The first outrider of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Dickson Dike (ASC), has been killed in a ghastly accident in Abuja.
Until his sudden death, Dickson was the motorbike escort rider of the NSCDC Commandant-General, Ahmed Abubakar Audi.
According to reports, he was leading his boss’ convoy on Tuesday evening, September 27, when he ran into a culvert while driving at top speed and died on the spot.
A source who spoke to a popular news outlet said,
“The commandant-general had just closed from work on Tuesday evening and was heading home when the incident happened at an intersection close to his official residence in the Federal Capital Territory.
“Dickson was said to have attempted a stunt near a major intersection before Mr Audi’s residence at Asokoro Extension. After passing the intersection and attempting a U-turn to join the rest of the convoy, he missed the brakes and ran into a concrete culvert while on high speed.”
The spokesperson of NSCDC, Mr Shola Odumosu, confirming the incident, 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.”
