EFCC Storms Ex-Customs Chief Dikko Home Over Alleged N42b Fraud

Former Customs chief Abdullahi Inde Dikko is being held by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC). He was yesterday questioned over an alleged N42billion fraud.

Besides, the EFCC has traced how about N2.6billion was withdrawn from Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) coffers and remitted into the accounts of some companies floated by a former Assistant Comptroller General who served under Dikko.

Dikko was yesterday grilled on the sources of funds with which he allegedly acquired a N2 billion mansion at 1, Audu Ogbe Street, Jabi, Abuja.


The anti-graft agency had been on Dikko’s trail since January 8 when its operatives stormed his home.
But Dikko was said to have travelled out of the country. The EFCC launched a discreet manhunt for him, seeking help from some agencies, including the INTERPOL.

Dikko yesterday turned himself in to the EFCC.

He arrived at the EFCC’s Abuja headquarters at about 10am. His interrogation lasted about eight hours.
According to reports, he his still being detained by the commission for the continuation of his interrogation today.
