Andrew Agofure was caught with the G-wagon he stole in Lekki

A robbery suspect who stole a Benz G-Wagon has been arrested by the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), Lagos State Police Command.

The man identified as Andrew Agofure, suspected to have burgled a house at Lekki-Ajah area of the metropolis and stole a Mercedes Benz G-Wagon valued at N37 million was caught after investigators posed as buyers before arresting him.

According to NewTelegraph, Police said they were also looking for another suspect, identified simply as Patrick. The police believe that the fleeing Patrick masterminded the robbery.

A source said: “We didn’t, however, give up. We kept digging and finally tracked the car to Nasarawa State. We were shocked that the jeep had been moved from Lagos to Nasarawa State. When we discovered that it had been placed online for sale, we swung into action. Although it was moved to Nasarawa State, it was displayed at a car mart in Abuja.” The team of detectives that cracked the case was led by a Deputy Superintendent Police (DSP), Mr. Akinola Aduroja. The suspect, Agofure, was arrested on August 30.

The police alleged that Patrick drove the vehicle from Lekki-Ajah in Lagos State to Nasarawa State but placed at a car mart in Abuja for sale. The police disclosed that the jeep, which was N37 million, was placed on the online mart for N15 million.

Aduroja said: “We posed as buyers that wanted to buy the jeep for N15 million online. We arrested the suspect when he came to sell the jeep to us. The jeep, whose location was Abuja, was recovered in a forest in Nasarawa State around midnight.”

Aduroja said that on August 22, about 7.30p.m., Muiz Adebayo Ajayi, of No. 10A, Lucky Garden, Road 17, County Homes, Lekki-Ajah, Lagos reported a conspiracy, burglary and stealing to the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Mr Imohimi Edgal, through a petition. The petitioner alleged that he travelled to Kenya and upon his return on August 20; he discovered that the main gate to the compound had been broken by unknown persons.

Ajayi added that one jeep, with registration number BGD 2 EV and some electronics valued at N1.2 million were stolen from the house of his elder brother, Adekunle Odunlami, who was in Malaysia. In a bid to track down those that burgled the Lekki-Ajah home of the complainant, Aduroja and his men posed as buyers.

On September 6, Agofure appeared to pick the cheque for the car and was grabbed. Since Agofure’s arrest, police have been looking for Patrick. But Agofure said he did not know anything about the robbery. However, he said a man, Tony, who he met at a cybercafé and became friends with, taught him how to hack into different sites.
