I CAN’T BELIEVE THIS, CAN IT HAPPEN IN NIGERIA
Mr. Derick Goosen a Pretoria South African business man on Monday said he got a surprised call from warrant officer Kwakwa Ntokola two weeks ago about a gray 1988 Toyota Corolla. He said he had reported the stolen car case back in 1993, only to be called and reunited with his car 22 years after it was stolen, thanks to a dogged police investigator.
Goosen said that it was only in 2014, that the police seized a vehicle at a roadblock in the northern province of Limpopo due to the fact that its engine number had been scratched off.
He said that the stolen car was returned to him after 22 years with everything inside still in perfect order.
“I can’t believe it, everything inside is still in perfect order. “I’m going to wash it and drive around in it.’’
Police Col. Ronel Otto said that Ntokola managed to reconstruct the number and eventually traced the owner to Pretoria.
