Government agents have caught popular actor, John Dumelo, with two state vehicles, it has been reported.
One of the vehicles is a Toyota Land Cruiser V8, according to a report by the Daily Guide.
Reports claims that Dumelo was caught with the Land Cruiser 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 Dumelo initially said that the former first lady, Lordina Mahama, gave him the vehicle. Then he reportedly changed his tune, saying that bought it himself.
However, a look at the car’s chasis number (VIN number) is said to have given him away. The actor reportedly handed over the car without any resistance.
Last year, it was reported that Dumelo had been spotted driving a Toyota Land Cruiser. It is not clear if it is the same vehicle that has reportedly been seized.
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).
