See Gobe! NNPC Driver In Lagos Court After N23M Company Bus Disappears While He Was At Lovers House
Aliyu, a casual worker, was arraigned on Monday on two counts of stealing in an Ikeja Magistrate’s Court.
A neighbor of the girlfriend had alerted the father of two children, around 4am that he saw some strange faces inside the bus. As Aliyu rushed out to know what was happening, the thieves reportedly zoomed off.
The 36-year-old indigene of Ilorin, Kwara State, was said to have reported the alleged theft at the Alapere Police Station and informed a manager of Doset Civil Engineering, which owned the vehicle.
Aliyu told the police that he had been driving the bus for over three years, stating that he had no hand in the stealing.
He said: ''I was employed by the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation as a casual worker sometime in 2014. At about 8pm on January 21, I went to my girlfriend’s house in Oriola to pass the night. A man came to wake me up around 4am that he saw sys inside the bus. Before I got to where the bus was, they had left with it. It was a mistake that I parked the bus on the street becaome bouse there is no security there."
The manager, Osele Philips, in his statement, stated that a specific and safe garage was provided for the driver to park the vehicle, saying the company suspected a foul play.
