The Presidency says there was an attempt by armed robbers to burgle the residence of the Chief of Staff to the President, Ibrahim Gambari, early Monday morning.

The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, made this disclosure in a two-part tweet on Monday night.

He tweeted, “The Chief of Staff, Professor Ibrahim Gambari has confirmed that there ‘was a foolish attempt’ to burgle his residence at 3:00am this morning but it turned out to be unsuccessful.

“Professor Gambari, whose house is on a street next to the Villa has assured that there is nothing to worry about from the incident.”

VANTAGE NEWS had reported that an online news platform, Peoples Gazette, had reported that armed robbers invaded Aso Rock and emptied Gambari’s residence as well as the residence of an Administration Officer in the Presidency, Abubakar Maikano.

“The robbers took away as much as possible from both places,” a security officer that confirmed the incident said. “What is more unfortunate is that no one has been arrested,” the news platform had reported.
