The police in Ogun state have arrested two brothers, Emanuel Nwachukwu 28 years and Sunday Nwachukwu, 24 years, for allegedly stealing a Toyota Camry car with registration number JJJ 661 GJ.
The two suspects were arrested by men of Federal Highway patrol while on their way to Imo state. They were caught by policemen on stop and search duty along Lagos/Ibadan expressway. The vehicle was stopped for routine check at about 11:30 pm, but while the officers were asking questions from one of them who drove the car, the two brothers who were the occupants suddenly abandoned the car and took to their heels.
