The International Police has intercepted and recovered three cars, stolen from Nigeria in the neighbouring Niger Republic.

Nigeria Police Force Public Relations Officer, CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, said the achievement was recorded following credible intelligence and physical support from operatives of INTERPOL Niamey, which led to the trailing of a trans-border car theft syndicate and the eventual recovery of their loot.

The investigation which lasted for several days led to the recovery of a Toyota Camry with Chassis No: 4T1BE46K47U673141; Mercedes Benz 2012 550GL with Chassis No. 4JGBF8GE8CA762560, and a Hyundai vehicle with Chassis No: KMHDH41EBDU54686.

Reacting, Nigeria’s Inspector-General of Police, IGP Usman Baba, commended the cooperation and synergy between the 194 member-countries of the International Criminal Police Organisation, which has facilitated worldwide police cooperation for enhanced crime control.

The IGP equally hailed operatives of the Force Criminal Investigation Department, INTERPOL section, for leveraging the platform made available through INTERPOL to curb trans-border crimes especially crimes that cascade into other neighbouring African countries.
