A car owner has advised Nigerians to start parking indoors or to beef up the security around their parking lots after his Toyota Highlander was stripped off its part during an overnight raid in Lagos.
The incident reportedly happened while the car owner slept just meters away from where the Toyota Highlander SUV was parked in an unnamed area in Lagos.
Parts stolen from the car includes side mirrors, both front and rear lights, battery and plugs from the bonnet, brain box, as well as both “Door Control Modules”.
The owner said he was stunned in the morning after discovering that his first-generation Highlander had been methodically stripped bare for parts.
