He disclosed that intelligence assessment was conducted on the claims made by Orubebe and it was discovered that there were some other properties allegedly traced to him that were never declared by the former Minister.

According to Madujemu, a record examination was later conducted by writing a letter to the Federal Capital Territory Department of Lands Administration, which responded stating that plot number 2057 Asokoro District, Abuja with a C of O issued on 10th April 2011 belong to Orubebe.
