Today Newspaper has gathered that CEPS officers at the CEPS Check point at the Dabala Junction have stolen a blue Suzuki Balino vehicle with Registration No. TG 4042 AI, with Chassis No. GSAEGC31W00103152, belonging to the West Africa Director of the World United Evangelical Ministries Alliance, Archbishop Dr. Stephen Kwabla Gbeve, and secretly sold it to a BNI officer at the Adidiome District of the Volta Region.
The said vehicle was mysteriously missing at the CEPS Check point at the Dabala Junction where it was arrested for an expired Entry Undertaking Letter on the 24th of October, 2015.
However, in a letter written to the Central Commissioner of Customs Exercise And Preventive Service, Aflao in the Volta Region, and copied to CEPS Check Point -Dabala Junction, CEPS Commissioner- Aflao and CEPS Headoffice- Accra, Archbishop Dr. Stephen Kwabla Gbeve indicated that, his car was missing while he was away taking steps to renew his entry undertaking letter for the said vehicle.
He stated that, he begun a search for his car until on October 7, 2016, came across it at a fitting shop at Sogakorpe at 11:45 in the morning, with a different Registration number, bearing Reg. No. GE115-16.
“According to the fitters, the car was brought by one Adidome District BNI officer, with Reg. No. GE115-16. I then forwarded and reported the case to the Sogakorpe District Police Station,” he indicated.
Interestingly, Archbishop Dr. Stephen Kwabla Gbeve was before the discovery of the missing car, informed by the Customs Officers at the Dabala Junction Check Point that, the car was sent to the Customs Exercise and Preventive Head office in Accra.
His checks at the B Customs Exercise and Preventive Head office in Accra revealed no trace of his missing car. “But when I proceed to the Head office, the car was not reported or found,” he stated.
In view of the mysterious way the car got missing and the circumstances surrounding the disappearance of the car, Archbishop Dr. Stephen Kwabla Gbeve in his letter requested to know whether a car under an expired entry undertaking letter can be washed away without the notice of the owner.
“On which duration, can a car under an expired entry undertaking letter, can be washed away by the CEPS department…. If a car under an expired undertaking letter, can be arrested and washed away without taking documents from the car owner and whether a car can be washed away, from any CEPS office or check point without a public notice.”
According to Dr. Stephen Kwabla Gbeve , answers to the above questions would disabuse his mind of the bad perception he and other people have in CEPS.
He therefore asked for a speedy response to his letter and a quick investigation into the disappearance of his vehicle.
