The other items included building materials, machinery and tools.
Oshana regional crime investigations coordinator, Deputy Commissioner Hilja Haipumbu, said: “The items we found in this house were in a large quantity and that is how we became suspicious.
“We understand that the homeowner was a businessman, but he was not involved in such business activities. A case has been opened and we have confiscated all the items.
“We are working on determining the value of the items and will try to trace where they may have originated from. If we get proof of ownership, we will hand them back.”
A police investigation into the unnatural death of Ilovu late last month led to the discovery of the “suspicious items” at his house.
Ilovu, 54, was discovered dead in his house behind Gwashamba mall a few days after he was reported missing. It was initially reported that he had shot himself.
Ilovu was reported to have committed suicide, but the circumstances under which the incident happened led to the police investigation.
He was reported missing, but it was discovered he had left behind all his vehicles, his cellphone and various keys to his businesses.
