Breaking: Nigeria Customs ex-CG, Dikko is dead


Ex Comptroller-General of the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS), Abdullahi Dikko, is dead.

The Katsina State indigene died subsequent to fighting an unknown illness.

A year ago, a Federal High Court in Abuja parodied the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offenses Commission (ICPC) over Dikko’s trial.

The ICPC was indicting Dikko and two others for supposed N1.1billion corrupt practice.

Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu proclaimed that the ICPC was not genuine in handling of the matter.

Aside Dikko, other defendants are Garba Makarfi, ex-Assistant Comptroller-General of Customs (Finance, Administration and Technical Services) and Umar Hussaini, a lawyer and owner of Capital Law.

The trio, were among others, accused of asking the Managing Director of Cambial Limited, Yemi Obadeyi, to pay N1.1billion into the account of Capital Law Office.

The money is alleged to be a refundable “completion security deposit” for the purchase of 120 units of duplexes as residential accommodation for officers of the NCS.
