The presidency has admitted that there was an attempt to burgle the residence of Prof. Ibrahim Gambari, the chief of staff to President Muhammadu Buhari.
It was gathered that it was reported that Gambari and an administrative officer at the presidency simply identified as Maikano, were robbed. An online report had noted that armed robbers invaded Aso Rock and emptied the residences of Gambari and Maikano.
In a response on the night of Monday, May 10, Malam Garba Shehu, the senior special assistant to the president on media and publicity, confirmed the incident, saying: “The chief of staff, Professor Ibrahim Gambari has confirmed that there “was a foolish attempt” to burgle his residence at 3:00 am 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.”
Recall that Gambari succeeded the late Abba Kyari, who died in a Lagos hospital while treating coronavirus in April 2020.
