The Cross River State Police Command has arrested a middle-aged man, Godswill Ezekiel Ugbe, for attempting to sell his employer’s car for a paltry N350,000 naira in Calabar.
The suspect was arrested by the anti-kidnapping and cultism Squad AKCS while driving the car to the potential buyer’s place around Akpabuyo Local Government Area of the state.
The feat is coming barely three days after PCRC awarded the Commander of AKCS (Dragon) SP Abdulhameed Awodi for quality Service to humanity, in their just-concluded security summit, in Calabar.
Security sources said, a Toyota Camry with Reg No: KT 114 LH was recovered through intelligence policing by the Dragon Squad.
According to Tribune, while on patrol along Atimbo Akpabuyo Road, the Dragon squad sighted a Toyota Camry which they suspected was stolen and on approaching the vehicle, the driver zoomed off towards Bakassi where Dragon chased him and apprehended him.
The suspect, Godswill Ugbe, whose employer lives abroad, employed him as a gateman and security guard to watch over his property, including the building and two cars, where he removed the car to sell at 350,000 naira before he was arrested in the process.
When contacted on Tuesday, Police Public Relations Officer in the state, DSP Irene Ugbo, confirmed the arrest, adding that the suspect would soon be charged to court.
