The St. Solomon Hospital, situated on Adeniyi Jones Avenue, Ikeja, Lagos and owned by embattled ex-Air Staff Chief, Air Marshal Adesola Amosu (retd.) has been handed over to the Nigerian Air Force.
According to a report by Punch Newspaper, the hospital, which is valued at $2.15million, is one of the properties forfeited by the embattled ex-Chief of Air Staff over his involvement in the arms deal fraud.
Following the seizure of the hospital from Amosu, the EFCC had decided to hand it over to the force for proper management.
A source reportedly said: “The hospital has very expensive equipment including an MRI machine which is very rare. However, we could not manage the hospital so we handed it over to the air force pending the outcome of Amosu’s trial. It is assumed that the money used in buying the hospital was stolen from the air force.”
Arms Procurement Fraud
Now to be managed by the Nigerian Air Force medical unit, St. Solomon Hospital is said to have a state-of-the-art equipment including a Magnetic Resonance Imaging machine which costs well over $1m.
Other properties seized from Amosu included a house on Adeyemo Alakija Street, GRA Ikeja worth N250m; a duplex at House 11, Peace Court Estate, GRA Ikeja worth N110m; a N40m property located at NAF Harmony Estate, Asokoro base; a five-bedroomed house at Valley NAF Estate, Port Harcourt, worth N33m and a N95m house on Umaru Dikko Street, Jabi.
Also reportedly recovered from Amosu by the EFCC since the launch of the investigation int the misappropriation of funds is a total sum of N2.835billion.
Amosu alongside two other senior officers of the Nigerian Air Force are standing trial before a Federal High Court for allegedly stealing N22.8bn from the coffers of the Nigerian Air Force between 2014 and 2015.
