More details have emerged on 10 multimillion-pound properties owned by powerful Nigerian political elite in the United Kingdom, which were among those uncovered in a recent tour by ClampK, a group of anti-corruption campaigners.
A video clip of the tour by the anti-corruption campaigners, which included journalists, trended on the social media as it was reported by international media organisations, including the British Broadcasting Corporation, Al Jazeera and Agence France Presse.
The tour was aimed at exposing how the unexplained wealth of Nigeria’s political elite, among others, has been used to buy expensive properties in the UK.
Further investigations by Saturday PUNCH have however revealed details of 10 properties belonging to five politically-exposed Nigerians in the UK.
The properties were linked to two top lawmakers, one of whom is also a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress; a former military Head of State; a late military Head of State; and a retired senior military officer, who is also a serving government official.
