Abuja - A total of 61 houses as well as 45 plots of land were seized by the Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) in an ongoing investigation on Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC).

Chairman of the commission, Ekpo Nta, said that the 61 houses were seized from a single official, Vanguard reports.
