EFCC Confirms Ex-Customs Boss Returned N1 billion To Government

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has confirmed media reports that a former Comptroller-General, Nigeria Customs Service (NCS), Abdullahi Dikko, returned N1 billion to the Federal Government.




The commission’s spokesperson, Wilson Uwujaren, gave the confirmation via SMS to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja on Saturday.

Mr. Dikko, who headed the NCS between August 2009 and August 2015, was arrested by the EFCC in June over alleged diversion of N40 billion from the agency’s coffers.

He was later released, reportedly due to his poor health and was expected to return more money.

Mr. Uwujaren confirmed the seizure of a property belonging to the former customs boss in the Jabi District of Abuja, saying it was under investigation.

Media reports had identified the property as a mansion worth N2 billion and located at 1 Audu Ogbe Street, Jabi, Abuja.

  4. @Starry Larry: bcos the government cannot spend all these monies until court cases are completed and the judges order official forfeiture of the mobey to the country.
    That is the tragedy of corruption.
    Some idiots steal ourcommon wealth, hire lawyers at outrageous fees from proceeds of the corruption, the lawyers use all tricks in the book to strestch cases for years to frustrate justice and we the people suffer, seeing our money but unable to spend it until cases are over.
    That is the origin of plea bargaining.
    Even after judgement, the crooks appeal all the way to the Supreme Court.
    Sad indeed

  15. Dikko and his thieving friends are clearly enemies of progress, enemies of the Nigerian state and its citizens. Undoubtedly, Dikko and his ilk need to be neutralised or at the very least, locked up in Kirikiri prisons for the rest of their lives. What is the rationale for being content that Dikko returned a mere 1bn naira from over 40bn naira loot from the public treasury? Nawa for black man development vision
