CITIZENS COMPASS —Operatives of the Rapid Response Squad (RRS) in Lagos State, have arrested a car wash attendant after he absconded with a 2012 Toyota Camry handed over to him for cleaning in Isheri area.

The suspect, Issa Muhammed, aged 22, was arrested on Sunday, September 9, 2023, in the Agege area of Lagos State where he parked the car to link up with a buyer.
