“I commend President Buhari-led administration for creating a vigorous awareness against corruption,” Mr Akanbi said.

Mr Akanbi’s demand was made at a public presentation of four books authored by a legal practitioner, Aminu Alilu, a Prosecutor and Head, Complex Case Group in the Federal Ministry of Justice.
