YEN has gathered from a new interview that was granted by a police officer who is involved in the investigation that the actor indeed tried to make alterations to the mode and colour of a brand new Toyota V8 Land Cruiser.
Speaking to Kwame Nkrumah Tikese on the Okay FM morning show, Abubro Kosua, Deputy Commander for Eagle Eye SWAT Team who led the operation to retrieve the vehicle claimed that John Dumelo tried to bribe his way through.
“John Dumelo told me the car belongs to the state but I should mention our offer so he sorts me and the team out, because we are all young men just like him. I said ‘no way’ because we are not government auctioneers and that we are not ready for such an arrangement to mention an offer and let him keep a state car,” he said.
The deputy commander also narrated the state of the car when they found it in a garage in a suburb of Accra.
“We retrieved the car from a spraying shop at Abelemkpe. When we got to the shop, we realised John Dumelo had asked the workers at the shop to dismantle parts of the car and he had bought some new parts so they should replace it to make the car look different. He bought those new parts from Dubai.
“This is strange because the car is a new car and actually a 2016 model so why buy new parts to replace equally new parts that have absolutely no fault.”
John Dumelo has however stated that he never got the car from the former first lady, Lordina Mahama, as alleged by the media but rather from a car dealer at Spintex where he had made part payment.
