Operatives of the Lagos State Police Command have arrested a driver, Ortema Paul, and his guarantor, Iorfa Paul, for allegedly stealing their employer’s vehicle.

The 41-year-old Ortema was arrested within the Ojodu axis of Lagos State while on his way to sell his employer’s 2021 Toyota Hilux pickup van for N20 million.

The suspect was arrested on August 9, 2022, alongside his guarantor, Iorfa Paul, aged 40, and Ojo Solomon, aged 29, who was contracted to locate and disable the tracker in the vehicle.
