The gunmen who were said to have attacked the house at about 8.30pm on Wednesday, were however, not able to penetrate the house.

According to punch, the vice chancellor who assumed office in June, was out of the country as at the time of the attack.

Two of the VC’s guards were not as lucky as their boss as they were killed by the gunmen.
