Police in Central Nigeria say the types of vehicles mostly stolen in cities are Toyota and Honda.

The locks and keys to these products are easily manipulated by criminals, Plateau State Police spokesman, Mr. Tyopev Terna said, Wednesday.

Additionally, the demand for these vehicles in the consumer market is high, Terna said in a press statement.

“This is not to say that other vehicles are not target of the thieves,” the Police Public Relations Officer said.

Citizens, according to the Deputy Superintendent of Police must secure their cars using pedal or steering locks, fuel cut system and tracking devices.

Owners of event centres, amusement parks and eateries among others are also advised to apply for Police guards during events, Terna said.
