Mohammed Manga, a car dealer, has been thrown into disarray after a customer, simply named as Henry, stole one of his vehicles, a Mercedes Benz GLB 250 in Abuja.
According to The Punch, Manga stated that a buddy who is also in the business of selling automobiles came to his office in Abuja and asked him to carry the vehicle worth over N55 million to a possible customer who was interested in purchasing it.

Manga stated that after delivering the vehicle to the customer, who introduced himself as Henry, his friend informed him that after discussions, Henry asked a test drive and was accompanied by his friend.

Manga stated that his friend was with Henry while he was testing the vehicle, and that things changed when his friend informed Henry that he needed to withdraw money from a Point of Sale operator in order to purchase fuel for the vehicle at a filling station.

When his friend got out of the vehicle to make the withdrawal, Henry took off with the vehicle to an unknown location, he explained.

“A friend of mine called to tell me that he wants to take my Mercedes Benz GLB 250 to a customer,” Manga explained. He drove the car to his workplace, where the customer met him. He stated that the purchaser identified himself as Henry from Gwarinpa and that he discovered the vehicle on an online marketplace.

“He saw the car and liked it; they negotiated N55m for the car, and he said OK and demanded a test drive.” He drove the car with my friend on the passenger side, and they went to the filling station beside the automatic car wash in Garki to get petrol before the test drive.

“However, as soon as my friend got out of the car at the gas station to withdraw money from the PoS operator to buy fuel, the guy took off with the vehicle.” You know how it is in Abuja, there is no traffic, no holdups, and that’s how he got away with the car.”

Manga stated that he reported the issue to the command’s Anti-automobile Theft Unit, and that the stolen automobile is grey with a mileage of 19000.

Josephine Ameh, the FCT Police Public Relations Officer, verified the event, stating, “The police are tracking the suspect (Henry).”
