By GARBA MUHAMMAD, Kaduna

A gang of armed robbers has reportedly attacked the residence of Chief of Staff to the President, Professor Ibrahim Gambari, and that of Administrative Officer, Abubakar Maikano, on the premises of the Presidential Villa, Aso Rock, Abuja.

Confirming the development, Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity Garba Shehu said that Prof. Gambari had confirmed that “there was a foolish attempt to burgle his residence at 3:00am this morning (Monday, May 10, 2021) but it turned out to be unsuccessful.”

Shehu added that Prof. Gambari, whose house is on a street next to the Villa, had assured well wishers that there was nothing to worry about from the incident.

He said in a tweet: “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.”

The development has, however, sparked heated debates and apprehension, with many commentators taking to social media platforms to lament that insecurity in the country has worsened to the extent that criminals can now dare to operate at the nation's seat of power.
