Police Arrest Army Sergeant For Stealing Land Rover SUV From Nigerian Minister

A Nigeria army sergeant has been arrested by the Kwara state police command for stealing a Land Rover SUV from the Minister of State for Niger Delta, Prof Claudius Daramola in his Ilorin home.
The soldier, Solomon Abel and four others were on Thursday paraded by the police. The other suspects are Dedeigbo Olabiyi, Raymond Anyam, Sunday Shakede and Kingsley Chijoke.

He said the gang had stormed the Minister’s house located in Tanke, Ilorin on November 21 to take the car, with registration number IWA 01.

They were later flagged down by a security cordon along Ajase-Ipo road in Ilorin, where their identities were discovered.

Abel, who claimed to be serving at the 143 Battalion, Minakra in Adamawa state, said he was lured by his friend, Olabiyi, a former driver with the minister, to come and do ‘escort service’ for a car not knowing it was stolen.
