Buhari's minister accused of owing $3m property in US

22 July 2016, 13:22

Abuja - Interior minister Abdulrahman Dambazau, and his wife have been accused of owing choice properties worth billions in the United States of America and Abuja.

A report by Saharareporters shows that Dambazau purchased the Winchester property shortly after it was built in 2013.

The report quoted two real estate consultants as saying that the properties traced to Dambazau in the US alone have an estimated value of over $3 million.

"The minister’s real estate holdings include an impressive and expensive and huge seven-bedroom house he purchased in Winchester, Massachusetts, a few miles outside of Boston".

"Our investigation into Dambazau’s inexplicable real estate assets comes on the heels of public outrage that the minister’s name was removed from the list of serving, and retired military officers recommended for further investigation by a presidential panel that investigated arms and equipment procurement fraud in the Nigerian armed forces between 2007 and 2015".

Dambazau was previously accused of diverting military funds when he was chief of army staff (COAS) according to a report by News24.

According to the report, Dambazau was taking N1b monthly from salaries of the Nigerian military as COAS.

Dambazau is a retired Nigerian army Lieutenant General. He served as army chief between 2008 and 2010, succeeding Lieutenant General Luka Yusuf.

The current Chief of Army Staff General Tukur Buratai, was also accused of illegal diversion of military funds to purchase two properties in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
