Nigeria's Jonathan Allegedly Buys £15million House in Surrey, UK


Former President Goodluck Jonathan has allegedly bought a property in the United Kingdom estimated to be worth about £15million.

According to UK tabloid, The Sun, reports in the UK indicate that the immediate past Nigerian president purchased a 12,000 square foot house in the “ultra-expensive and well protected St George’s Hill estate in Weybridge, Surrey.”

The paper put the market price for such houses in the area as being between £10-£15million (about N4.3bn), a staggering figure that may well surpass the cumulative earnings of the former president while in office.

Jonathan has been many times accused of leading a most profligate administration. A large number of top officials who served under his government are presently being probed by anti-graft agency, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

A number of former ministers and aides who served with the Jonathan administration were mentioned as being among those who returned looted funds to the Nigerian government between May 29, 2015 when Jonathan left office and May 25, 2016.

No reactions have been issued yet by the former president or his camp, to the story published by The Sun.
