Four policemen have been sacked over the theft of household appliances as well as designer clothing from Mr Jonathan’s house.
The officers are alleged to have sold the items to traders at Pankera second-hand market in Abuja.
Speaking yesterday, Mr Jonathan’s spokesman explained the extent of the burglary:
The house was totally stripped bare by 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.”
A statement from the Police says the dismissals took place following an “orderly room proceeding”, and were in keeping with Inspector-General Ibrahim Idris’ mission to “rid the Nigeria Police Force of criminal elements that are out to disparage the good image of the force”.
