Court Orders Ex-Customs Boss Arrest


The former comptroller General of the Nigeria Customs Service, Abdullahi Dikko, has been ordered for arrest by the Federal High Court in Abuja on Monday.

He was issued a bench warrant by Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu for his consistent failure to appear in court despite the corruption charges levied on him and two others by the Independent Corrupt Practices Commission (ICPC).

The lawyer's explanation on the defendant's absence in court was that he was ill and on admission in London.

Solomon Akuma(SAN), Dikko's lawyer, had earlier on agreed to produce him in court but later presented a medical report to justify his absence.
