New headquarters for Voice of Nigeria
Anti-corruption drive pays dividend for Nigeria’s international broadcaster
Nigeria’s anti-corruption campaign has recovered assets worth tens of millions of dollars, with many more millions still to be traced. One beneficiary of the seizing of assets is the country’s international radio broadcaster, Voice of Nigeria. It has moved into a building in Nigeria’s federal capital, Abuja, that was owned by disgraced former defence chief, Alex Badeh, from whom a further four buildings and one million dollars in cash were seized.
The office building – which allegedly had a nightclub fitted out in its basement – was handed to Voice of Nigeria in June 2019 and many of the broadcaster’s staff moved to the new headquarters in November.
The new headquarters building is located at Plot 1386, Oda Crescent, Cadastral Zone A07, Wuse II, in Abuja.
