Gobe!! Man leaves his SUV at Car wash, returns to find it bashed (Pics)

As per the story, a man dropped his SUV at a car wash in Abuja for it be washed and left. Furthermore, when he returned, the SUV had been basically bashed. As indicated by what happened, when the young men at the car wash heard that some FCT ecological taskforce were going to the range, one of the young men jumped into the SUV and attempted to drive the auto away so it doesn't get seized by taskforce authorities. Be that as it may, as opposed to driving the auto, the inexperienced driver lost control of the SUV and crushed it into a wall. Above is the way the SUV owner met his auto when he came back to pick it up. I can't imagine how he would have felt. C AR2
