The policemen had no option other than to pursue him and unfortunately for him, he was apprehended.
A search was then conducted by the police and it was discovered that the number plate of the vehicle was removed and kept in the car.
He was then interrogated and he confessed that he was working with a car wash in Festac Town, Lagos State.
He added that he was given the car by a customer to wash while the owner went to a nearby barbing saloon to have his hair cut.
However, he ran away with it immediately after the owner went to the barbering salon. He stated that he was on his way to neighbouring Benin Republic with the car when he was nabbed by the police.
