Alhaji Abdullahi Dikko, the former Comptroller-General of Customs, has returned N1,040,000,000 to the government over an alleged case of fraud during his tenure.
The general, who served the country from August 2009 to August 2015, had diverted the sum of N40billion from the coffers of the Nigerian Customs Service.
Dikko was initially arrested by the EFCC for interrogation, but was released on health grounds.
He later consented to making a gradual refund back to the government.
According to reports, Dikko has so far returned over N1billion, and then another N4million.
He is still under close scrutiny as more cash is still expected from him.
One of Dikko’s properties, a mansion valued at N2billion, had been seized by the anti-graft agency.
The former customs boss is expected to still return more funds as more properties are being traced to him.
