According to the source, “The house was built by Alhaji Muazu the former Gov of Bauchi State through a loan from GTB bank. He could not repay the loan so GTB took over the house and allocated the penthouse of the house to Muazu along with two flats. Esther lives in one of the flats while Rotimi Amaechi bought 2 of the flats 7a and 7b. He then gave 7a to his girlfriend Mo Abudu, the TV presenter. But the flat where the money was found belong to Rotimi Amaechi.”
