Man finds £2million worth of gold in tank he bought on ebay (Photos)

A 55-year-old British tank restorer who bought a tank on eBay for £30,000 has found £2m worth of gold bars hidden in the diesel tank.

Nick Mead found the five solid gold bars weighing up to 12lbs each while restoring a Russian T54/69, where he also found a machine gun ammunition with his mechanic friend, Todd Chamberlain. The gold bars are believed to have been looted by Iraqi soldiers during the invasion of Kuwait in 1990.



Speaking to The Sun on the discovery, they said 
‘We didn’t know what to do. You can’t exactly take five gold bullion bars down to Cash Converters without questions being asked, so we called the police,’ 

The Northamptonshire police have taken the bars for analysis.

Heyyyy! If it were Nigerian men. The gold bars would have disappeared. They'll throw big partey, invite davido. Build houses all over Naija and then buy some overseas. It's not all on the public alone, just goes to show you how ridiculous our forces are in this country. Na police go ask?? mmmtchewww

These guys their head no correct I swear... See money wey dem wan miss.. Very crazy, you buy something find another thing inside no be your own be that? why not melt that gold once it becomes cold it turns to another shape with all the former inscriptions gone, or during melting, you pour them little by little out and they form smaller shapes and u sell them gradually for money even sell them on that same eBay and nothing will do u atall...melt them with very hot charcoal with air pumped to it through the common electric duster.. men see wastage... Na waoh now which police wan give u back that gold... Mtcheww.. That's why I trust naija..

The man self get intention otherwise how did he came about the thought that he will be questioned if he takes such huge amount of gold to cash converters? I bet he wouldn't turned in to police if he had a choice.
