Jonathan speaks on Abuja house burglary
Former President Goodluck Jonathan has made clarifications on the burglary of his property by police guards in Gwarimpa area of Abuja.
A statement by his spokesman, Emeka Eze said the theft was discovered last month upon which a report was duly lodged with the relevant police authorities.
The statement said “The police immediately commenced investigations which led to the arrest and detention of some suspects, six of whom were policemen, even as investigations continue.
“The house, which the former President bought from CITEC estate developers in 2004, was totally stripped bare by the thieves, who stole every movable item in the house including furniture sets, beds, electronics, toilet and electrical fittings, as well as all internal doors and frames.
“However, contrary to exaggerated reports in some media, only six television sets, 3 refrigerators and one gas cooker were stolen. Being that the house is a modest 4-bedroom duplex, it couldn’t have been fitted with “36 Plasma television sets and about 25 refrigerators” as falsely reported by some media outfits.”
