Former President of Nigeria, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan has in a freshly releases statement chronicled his loss.
The statement comes after the former president accused men of the Nigerian Police of stealing from his house.
Recall that the Abuja Command of the Police had yesterday released a statement admitting that some of its operatives indeed stole from the former president’s home.
Goodluck Jonathan however in the statement revealed that things that were stolen from his home by the policemen.
Chronicling his loss from his home in Gwarinpa, Abuja, the former president noted that the items lost to the group of men including six policemen include a set of furniture, beds, electronics, toiletries, gas cooker, electrical fittings, internal doors and frames amongst other items.
In the statement released through his media aide, Mr. Ikechukwu Eze, the policemen and other suspects were reported to have totally stripped bare the four-bedroom duplex which was bought from CITEC estate developers in 2004.
Gooluck Jonathan in the statement said: “Following series of inquiries from journalists and other concerned Nigerians on the extent of the reported vandalism and theft in the house of former President Goodluck Jonathan located in Gwarinpa Abuja, we therefore would like to make the following clarifications:
“The theft was discovered last month upon which a report was duly lodged with the relevant police authorities. The police immediately commenced investigations which led to the arrest and detention of some suspects, six of whom were policemen, even as investigations continue.”
He added: “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, three 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.
“We thank all Nigerians for their show of concern and wish to convey the former President’s goodwill to all Nigerians.”
