Former Customs Boss, Dikko Is Dead

Former Comptroller-General of the Nigeria Customs Service, Abdullahi Dikko is dead.

Reports say Dikko died after a prolonged illness. He was customs boss between 2009 to 2015.

He was born on the 11th of May 1960

An indigene of Katsina, Dikko had been facing a probe by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission as well as the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission.

His house said to be worth N1.1bn as well as cars worth hundreds of millions of naira were seized by the EFCC under the leadership of erstwhile Chairman, Ibrahim Magu.

However, his case could not proceed due to his failing health.

In December 2020, the ICPC and its Chairman, Prof Bolaji Owasanoye, were restrained from arresting and prosecuting Dikko.
