Former Transport Minister, Umaru Dikko Dies

Second Republic Minister for Transportation and prominent Nigerian politician, Alhaji Umaru Dikko has died. He was a member of the National Party of Nigeria (NPN) which was the ruling party then.
Dikko died on Tuesday in a London hospital. His demise has been confirmed by his son, Dr. Bello Dikko.
Many still remember Dikko as the man who was almost brought back to Nigeria in a crate to face prosecution in the 1980s. Years after the attempt to smuggle him in failed, he returned of his own volition.
He was 79 years old.
