Man, 26, Confesses Buying Toyota Camry Of N2.6m With N2,650


A man is currently in Police custody at Osun State after confessing to have purchased a Toyota Camry car valued at N2,650,000 with only N2,650.

The suspect, Abdulazeez Ibrahim, 26, who was paraded at the Osun State Police Command Headquarters in Osogbo at the weekend, said he summoned courage to transfer the sum of N2,650 to the car dealer, Kazeem Ogunjobi, who gave him the vehicle documents and he drove off.

He said, “I owned a motorcycle and a small Mazda car. But on a Friday last month, I left Iwo for Osogbo on the motorcycle to get a bigger car. I got to a dealer and negotiated Toyota Camry car, we agreed on N2,650,000 but I transferred N2,650 to his account.

“He gave me the car documents. I drove it straight to Iwo and later came back to Osogbo to pick my motorcycle.

“I did not use any charm to buy the car, it was just luck. I just summoned the courage to transfer the money to him and he handed over the car. I drove the car to the painter in Iwo to repaint it to another colour after a little bodywork on the rear bumper. And I was arrested by Police before the painter completed his job”, he said.

The Osun State Commissioner of Police, Olawale Olokode, while addressing journalists, said immediately the case was reported to the Command by the car dealer, detectives swung into action and the Toyota Camry car was recovered in a painter’s workshop in Iwo.

He said the shop belonged to one Olayinka Bashiru, adding that he was already changing the colour of the car from green to gold as he was instructed by the suspect, who according to him would be charged to court after the completion of an investigation into the case.
