A panel beater who specialises in vandalising vehicles has received the beating of his life after he was caught around 3am last night at Adenike Wole Ajibode Street in Lekki Phase 1.
According to LIB, the suspect identified himself as John from Kwale in Delta State after he was caught by a security officer while he was removing car parts from a Toyota Highlander. Before being caught, he had already taken some other parts from a Toyota Corolla on the same street.
The panel beater who confessed to having two other accomplices that work with him, disclosed that they sell some of the car parts for N20, 000 in Oshodi.
At one point, he was forced to show the residents how he operates as they waited for Police to arrive at the scene.
