A driver, Samuel Inyang have appealed to the Inspector General of Police, IGP Ibrahim Mohammed, Assistant Inspector General of Police, AIG in charge of Zone 2 Command, Lagos, Ahmed Ilyasu and the Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, CP Hakeem Odumosu to come to his rescue and assist him to arrest his boss, Mr Emmanuel, a resident of Grace Land Estate, Ajah, Lagos for Duping him of the sum of N1.95m he paid him for a 14 seater bus on hire purchase transactions and seizing the bus.
Inyang said he decided to cry to the Police boss because he is a poor driver who have nobody to fight for him as his boss had been boasting that nobody can retrieve the bus from him since he is a Security Officer, and that if he ask of the bus again, he would kill him.
Narrating his ordeals, Inyang stated: “I had a hire purchase agreement with my boss, Emmanuel, a resident of Graceland Estate, Ajah, Lagos for a 14 seater bus for N1.780 000 between March 2019 and March 2020 and I paid him the sum of N1.950,000 due to miscalculation. I have the payment papers as evidence.
“I parked the bus at a mechanic workshop at Ajah during the lockdown with the hope to take possession of the bus after the lockdown, but I was shocked my boss went to where I parked the bus to remove the bus and seized it.
“When I confronted him why he seized the bus I had already completed the payment, he arrested me with the Police at Ajah Division to intimidate me and he warned me not to ask him about the bus I suffered to pay for or else he would kill me and the Police did not allow me to explain the matter to them.
“I am now appealing to IGP Adamu, AIG Ilyasu and CP Odumosu to, as a matter of urgency assist me to arrest my boss to explain why he seized the bus I had already paid for just because I have nobody to fight for me.”
I also urged the police boss to investigate my boss if his claims of being a Security personnel is true.
When 4eyenews contacted Emmanuel on phone for comment on the matter, he confirmed the development and said that he seized the bus to compel the driver, Samuel to pay him the N150,000 cash he borrowed him to repair the bus.
When asked while he did not allow the driver to work with the bus to payback the N150,000 since the money was spent on the bus, Mr Emmanuel could not give satisfactory answer.
