John Dumelo was caught with the vehicle at a spraying shop in Accra where he had allegedly taken it to be resprayed.According to reports,he initially said that the former first lady, Lordina Mahama, gave him the vehicle. Then he reportedly changed his tune, saying that he bought it himself.However, a look at the car's chasis number (VIN number) is said to have given him away.He reportedly handed over the car without any resistance.
Last year,the star actor was spotted cruising around with a Toyota Land Cruiser car.However,it is unclear if it is the same vehicle that was seized by government agents.
It should be recalled that John Dumelo was an ardent supporter of former president John Mahama ahead of the December election.Alongside Nigerian Dele Momodu and others,he travelled across the country campaigning for Mahama, who eventually lost to Nana Akufo-Addo of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).At a time he was at a loggerhead with star actress Yvonne Nelson because she was against Mahama's administration.
Below are photos of the car he was spotted cruising with last year.
