The home of Ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, has been raided by domestic workers and some relatives who reportedly made away with N300 million worth of jewelry.
The Bayelsa state police have since commenced investigations into the theft which occurred at the palatial home of Jonathan in Otuoke, Ogbia Local Government Area reports The Nation.
The suspects also allegedly made away with customized walking sticks.
Operations that led to the arrest of the suspects were coordinated by operatives of Puff Adder, a new police tactical strategy launched by the Inspector-General of Police (IGP).
It was learnt that one of the suspects and management staff of Mrs. Jonathan’s Aridolf Resort, Hotel and Spa illegally duplicated the keys to the rooms where the valuables were kept.
He reportedly gained entrance into the treasure room and gradually removed most of the valuables.
It was gathered that some persons uncovered the theft and secretly reported the matter to the police operatives, who effected the arrest and recovered some of the valuables.
A security source, who confirmed the development, said the theft was carried out by persons working as domestic employees to the former first family.
“It was not done by outsiders. The suspects have been working for the former first family. They decided to help themselves. One of them is a domestic servant, who is responsible in keeping the key to the room where the treasure was kept.
“The other ones share some relationship with former President Jonathan. I know that the police arrested some of them. I don’t know the monetary value of the stolen items . Only Patience Jonathan can say the value.
“They are already making useful confession to the police and some monies from the proceeds are being recovered”, the source, who spoke in confidence said.
