The Crate Escape

In London in 1984, a joint Nigerian-Israeli team attempted to kidnap and repatriate the exiled former Nigerian minister Umaru Dikko.

Dikko, who'd fled Nigeria after a military coup, was accused of stealing $1 billion of government money.

We hear from Charles David Morrow, the young British customs officer who foiled the kidnap plot.
