US Government plans to sell Alamieyeseigha’s N91m house in Maryland

The United States government has put the $600,000 (N91m) house of a former governor of Bayelsa State, Chief Diepreye Alamieyeseigha, in Rockville, Maryland, up for sale.

This is sequel to the filing of a forfeiture order by the Kleptocracy Team of the US Department of Justice on the house in March and a separate one in April on $400,000 (N60m) in a Fidelity Brokerage Services LLC account in Massachusetts.

Both assets were described as proceeds of corruption acquired during his tenure from 1999 to 2005
