Dikko returns N1.04bn cash to FG

Ex-custom boss: Dikko

A former Comptroller-General of the Nigeria Customs Service, Alhaji Abdullahi Dikko, has returned N1,040,000, 000 to the Federal Government.

Dikko, who served as the head of customs between August, 2009 and August, 2015, was earlier arrested for allegedly diverting about N40bn.

The funds were allegedly drawn from proceeds of the seven per cent cost of collection and one per cent comprehensive import supervision scheme.
A source revealed Dikko has returned over N1bn and he is still expected to return more (money).

The EFCC had, earlier in the year, seized an Abuja mansion belonging to the ex custom boss.
