The Sagamu Unit Command of Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) in Ogun says it has handed over a stolen Mercedes Benz ML 350 and an abandon Mack Truck to the police on Thursday.
The Sagamu Unit Commander of FRSC, Mr Taofiq Iyanda, disclosed this during the handing over of the vehicles to the police in Sagamu, Ogun.
Iyanda said that the stolen vehivle, with registration number: AKD 743 BV, was recovered by the FRSC patrol team on March 4, 2019.
“The stolen vehicle was recovered at Danco filling station on Ibadan-Lagos expressway after being used by a criminal to hit the road divider.
“The criminal had no choice than to run away and leave the vehicle since it could no longer move,” he said.
Iyanda said that the Sagamu RS 2.25 officials recovered the vehicle during a routine patrol, as it was causing an obstruction, but later found out after thorough investigation that it was a stolen vehicle from Ibadan.
“The abandoned Mack Truck, marked FST 413 XM, was recovered at Sagamu interchange on March 14 by the patrol team,’’ he said.
Insp. Makanjuola Samuel, the Ashi Police Divisional Officer in Ibadan, Oyo State, collected the key of the stolen vehicle and commended the efforts of the FRSC for its recovery.
Samuel urged FRSC to continue with its good job and its collaboration with the police to fight crime in the state and the nation at large.
