imageSome editions back, your soar away Global News wrote a story on the former Comptroller General of the Nigerian Customs, Alhaji Dikko Inde. We wrote about his acquisition of a vast hectare of land for his mechanized farming business which he ventured into immediately after his tenure as CG Customs. For now, information reaching us is that Inde is probably now on the run from security agencies and the seeming dangerous hammer dangled by the Presidency on corrupt Nigerians, most especially elder statesmen who are involved in one dirty deals on the other.
