A Nigerian lady has revealed how she was able to retrieve her stolen car despite the alleged negligence of the Nigerian police towards the case.
She alleged that her car was stolen on the 8th of January. Luckily, she had an app which she used to track her car’s location, and subsequently took to the police.
She claimed the police told her that they would send someone to pick it up in the next 48 hours which didn’t sit well with her.
She decided to embark on the journey alone and was able to get back her car. When the she found the car it had been broken into and the steering was also broken.
In her words:
“Woke up this morning to go about my merry way only to find that my beautiful car, my baby, was no longer on my driveway. My car had been stolen overnight. On this 8th day of a new year o. My first reaction was na wa o, they didn’t even let me finish new year waka.
“I nearly laughed out loud because this year was already showing itself and I was like on top of everything?
Anyway, I rang the police and reported the theft. I brought up CCTV footage and was watching these merry fellows make away with my car. And then I remembered that my app has my car last trip location. So I looked it up and gave the police and they said someone will go within 48 hours. 48 whole hours! As in 48 x 60 minutes. Long story short I went to the location myself. I didn’t know what to expect and I can’t even lie I was scared af.
“When I got there, there was someone standing watch over the car and smoking, so I called the police again. Luckily I had my keys, and when I tried the car unlocked. The man was watching me and I was watching him but the police were on the phone so I had small courage.
“I unlocked the car and got in. They had broken the steering wheel to get the wheel lock off and ransacked the car but when I tried it started. Brethren, I carried my car o. I got in and drove to my house. I was my own police, my own recovery person. In fact Benoit Blanc no do pass me.
“Met police have marked it as a solved case but they had better put my name down as the “solver”. They’ve been talking about forensic evidence etc but I know it’s not going anywhere.
“I’m actually sooooo thankful because honestly I’ve not been in the best mental space and dealing with losing my car would have been the worst. Anyway I’ve decided that my year has just started and I’m reclaiming this year same way I reclaimed my car, so happy new year to you all!”
