The lady, Mitchel Harrold, 37, from Warri, Delta State, was on Tuesday arrested after the operatives traced her through a car dealer in Lagos, whom she had engaged to help perfect import papers for the stolen car
It was learnt that the suspect had on Thursday, 19th January, 2017, together with her man friend, checked into the hotel, with the plan to spend the night. Harrold had, after settling down, gone to get a malt drink and yoghurt, while the man was taking his bath.
He took the drink and slept off at 6:00 p.m, to wake up around 2:00 p.m, the following day, with his laptop, car and phone gone.
He said: “I am getting to know her for real now. She only gave me Aisha Ibrahim as her name.” Arrested alongside suspect, was Adesanya Gbenga, a generator repairer, whom she engaged to drive the stolen vehicle.
According to Gbenga Adesanya, “I was surprised to see her opening the gate of the hotel herself for me to drive out instead of the gateman. That wasn’t the first time I helped her take vehicles out of Lagos to Sapele. It was about the third time.
First, it was a Toyota Camry “Big for Nothing”. The second one was an “End of Discussion” Honda Accord and thirdly, Volkswagen Passat, 2001 model.” Harrold told investigators that she met her man friend on Baddo.
