The former Nigerian President, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan’s house in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja, has been reportedly burgled.
According to reports, it was alleged that the house was not burgled by thieves but by police officers assigned to guard the house.
The Nigeria Police have thus arrested three of its officers for stealing items, over a period of three months beginning from around March 2016, from the residence located at No. 89, Fourth Avenue in the Gwarimpa district of Abuja.
The items, valued at several millions of naira includes 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.
They sold the items to dealers at the Panteka second-hand materials market in Tipper Garage, Gwarimpa.
According to reports, by the time family members of the former President were made aware of the looting early this month, the house had been stripped bare.
