A reliable source within the EFCC told Punch that the suspect had been returning money to the government. The source added, “So far, Dikko has returned over N1bn. He returned N1bn and then N4m. He is still expected to return more money.”
It would be recalled that Dikko served as the head of customs between August, 2009 and August, 2015 and became the subject of an EFCC investigation last year when the commission established that about N40bn was diverted from the coffers of the NCS under his watch.
