A CAR robbery incident has been foiled with the assistance of an advanced telematics solution by Citrans Telematics Solutions (Citracks), a division of C&I Leasing Plc.
The robbery, involving a Toyota Hilux vehicle belonging to C&I Leasing, had taken place in the early hours of Friday September 25th, 2020 around Kurudu, a suburb of Abuja, where it was parked.
With the tracking device that had previously been installed in the vehicle, the Citracks team was notified immediately the vehicle was stolen and the asset was demobilised.
In less than 12 hours, the robbery suspect was apprehended along the Akwanga-Keffi Road, in Nasarawa State, during a stop and search operation conducted by officers attached to the Akwanga Division of the State Police Command.
In a statement, Ruth Nwigwe, Head of Citracks, commended the well-coordinated efforts of the Citracks team as well as the security team at C&I Leasing, and highlighted that the swift response from the Nasarawa State Police Command was timely in recovering the stolen vehicle and capturing the perpetrator.
