Christian Onyenora, the driver of a blue Honda Accord 2003 from which Federal Road Safety Corps recovered huge sums of money on Saturday, is presently on the run, police sources have said.
Onyenora was involved in an accident in the Badagry area of Lagos on Saturday. The FRSC, RS 2.11, Badagry Unit Command, on getting to the accident scene, recovered the sum of N4.09m.
PUNCH Metro learnt that Onyenora, who was the sole occupant of the vehicle, was taken to the Badagry Police Division by FRSC officials where the money recovered was handed over to the Divisional Crime Officer, identified simply as Mr. Oni, a superintendent of police.
PUNCH Metro learnt that Onyenora, who complained of body pains as a result of the accident, was taken to Badagry General Hospital for check-up.
According to reliable sources, the police had yet to begin investigations on the source of the money found in the car.
A senior policeman, who spoke to our correspondent on the condition of anonymity, said the driver was to be investigated for robbery.
The police were however shocked on Monday when on getting to the hospital to interrogate Onyenora, he was said to have fled.
Our source said, “When the driver was brought to the division, he was conscious but later started complaining that he was not feeling too well. So, we took him to the general hospital so that he could be checked in case he had internal bleeding.
“However, on Monday, when we got to the hospital, the medical staff told us that he had left the hospital. We were already suspecting him of robbery but we wanted to make sure he was in good health.
“He was probably pretending to be ill and had actually planned to escape all along. We have his picture and we have intensified the search.”
