A Nigerian, who sought for a job as a sales boy only to bolt away, a day after, with his employer’s personal Toyota Saloon car is in the grips of the Nungua police.
The boy, Shadrack Ojo was alleged to have approached Mrs Sussana Amagbor following her advertisement for the position of a sales person and introduced himself as a Nigerian who was in Ghana to go through the necessary formalities to enter the Regional Maritime University located at Nungua.
Mr Ojo therefore asked to be given the vacant job while he waited to put the necessary things in place regarding his mission for coming into the country.
Barely a day after Mr Ojo’s encounter with his would-be employer, he was left in charge of the shop he was supposed to be managing, while his employer attended to some other business.
But, to the amazement of Mrs Amagbor, she received a call from a friend who told her of how her shop was left empty with only her 5-year-old son, a boy she left in Shadrack’s care at the shop.
It was on her arrival to see the empty shop that she realised that her Toyota Corolla saloon car which key she left in the shop was also missing.
Mrs Amagbor said she reported the case to the Nungua Police who contacted their various divisions through wireless calls and at about 12 midnight, she received a call from Aflao informing her of a young man attempting to cross the Ghana-Togo border with her car.
She then arranged with the Nungua Police where she was provided with a police escort to meet the men who made the arrest at Accra Shopping Mall where she identified the car and Shadrack Ojo, who was handed over to the Nungua police.
When Today contacted the Nungua District Police on the issue, they confirmed the story while adding that Shadrack would be arraigned before court on Wednesday.
