A clerk of a senate committee, who spoke on the condition of anonymity with our correspondent on Thursday, explained that it was normal for the principal officers to drop the fleet of vehicles in their possession since their tenure had ended with the valedictory session on Thursday.

He said, ”The vehicles are the property of the National Assembly and the Clerk of the National Assembly, being the chief Accounting Officer, will account for all the vehicles. Hence, the man waited after the session to take possession of the vehicles.”
