September 29, (THEWILL) – Dickson Dike, the First outrider (ASC I) to the Commandant-General of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Dr Abubakar Ahmed Audi, has died in a fatal crash.
Dike died at about 8pm on Tuesday night, on his way back home.
According to sources, the NSCDC officer, in an attempt to clear the way for the Commandant-general’s motorcade, slipped and lost control of his bike and ran into a culvert, where he died following the severe head injury he sustained.
THEWILL gathered that the fatal accident happened at an intersection close to the CG’s official residence, along Asokoro district extension, Abuja.
An eyewitness said the deceased officer attempted a stunt near a major intersection before the CG’s residence, just after attempting a U-turn to join the rest of the convoy, but missed the brakes and ran into a concrete culvert while on high speed.
Meanwhile, the Corps spokesman and director of Media and Public Relations, DCC Olusola, said the demise of the gallant, committed, jovial and very humble officer, has thrown the Civil Defence family into deep mourning.
He said, “The entire management and staff of Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) mourns a very gallant officer, ASC I Dickson Dike, the first outrider of the Corps. May his soul rest in perfect peace.”
