A preliminary investigation shows that the suspect, after presenting himself as a mechanic who could fix the motorcycle, asked the rider to go to the distant New Artisan, Enugu, to buy a sprocket, which he said was responsible for the breakdown of the motorbike. The rider complied but came back to meet the absence of the suspect, who had made away with the motorbike to the faraway Ogbadigbo Local Government Area of Benue State, where he was arrested by the operatives.

Given this unfortunate criminal circumstance, the public, particularly motorists, are hereby advised to be wary of who they allow to assist them in this manner, to avoid falling prey to such criminals and their activities.
