OPERATIVES of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, yesterday, raided the Abuja home of immediate past Comptroller-General of the Nigeria Customs Service, Abdullahi Inde Dikko, in search of cash and other suspected items. The former CGC is said to have presided over an organisation, which is believed to have generated huge revenues but also made the Federal Government to lose heavy revenues through import duty waivers for top politicians and their cronies.
The EFCC is said to be working on the allegation that the yearly revenue declared by the NCS was grossly lower than what was actually collected while some of its top officials were living far above their means pharmacieinde.fr. During his time, Dikko was always commended for the revenues the customs raised.
It was gathered that the suspicion of fund mismanagement and other forms of wrongdoings that had short-changed the nation, were responsible for the immediate sweep of the top echelon of the NSC by the President Muhammadu Buhari administration and the appointment of a no-nonsense military officer, Col Hameed Ali, retd, to clean up the mess at the top revenue-generating agency of the Federal Government.
Although no specific allegation has yet been levelled against Dikko, it was learned that the raid in his house was a prelude to moving against him by the anti-corruption agency. The EFCC, however, declined to speak up on the invasion of the house when Saturday Vanguard called its spokesman, Mr Wilson Uwajaren around 7pm, yesterday.
