Policemen Assigned To Guard Jonathan's Home In Abuja, Stole Properties
Former President Goodluck Jonathan's home in Abuja, has allegedly been burgled and looted by police officers assigned to guard the house.
DoroTV reports that three mobile police officers posted to secure the house conducted a systematic looting over a period of three months beginning from around March 2016, until they totally stripped the house of all movable items, which they sold piecemeal to dealers at the Panteka second-hand materials market in Tipper Garage, Gwarimpa.
The items alleged to have been stolen by the officers from the residence located at No. 89, Fourth Avenue in the Gwarimpa district of Abuja include sets of furniture, dozens of plasma television sets, refrigerators, air-conditioner units and box-loads of clothes such as designer suits imprinted with the former president’s name, male and female Ijaw traditional attires, lace materials and bowler hats.
The former president was said to have personally gone to inspect the property after which he reported the vandalization to the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris. The three police officers attached to the building have since been arrested.
