Five days after he donated two brand new Toyota SUVs to newly-wed Nigerian musician, Tuface Idibia and his wife, Akwa Ibom State governor, Godswill Akpabio, has acquired a new exotic bullet-proof sprinter luxury vans from US-based Texas Armoring Corporation (TAC).
Mr. Akpabio took delivery of the armoured Mercedes Benz vans recently after they were customized to his specifications by TAC in Texas.
The van will join a remarkable fleet of top-of-the-line bulletproof luxury Sport Utility Vehicles (SUV) Akpabio already has in his official convoy.
The company could not be reached for the actual cost of the van. Calls to its Texas office were unanswered. But those familiar with automobiles and their costs say Mr. Akpabio could have spent about a million dollar depending on the extent of customisation and the number of units.
