The 21 vehicles unveiled by Magu at the commission’s headquarters in Abuja, comprised Pick-Up vans and buses.

Speaking at the event, an enthusiastic Magu informed that the vehicles were supplied to the commission by the government, adding that they would be utilised to aid the operations and logistics aspect of the war against corruption.

According to the anti-corruption Czar, “They are operational vehicles being supplied to us by the government to further aid our concerted efforts to rid Nigeria of economic and financial crimes,” he said.
