The investigation led to the arrest of one Eze Arinze, 30, while trying to sell off the vehicle. The Toyota Corolla Saloon car was recovered successfully. Effort is ongoing to apprehend his accomplices.”
In another development, Hundeyin said that the command arrested two suspects for being in possession of weeds suspected to be Indian hemp.
