Breaking news: John Dumelo caught with Stolen Government vehicle V8
Government agents have caught popular actor, John Dumelo, with two state vehicles, it has been reported.
The two cars are said to be Toyota Land Cruiser V8 vehicles, according to a report by the Daily Guide. YEN.com.gh understands that Dumelo was caught with one of the Land Cruisers at a spraying shop in Accra where he had allegedly taken it to be resprayed. The vehicle is said to be one of the 200 vehicles the presidency says are missing. The report said that an examination of the vehicle’s chasis number revealed that it had been purchased for the National Security Secretariat. It said when Dumelo was questioned as to how he got the car, he initially said that he bought it. But when it was put to him that the car belonged to national security, the actor changed his tune, saying that it was given to him by the former first lady, Lordina Mahama. The security operatives reportedly decided to crosscheck from the Lordina to ascertain the facts, but the actor pleaded with them to stop and just take the vehicle away.
The report said the second land cruiser in Dumelo’s possession has been painted ash and is currently being used by the actor’s girlfriend. Last year, YEN.com.gh reported that Dumelo had been spotted driving a Toyota Land Cruiser. It is not clear if it is the same vehicle that is with Dumelo’s girlfriend. Dumelo reportedly assured the security operatives that he would return the vehicle when his girlfriend returned from a trip. The actor was a vociferous supporter of former president John Mahama ahead of the December election. He travelled across the country campaigning for Mahama, who eventually lost to Nana Akufo-Addo of the New Patriotic Party (NPP). What do you make of this?
