Oil and Gas big boy, Wale Tinubu has proven once again that he’s extremely rich. Wale, who was recently named by Forbes magazine the king of African Oil recently coughed out billions of naira to acquire a property belonging to a fellow Nigerian billionaire.
According to an unconfirmed report, a said property on 19 Avenue Road in London, which formerly belonged to Otunba Adekunle Ojora, the former chairman of AGIP PLC is now in the possession of Wale.
In the said location, mansion we learnt is sold between £300million pounds sterling to £50 million pounds sterling and the location is resident by nobles such as Sir Richard Brandon, founder of the Virgin Group and Mr John Major, former British Prime Minister.
Sources informed that Wale acquired the said property when Wale’s Oando PLC took over the Nigerian operations of AGIP and the mansion on St. Jameswood was part of the prime assets that went with the sale and so naturally, Otunba Adekunle Ojora had to move.
Nobody has been able to say if there was any rancour between the aging corporate tycoon and Wale Tinubu but a source was quick to chirp in, ‘ Wale Tinubu is a respectful and well brought up boy who is also friends with Otunba’s children, so am sure there is no personal beef here. Wale knows that age or not, Otunba Adekunle Ojora is an institution in Nigeria.
Be that as it may, Wale we learnt has moved into No. 19 Avenue Road. And as it is now, we are yet to ascertain if he intends to do renovations on the mansions, but be assured that if and when he so decides, we shall keep you posted.
