A shocking report has revealed that the immediate past comptroller of Nigeria Customs Service, has been stricken with prostrate cancer and has reportedly confessed to owning multi-million dollar properties in Dubai.
According to a revealing tweet by SaharaReporters, the embattled former Comptroller-General of Nigerian Customs Service, Abdullahi Diko Inde, has been stricken with terminal prostrate cancer and has already confessed to owning properties worth $50million in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
The immediate past Customs CG voluntarily retired from service shortly after President Muhammadu Buhari was sworn into office. This was despite the fact that Dikko’s second-term had begun at that time.
It was reported that when Dikko was about to end his tenure, there were allegations of corruption against him by groups, which said he did not manage the Customs well.
One of the groups, the Nigerian Customs Transparency Initiative, had sent a petition to the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission and the EFCC.
It had accused Dikko of abusing his office, adding that some containers disappeared from some port terminals without trace during his tenure.
The NCTI also claimed that the conditions, on which the Customs, under Dikko’s supervision, spent N3.5bn to upgrade the service’s Internet facilities, were not transparent and must be investigated.
