The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) headquarters, Abuja has been thrown into mourning following the death of one of its escort bikers who died while performing a stunt.
The biker, identified as ASC I Dickson Dike, and the first outrider of the Corps, is said to have died after crashing an escort motorbike of the Commandant-General of the Corps, Ahmed Audi, in Abuja on Tuesday.
TheFact Daily gathers that the deceased was leading Audi’s convoy when he ran into a culvert and died on the spot.
According to a source from the Corps, the CG 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 source disclosed.
Spokesperson of the NSCDC, DCC Olusola Odumosu, described the incident as unfortunate, adding, “we hope never to experience such again as we mourn Dickson’s demise. May his gentle soul rest in perfect peace”.
