer named Manga had filed a complaint alleging that a man named Henry, who claimed to live in Gwarinpa disappeared with one of his vehicles.

Manga’s friend, who also sells automobiles, drove the N55 million, 19000-mile Benz to the Henry for a test drive. After a brief break in the test drive, Manga’s companion left to make a cash withdrawal from a point of sale (PoS) employee and Henry drove off in the automobile.

Manga told TheCable;

“They negotiated N55m for the car and he said okay and demanded test-driving the car. He drove the car with my friend sitting on the passenger side of the vehicle and they drove out to the filling station opposite the automatic car wash in Garki to buy petrol before the test drive.

Immediately my friend stepped out of the car at the filling station to withdraw money from the PoS operator to buy fuel, the guy zoomed off with the vehicle.

You know how it is, there’s no traffic, no hold-up in Abuja and that’s how he absconded with the car.”

Josephine Ameh, spokesperson of Abuja police command, also told newsmen that officers are tracking the suspect.

She said;

“The incident has been reported to us and we have started tracking the suspect but as of now, we do not have any further update.
It is a huge loss to the vehicle owner and we are committed to getting to the root of the incident.”
