The Senator representing Delta North District in the National Assembly, Peter Nwaoboshi, has claimed that the properties sealed by the Special Presidential Investigation Panel (SPIP) did not belong to him.
He, however, admitted that the frozen accounts were his.
Nwaoboshi challenged the SPIP Chairman, Okoi Obono-Obla, to disclose to Nigerians the funds they found in his accounts so that they could decide if they were too big for a senator to own.
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) lawmaker said this in an interview with Channels TV Monday in Abuja.
He said, “None of the properties sealed or which they have a forfeiture order is my properties. I have said that before and I am saying it again that they are not my properties.
“I don’t own a property in Warri, I don’t own a property in Lagos. I don’t own a property in Maitama, Abuja and all these accounts.
“I challenge SPIP to publish what is in all these accounts for Nigerians to see how much I own and whether the money in these accounts is too big for a senator,” he said.
Nwaoboshi’s disclosure is against the backdrop of the recent clampdown by the anti-graft agency, sealing houses, filling stations, residential buildings and other properties it said had been traced to him
Obono-Obla said the properties were located in Warri, Asaba, Lagos, and Abuja.
