John Dumelo faces prosecution for allegedly stealing state vehicle
Kwame Baffoe, Supervisor of the Task Force on the Retrieval of State Assets has said Ghanaian actor, John Dumelo will be arrested, charged and prosecuted for stealing a state vehicle.
The 33-year-old sent one of the cars, black V8 Toyota Land Cruiser with registration number GE 8118-16 to a workshop in Abelempke, Accra for total rebranding when National Security Operatives pounced on it.
But the Supervisor of the Task Force said Dumelo will be arraigned before court for attempting to rebrand the state vehicle.
Mr Kwame Baffoe in an interview on Accra-based Joy FM said “the officers involved, we have the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) [and] the Bureau of National Investigations (BNI), they are building a docket on that and at the appropriate time, he will be arraigned before court. He should be charged for theft because this is a criminal offence.”
The vehicle is said to be one of the 200 vehicles the presidency said are missing.
According to reports, one of the vehicles is a Toyota Land Cruiser V8.
After the state officials cross-checked the chassis number (VIN number), the car was state-owned.
Dumelo confessed that the car was given to him by the former First Lady, Lordina Mahama.
