LAGOS, (CAJ News) – NIGERIA’S anti-corruption agency has recovered items worth millions of Naira at a warehouse allegedly belonging to the country’s former Comptroller General of Customs, Abdullahi Dikko Inde.
The discovery follows a raid by operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) at a property in Kaduna, northwest of the country.
Among items recovered include 42 new customized tricycles, a civilian bus, diesel truck, 515 brand new imported rugs, two metal bullet proof safe and documents reflecting transactions in different currencies within and outside the country.
The operation comes on the heels of similar discovery of 17 exotic vehicles in a property belonging to the former Customs head.
Inde was the Comptroller-General of Nigerian Customs Service from 2009 to August 2015.
He is among a number of officials from the past government of then President Goodluck Jonathan implicated in fraud.
Critics however have dismissed the crackdown as a ploy by the current administration of Muhammadu Buhari to frustrate the opposition.
