The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has handed over some military equipment and accoutrements to the Nigerian Military High Command.
The items were handed over to the military on Monday, 15 August, 2022, by a representative of the Commission’s Chief, Abdulrasheed Bawa, in the person of Assistant Commander of the EFCC, ACE II Michael Wetkas, at a brief ceremony at the Commission’s Zonal Command in Wuse 2, Abuja.
TheFact Daily reports that the items were recovered from a contractor who supplies military equipment, and were voluntarily handed over to the Commission in the course of an investigation.
Wetkas, who commended the longstanding collaborative relationship between the Commission and the Nigerian Military, said, it was important to hand over the equipment directly to the military to prevent them getting into the wrong hands.
Receiving the items on behalf of the Commander, Defence Headquarters Garrison, Col. AT Bitiyong, expressed appreciation to the EFCC for the mutual relationship between the military and the Commission. He assured that all the equipment would be delivered to the appropriate quarters.
The items handed over include 7 ballistic jackets with plates, 1 ballistic jacket without plate, 3 flotation jackets, 5 pieces of plates and 6 pieces of helmets. Others are 9 pieces of camouflage T-shirts and 30 sacks containing web equipment.
The ceremony was witnessed by the Abuja Zonal Commander, ACE II Adeniyi Adebayo, Head Special Investigation, ACE II Goji Mohammed, CSE Junaid M. Sa’id and the Commission’s Exhibit Keeper, CSE Salawu Abdulrazaq.
