Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu of the Federal High Court, Abuja has ordered the arrest of former Comptroller General of the Nigeria Customs Service, Abdullahi Dikko.

Justice Ojukwu issued the bench warrant on Monday due to Dikko’s continued failure to appear in court in respect of corruption charges instituted against him and two others by the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission (ICPC).

On resumption of trial on Monday, Dikko’s lawyer, Solomon Akuma (SAN), who had previously undertaken to produce him in court, presented a medical report, in a bid to explain his absence.

But the judge discountenanced Dikko’s lawyer’s explanation that the defendant was ill and on admission in London.
