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
A source told The Punch that, “So far, Dikko has returned over N1bn.
He returned N1bn and then N4m. He is still expected to return more
“The EFCC Act Section 71 (b) gives us the power to commence
investigations into the property of any person if it appears to the EFCC
that the person’s lifestyle and extent of properties are not justified
Section 28 says concerning those arrested under the Act, the
commission will immediately trace and attach all the assets and seizures
of such a person which have been acquired.
“Section 29 permits the assets of a person arrested under Section 28 to be seized by the state.
“Dikko was a customs officer and served for about 30 years. He has to
explain where he got the money to buy a mansion of N2bn”, he added.
The EFCC had, earlier in the year, seized a mansion belonging to Dikko located at 1 Audu Ogbeh Street, Jabi, Abuja.
