EX CUSTOMS BOSS DIKKO ARRESTED ON COURT ORDERS

Law

A former Comptroller-General of the Nigeria Customs Service, Abdullahi Dikko has been arrested on the orders of the Federal High Court in Abuja.

The judge, Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu noted that the order was necessary to ensure the former Customs boss appear in court to take his plea on the next adjourned date for his arraignment by the ICPC.

This followed an application brought by ICPC’s prosecution counsel, E. Shogunle when another scheduled arraignment could not hold due to the absence of Dikko in court.

She ordered the prosecution to arrest Dikko and produce him in court on March 16, which is the next adjourned date for arraignment but said the execution be suspended if the accused was actually ill and receiving treatment abroad.
