SHOCKING: WCs, kitchen cabinets, ‘everything’ stolen from Jonathan’s house – Family source

Former President, Goodluck Jonathan

Fresh facts have emerged on the comprehensive looting of an Abuja house of former President Goodluck Jonathan allegedly by the police officers on guard duty at the house.

PREMIUM TIMES had exclusively reported the incident on Monday.

Police authorities in the Federal Capital Territory later confirmed that three officers were being questioned over the matter.

Speaking after this newspaper broke the story on Monday, a member of the former president’s family exclusively told PREMIUM TIMES that the scale of the looting of the house at No 89, Fourth Avenue, Gwarimpa was staggering and that more items were removed than had been reported.

“All the internal doors, WCs (water cistern toilet equipment), kitchen cabinets, wardrobes, electric fittings, ACs (air-conditioner units) and television sets were removed,’’ said the source who spoke about the shock of the former president by the incident.

“The house has been looted, so there is nothing we can do. It is the police security men in the house that looted it and removed everything.”

PREMIUM TIMES confirmed that even the window frames of the house were not spared.

The Federal Capital Police Command, in a statement on Monday, said it had commenced investigation into the case.

It said that preliminary investigation indicated that some items were “found to be missing in the house.”

“The policemen who are supposed to be on guard duty at the house have been detained for questioning. Investigation to find out what actually happened is currently in progress,” the statement by the command’s spokesperson, Anjuguri Manzah, said.

    Goodluck always gives Mallams chances to betray him.

    Jagajaga was INEC chairman with a Muslims police IGP the stole your mandate and gave it to Buhari and again you allowed Hausa police men to be stationed in your house and again they went with everything too bad GEJ.

    Last year July I was in Nigeria and demanded for two escorts to enable me visit some worst area but behold I was given two Northerner origin police men I disagreed quickly and told the Commander what I want immediately I got them but GEJ will wait until the hit him badly.

    While prosecuting the police officers who looted Jonathan’s Abuja home. Could we ask how he came about the money to acquire the house from a the salary of a college lecturer in 1999 to 2015. How many other houses did he acquire since 1999.
    Why should a public thief complain that some of what he stole from the public has been stolen from him and no one is holding him to account, while prosecuting the policemen turn buglers.

      Maybe you should ask OBJ how he translated himself from being a pauper with N20,000.00 when he got out of prison in 1999 to being owner of Transcorp and Arik Airlines as well as the owner of the biggest farm (Otta Farm) in Africa, at least these are the ones we know. Jonathan, a college lecturer from 1999-2015? May be your brain is leaking. You need to visit a psychiatrist if you don’t know he was deputy gov., gov, VP and president from 1999-2015. Nuckle heads like you have no space in this forum

        That obasanjo gave Nigeria mobile telephones is the issue here.
        He paid off our $40billion debt and left $45billins in foreign reserves and $20 billions in excess crude accounts when oil prices were under $45pb. He added value to nigeria.
