The Federal Executive Council (FEC) wednesday in Abuja resolved to replace Black Maria vehicles for the conveyance of prisoners with Green Maria.

Briefing journalists in the State House after the weekly FEC meeting, Interior Minister, Abdulraman Danbazzau, said the council approved his memorandum to henceforth purchase Green Maria as against Black Maria.

He said the decision was meant to reflect the fresh initiative not to see prisons as places of vengeance and punishment but rehabilitation centres.

Against this background, Dambazzau said FEC approved N1.5billion for the purchase of 116 Green Maria vehicles.
