Popular Ghanaian actor, John Dumelo has said he was unaware the black Toyota Land Cruiser vehicle that was retrieved from him by a taskforce empowered to retrieve stolen vehicles in March this year was a state vehicle.

“I bought the car from somebody and won’t know whether it is a stolen car or not. I was there and some people came and said it is a stolen car so asked them to take it away. I will never keep a government car because I was not a government official. What is a car, we dealt with it and after I bought a new car”, he disclosed on Joy Fm’s Metropolitan Mix.

National Security operatives earlier this year, allegedly caught the actor, with the vehicle belonging to the state at a spraying shop at Abelemkpe, Accra.

But news broke that one of the two V8 Toyota Land Cruisers classified as missing from the pool of state vehicles had been retrieved from John Dumelo at an auto mechanic’s shop, he allegedly took to Facebook, a social media platform, to rubbish the publication, claiming that he bought the vehicle impounded by the state.

He posted, “I have not granted any interview both private or public to which I mentioned the name of the first lady for buying me a V8,”

He continued, “I bought the vehicle myself; I never said it anywhere that Madam Lordina bought it for me. I have in my entire NDC life met her Excellency only once at a public event. Treat any publication that tries to link my purchase of a V8 to the former first lady as trash.”
