  • 42 brand new customized yellow-coloured tricycles
  • 16 brand new cargo motorcycles
  • 1 brand new white 32-seater Nissan civilian bus
  • 1 MAN Diesel Truck
  • 515 brand new imported rugs of different colours and sizes
  • Two metal bullet proof safe with the sum of N 1,565 ( one thousand five hundred sixty five thousand Naira only)
  • Documents of 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 Boss.

The anti-graft commission had last week Wednesday announced the recovery of 17 “exotic vehicles” from Mr. Dikko who retired as Customs boss in 2015.
