National Security Operatives have caught popular movie actor John Dumelo with a vehicle belonging to the state and retrieved it from a spraying shop.
Dumelo was allegedly attempting to conceal the identity of the black Land Cruiser with registration GE 8118-16 when the operatives pounced on it at a garage at Abelemkpe in Accra where it has purportedly being sent for spraying.
The vehicle, with chassis number JTMHVOJ2F4159829, 2015 model with full option, has been parked at the Office of the President Annex for almost one month.
When the operatives invited him to the garage, he reportedly panicked and shook like rain-beaten chick, before surrendering the expensive vehicle without any protest.
The operatives, upon a tip-off, swooped on the garage a couple of weeks ago and got hold of the auto mechanic who told them that the vehicle belonged to John Dumelo.
He was telephoned to come to the garage and upon arrival, he’s reported to have first said that he bought the V8 from a car dealer, Svani Company Limited, and claimed he was yet to complete the payment.
The operatives then keyed in the chassis number into a centralized computer system but the results showed that the vehicle was registered in the name of the National Security Secretariat which is a property of the Government of Ghana.
Sensing he was getting into trouble, he’s reported to have quickly changed the story, claiming that it was former first Lady Lordina Mahama Mahama who had given the V8 to him.
