A late former governor of Oyo State, Abiola Ajimobi has been exposed to be the owner of a multi-million mansion in Rockville, Maryland, United State.
According to SaharaReporters, Ajimobi purchased the house for $1,347,200m (N522,713,600m) during his second term in office as governor of the state in 2016.
The residential building located at 10821 Symphony Park Drive, reportedly attracts an annual tax of $18,198 (N7,060,824m when calculated N388 per USD).
The purchase of the house in America is reportedly in gross violation of the code of conduct laws of Nigeria, which forbids serving public officials from operating bank accounts and purchasing property outside the country.
It was also gathered from sources at the Code of Conduct Bureau that the property was not listed among assets declared by the former Oyo governor until his tenure in office elapsed in 2019.
Also, checks with top real estate players in the US indicated that the Maryland property of Ajimobi was now worth at least $1.6m (N620,800,000m).
The revelation is coming days after Ajimobi died at the First Cardiology Hospital in Ikoyi, Lagos, as a result of Coronavirus complications.
