Alhaji Abdullahi Dikko, a former Comptroller-General of the Nigeria Customs Service(NCS), is said to have returned N1,040,000, 000 to the Federal Government. Dikko served as the head of customs between August 2009 and August 2015. He has been on the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission(EFCC) radar since the anti-graft agency established that about N40billion was diverted from the coffers of the NCS under his watch. The funds were allegedly drawn from proceeds of the seven per cent cost of collection and one per cent comprehensive import supervision scheme. He was then arrested by the EFCC in June 2016 and later released due to his poor health. The EFCC later seized a mansion{valued at N2billion} belonging to him located at 1 Audu Ogbeh Street, Jabi, Abuja. He is also believed to own properties in Dubai and in Katsina, his home state.
