Similarly, Ikenga said the Inland Police Division on March 22, received a complaint that a Lexus 330 SUV got missing at a car wash on Heritage Road.

He said all efforts made to locate the vehicle and operator of the car wash proved abortive.

“Preliminary investigation revealed that the car was stolen and taken to Uyo, Akwa Ibom State,” the spokesman added.
