A 21-year-old Nigerian man, identified as Temple Samuel, has been arrested for allegedly stealing his boss’ car in Lagos.
The suspect was arrested by operatives of the Lagos Rapid Response Squad (RRS) in the Ogba area of Lagos State, along with his three accomplices, Benjamin Bassey (32), Chukwuemeka Okorie (29) and Joshua Agboche (37).
Following the investigation, it was discovered that the suspect who works in a car wash at Egbeda stole his boss’ Lexus ES 330 car in the middle of the night and carted away his iPhone X and iPhone 13 as well.
