Trans-Border Crime: Nigeria Police Recover Three Stolen Vehicles From Niger Republic

Nigerian police have recovered Toyota Camry, Mercedes-Benz and Hyundai vehicles from the Republic of Niger.

The representative of the force, CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, who revealed this in an announcement on Friday, June 24, said that the three vehicles, which were taken from Nigeria, were recovered with the help of agents of the Global Crook Police (Interpol) in Niamey.

Adegobe said the achievement was scored after insight and actual help from Interpol agents in Niamey, leading a vehicle theft organization through the lines and the inevitable recovery from their loot, the representative said.

The statement read: “The inspection, which lasted for a few days, resulted in the recovery of a Toyota Camry with body number: 4T1BE46K47U673141, a 2012 Mercedes-Benz 550GL with tire number 4JGBF8GE8CA762560, and a Hyundai with body number: KMHDH41EBDU54686.”

“Likewise, the IGP has emphasized that such a multilateral relationship is key to stopping abuse and guilt from truly developing.

He encouraged individuals from the general public to report cases of the vehicles being taken so that a short and vital step towards their recovery could be taken, both in and out of the state.

“The Police Examiner General accused the Nigerians of exploiting participation to recover the seized items, especially the vehicles, and asked the owners of the previously mentioned vehicles to move towards the Criminal Examination Division of the Nigerian Police Authority, INTERPOL Division, at Central Energy Command, Abuja, to recover and condition their vehicles, with substantial evidence on possession and the appropriate method of distinguishing evidence.”

Meanwhile, examination of the matter is still progressing in an effort to apprehend all those complicit in the situation.
