A driver, Emmanuel John,has been arrested for allegedly duplicating his boss’ car key and attempting to abscond with it. John, 26, was arrested at Abraham Adesanya Estate in Lekki last Sunday night for alleged attempted theft of the Toyota Corolla car marked EPE 642 DX, which he planned to take to a Valentine’s Day party at Splash Hotel in Sangotedo, Ajah. John had a week before his plan, cut the Toyota Corolla key without the knowledge of his boss, Mrs Flora Ighalo.
On Sunday afternoon when he was not supposed to be at work, he allegedly sneaked into the Abraham Adesanya Estate residence of his boss, and took away the car with the cut key.
RRS quoted John as saying:
“I and my friend, Oscar, want to carry the Toyota Corolla to Splash Hotel’s Valentine Show on Sunday night. I persuaded Madam to give me the go-ahead to cut a spare key but she declined. A week before February 14, I duplicated the key without her knowledge in Obalende.
“Even though, she excuses me from work on Sundays, I sneaked into her residence and took away the car after church. I took the car to my residence in Ajuwe Area, Ajah, Lagos.
