The official lead outrider of the convoy of the Commandant General (CG), Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, (NSCDC), Ahmed Audi, is dead.

The outrider, Assistant Superintendent of Corps 1, Dickson Dike, who was in charge of motorbikes that move ahead of the CG’s convoy, was killed following a fatal accident in Abuja.

In a communiqué, Audi said “Dickson’s death has thrown the NSCDC headquarters into mourning, as he was quite popular and well-loved by colleagues.

“Dickson’s death left many personnel, his admirers, colleagues, including top management staff and the CG in rude shock and disbelief that the officer is no more.”

Audi said the unfortunate incident took place on Tuesday, September 27, 2022, in Abuja at about 19.30 hours.

He described the late lead outrider as “a very intelligent, dedicated, hardworking, loyal and committed officer, who occupied a very special place in his heart.

The President of the Civil Defence Officer’s Wives Association, (CDOWA), Hajia Aishat Audi, who accompanied her husband, comforted the widow and assured her of the association’s support. 

She said: “I know how it feels to loose a loved one, talk more of a husband. I want to encourage you to be strong because of these beautiful children and God will see you through…”

“We will not be far from you. I will make sure we support you in our own little way.

Responding on behalf of the family, Pastor Olumuyi Adebayo of SafeHill Prophetic Assembly, Mararaba, thanked the CG and his team for coming personally to comfort the family.

He appreciated the prayers, words of encouragement, moral and financial support and love shown by the Corps to the family.
