Police search for woman’s vehicle stolen by carjackers
Suspected car thieves stole a car belonging to an Abuja housewife, Ms. Nonso Emerenini, from the Kuje area of Abuja on Friday.
Sunday punch understood that Emerenini had parked the car along the road and went to the Kuje forest market to buy groceries when the suspected car thieves broke into the car and drove off.
The incident, our correspondent learned, happened around 11 a.m. on Friday.
Speaking to her husband, Emmanuel Emerenini, who raised the alarm on Twitter after the incident, noted that the car was a gold-coloured Toyota Sienna 2000 model, with registration number: ABJ614DG.
Emmanuel said: “According to my personal investigations conducted so far, the car is still somewhere in Kuje. The carjackers couldn’t get far. My wife went to the forest market, Kuje, to buy food. She parked her Sienna along the road like the other cars. She didn’t even spend much time at the market as she had other things to do at home when she went out and found her car missing. It was no longer where he was parked.
“She sounded the alarm and people were looking for the car. Some said they saw people getting the car out. She immediately called me and I posted it on Twitter for people to help us. I tagged the police who responded saying they were aware of the situation.
“But, so far, the police haven’t contacted me even though we went to Kuje Division Headquarters to make an official report on the stolen car.”
When contacted, FCT Police Command spokeswoman Josephine Edeh confirmed the incident, saying the police were aware of the matter.
“I can confirm that. We are aware of the matter and efforts are in high gear for recovery,” Edeh said.
