A driver Wasiu Aliyu who drives a bus worth N23m is in deep mess after he woke up at his lover’s house and discovered that the bus has been stolen.  The bus which conveys Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation workers is a luxury bus.

Aliyu told the police that he had been driving the bus for over three years, stating that he had no hand in the stealing.

He said, “I was employed by the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation as a casual worker sometime in 2014. At about 8pm on January 21, I went to my girlfriend’s house in Oriola to pass the night. A man came to wake me up around 4am that he saw some boys inside the bus.

“Before I got to where the bus was, they had left with it. It was a mistake that I parked the bus on the street because there is no security there.”

He was said to have reported the alleged theft at the Alapere Police Station and informed a manager of Doset Civil Engineering, which owned the vehicle. The manager, Osele Philips, in his statement, stated that a specific and safe garage was provided for the driver to park the vehicle, saying the company suspected a foul play.

He said, “The 18-seater vehicle is owned by the firm, but used as the NNPC staff bus. On January 22, our driver attached to the staff bus called me at 7am and told me the staff bus had been stolen where he parked it to greet his sister after washing it.

“It was when I got to the police station that I knew the bus was stolen on January 22 at 4am and not January 21 as he earlier told me. The bus was stolen where he was not supposed to park it. With his action and the circumstances surrounding the theft of the vehicle, he is a prime suspect. The value of the vehicle is N23m.”
