Nigeria Customs: Court Orders Arrest Of Ex-comptroller General Dikko


The Federal High Court, Abuja, on Monday, ordered the arrest of Abdullahi Dikko, former Comptroller General (CG) of the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS).

The court wants Dikko to appear at the next sitting on March 16, 2020.

The order followed his continued failure to appear in court in an alleged corruption and bribery trial.

Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu turned down the lawyer’s explanation that the defendant was ill and on admission in London.

Dikko’s lawyer, Solomon Akuma, SAN, had presented a medical report before the court.

But the judge said the medical report bearing the address, N6 Ahmed Musa Crescent, Jabi, Abuja, contradicted Akuma’s claim that the defendant was on admission in London.

NAN reports that the ICPC in 2019 charged Dikko and two others with inducing the Managing Director of Cambial Limited, Yemi Obadeyi, to pay the sum of N1,100, 952,380.96 into the account of Capital Law Office.
