Ex-Customs Comptroller-General, Abdullahi Dikko, Is Dead
The immediate past Comptroller-General of the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS), Abdullahi Dikko, is dead.
It was gathered that he died after a protracted illness.
The former customs boss who led the NCS from 2009 to 2015 had been facing a probe by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) 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.
Dikko joined the Nigerian Customs Service in 1988 and retired in 2015.
He was aged 60.
