Jonathan not 36 Plasma television sets stolen but six


Contrary to media reports that 36 plasma television sets and 25 refrigerator were stolen from the house of ex-president Goodluck Jonathan located in Gwarinpa outfits, he has clarified that only six  television sets, three refrigerators and one gas cooker were stolen by the thieves.

According to a statement by Jonathan Media Adviser, Ikechukwu Eze. “Being that the house is a modest four-bedroom duplex, it couldn’t have been fitted with “36 Plasma television sets and about 25 refrigerators” as falsely reported by some media outfits.

“However, contrary to exaggerated reports in some media, only six television sets, three refrigerators and one gas cooker were stolen.
“We thank all Nigerians for their show of concern and wish to convey the former president’s goodwill to all Nigerians.”

He said the clarification became necessary following series of enquiries from journalists and other concerned Nigerians on the extent of the reported vandalisation and theft in his house located in Gwarinpa Abuja.

He said the theft was discovered last month upon which a report was duly lodged with the relevant police authorities.

According to him, 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 said 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.
