The Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC), is to arraign some government officials from whom dozens of stolen government vehicles were recovered.
The anti-graft agency said that this would serve as a deterrent to civil servants who misuse or steal government property.
The ICPC announced the recovery of the vehicles at a news conference in Abuja where the agency stated that the over 40 vehicles were recovered from the Water Resource Ministry.
The vehicles included: 14 Hilux pickup trucks, 14 luxury branded sports utility vehicles, 4 luxury branded saloon cars, and eight new edition Toyota saloon cars.
The Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Water Resources, Rabi Jimeta, revealed that those responsible for the theft were from a particular cadre of the civil service.
The agency then used the opportunity to task Nigerians and civil servants on the need to be vigilant and guide against misuse and theft of government property by public officers in the country.
