Update: The Transaction Between Mr Jay Autos & Bobrisky

Published

on

In light of all that has transpired between Mr. Idris Okunleye A.K.A Bobrisky and Jay Autos LLC, it has become imperative that we release this statement to clarify issues:

Background:

On March 27, 2019, Mr Idris contracted us to purchase and deliver to him, a Mercedez Benz CLA 250 from the United States of America. The method of acquisition and transfer of the car used for this transaction were as follows:

a. Mr Idris would make an initial deposit to signify substantial interest, and we would purchase the car and ship it to Nigeria;

b. When the car arrives at the ports, we would inform Mr Idris of this, and he would make a final payment before the car is delivered to him at a place of his choosing. This is our practice, and we have purchased and delivered several cars to numerous customers in this fashion.

Present Transaction:

On the 27 June, 2019, Mr Idris contacted us and indicated that he would like to purchase a Range Rover Velar R-Dynamic S, and he would like us to purchase and deliver same to him like we had done in the past with his Mercedez Benz CLA 250 (2015 model). Both parties agreed to the terms.
Issues Arising: Two weeks before the car arrived, we informed Mr Idris of this fact and reminded him of the balance due to us. The car arrived at the ports on the 19th of August, 2019 and we spoke to Mr Idris about our payment and delivery.

Mr Idris was unable to pay the final amount when the car arrived as agreed, but instead he offered to pay a part of the balance and requested that we extend the time within which he would make the final payment.

Mr Idris and his friends on his behalf pleaded that we extend the deadline to the 2nd of September, 2019 to enable him make final payment. At this point, Mr Idris had broken a two way payment, into three. Mr Idris further
requested that we make the car available at the venue of his birthday.

In light of the plea and request, and in order to protect the company and its asset, we entered into another agreement with Mr Idris that included the following terms:

a. That the car will be delivered to a venue of Mr Idris’ choosing but until final payment is made, legal ownership of the car as well as the original documentation of the car will reside with us;

b. That if Mr Idris fails again to pay the final balance on or before the 2nd of September, 2019 that we reserve the right to reposes the car and refund him. Mr Idris informed us that his birthday was on Saturday, the 31st of August 2019, and he wanted the car delivered to the venue.

On trust, and by our subsequent agreement, the car was delivered to Mr Idris at a place of his choosing – Pearl Event Garden, Lekki, Lagos (venue for his birthday), on the 30th of August, 2019, despite the fact that he had not made final payment.

Unfortunately, on the 31st of August, 2019 members of the Nigeria Police Force sealed the venue of the birthday with the car inside it. The car was left unprotected and with no supervision for over 24 hours.

On 1st September 2019, we discussed the events with Mr Idris and he gave us the key to the car and asked us to retrieve it from the venue as it was unsafe for him to do so at the time.

In order to retrieve the car, an associate of the company wrote a statement stating that the car belonged to the company and not Mr Idris. The car was released to us on trust by the police on the condition that the associate was to return to the police station with documentation to prove that the car belonged to the company and not Mr Idris.

We informed Mr Idris of this issue, and the need to secure the car at our office; but he was adamant and insisted we delivered the car to him, for he had told people and fans of his that he was getting a new car and he needed to show it. We further informed him, that the car will be delivered to him once the issue with the police was settled so they do not impound the car on the mistaken belief that ownership of the car had passed to him.

In the alternative, we also informed him that we would be willing to immediately deliver the car to him if he would make the final payment and complete the documentation on the car to ensure we had no more interest in the car.

Mr Idris refused to see reasons and instead threatened to publish unprintable names about the company and the CEO on social media. He further threatened that if we do not reproduce the car to him by the 1st of September, 2019, that he will cancel the contract and ask for a refund.

Our Position:

We have witnessed with dismay and shock as Mr Idris has tarnished our image on social media over what should have ordinarily been a seamless transaction. Mr Idris has concocted tales, including spreading falsehood on this deal and unwarrantedly inflating the price of the car and how much he paid in deposits.

We will like to reiterate that it was in the best interest of the company and Mr Idris to secure the car as we did. More so, as the ownership of the car resided in the company as per the agreement, the costs of any damage to the car would have been borne by the company.

Notwithstanding the fact that the deadline for final payment has elapsed, we are willing to extend the deadline to the 10th of September, 2019, for Mr Idris to make final payment if he still wishes.

In the event that Mr Idris fails or is unable to make this deadline, we will put up the car for sale and when the sale has been finalised, refund the deposits made by Mr Idris.

While we empathize with Mr Idris on the disruption of his birthday activities by members of the Nigeria Police Force, we wish to state categorically and in strong terms that further attempts to cause loss of business to us by the peddling of false hood against us in the media will not be tolerated and should this persist, we will have no choice than to seek
legal redress.
