NSCDC officer dies while performing ‘motorcycle stunt’ 

The first outrider of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Dickson Dike, has died in Abuja.

Dike’s death was confirmed on Thursday in a statement by spokesperson of NSCDC, Olusola Odumosu.

Said to be a member of the team that works with Ahmed Audi, the NSCDC commandant-general (CG), Dike reportedly died on Tuesday evening while escorting the CG home.

The NSCDC officer was said to have lost control of his bike, and suffered severe head injuries in a crash which reportedly took place along the Asokoro district extension near the CG’s official residence.

According to LEADERSHIP, an eyewitness said the 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.

He was, however, said to have missed the brakes and he ran into a concrete culvert while on high speed.

In the statement on Thursday, the NSCDC mourned the outrider, and described him as a gallant officer.

“The entire management and staff of Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps mourns a very gallant officer, ASC I Dickson Dike, the first outrider of the corps. May his gentle soul rest in perfect peace,” the statement reads
