A fleeing suspect who was arrested by the Police on Thursday has narrated why he escaped with a Mercedez Benz GLB 250 4MATIC car worth around N55 million during a test drive in Abuja.
The suspect spoke to newsmen in Delta State after he was arrested.
As earlier reported by Naija News, the car was stolen in Abuja on June 30 and was later recovered where it was abandoned in a bush along Oteri road by Doctors Quarters Ughelli North Local Government Area of Delta State on July 3.
The 25-year-old suspect identified as Meshach Siunuphro, was later arrested in Benin City, Edo State.
Siunuphro who claimed to be a 300-level student of Business Administration in Turkey, said he was hypnotized. He added that he was also into forex trade, and intended to buy the car for personal use.
The Delta Police PRO, Bright Edafe during the parade of the suspect, seized the opportunity to advise car dealers and car owners to be wary of the new scheme by criminals to snatch cars from people.
He cautioned those who take their cars to car wash centres never to hand over the keys to the attendants.
