Police Arrest Man For Fraudulently Stealing A Dispatch Rider’s Motorcycle In Enugu

Enugu Police Command Operatives serving in Awkunanaw Police Division, on Monday, 1st April 2024, at about 5:30 p.m., arrested one Musa Abdullahi, aged 22, in Ogbadigbo Local Government Area of Benue State, and recovered a Logistics Company’s Daylong Motorcycle, which he fraudulently stole from its rider (names withheld) at One-Day, Agbani Road, Enugu, at about 3:00 p.m. on the same date.

According to a press release on Friday, 5th April 2024 signed by the Enugu State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Daniel Ndukwe, said that the suspect’s arrest is following the receipt of a report from the rider alleging how the suspect unsuspectingly made away with the motorcycle under the pretence of being a mechanic and could fix the motorbike, which broke down at the mentioned location in Enugu.

The statement read, “A preliminary investigation shows that the suspect, after presenting himself as a mechanic who could fix the motorcycle, asked the rider to go to the distant New Artisan, Enugu, to buy a sprocket, which he said was responsible for the breakdown of the motorbike.

“The rider complied but came back to meet the absence of the suspect, who had made away with the motorbike to the faraway Ogbadigbo Local Government Area of Benue State, where he was arrested by the operatives.

“Given this unfortunate criminal circumstance, the public, particularly motorists, are hereby advised to be wary of who they allow to assist them in this manner, to avoid falling prey to such criminals and their activities.
