Gunmen suspected to be robbers invaded the residences of Gambari and another senior aide to the President, Abubakar Maikano – the Admin Officer, located close to the Presidential Villa in Abuja. The incident forced Gambari and Maikano to abandon their residences.

The burglars were said to have raided the two houses where they reportedly stole money and other valuable assets.

Shehu noted that Gambari confirmed what he described as a foolish attempt to burgle his house.

According to a statement posted on Twitter, he said; “The Chief of Staff, Professor Ibrahim Gambari, has confirmed that there “was a foolish attempt” to burgle his residence at 3:00am this (Monday) morning, but it turned out to be unsuccessful,” the President’s spokesman said in a tweet.

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

This comes amid the disturbing rate of insecurity in the country with several calls on the Federal Government to secure the lives of the people and their properties.
