He also stated that his car, a Toyota Camry, was recovered the same day after the robbers abandoned it somewhere in the city.

The armed robbers threatened to shoot me, they threw me out of my car. Immediately they left with my car, I flagged down a police vehicle, told them what happened and begged them to help me get my car back. The policemen said to me, ‘It’s EndSARS’. They laughed and drove away,” he said while giving testimony in the church.
