Valentine Chinyem



The Presidency has confirmed an attempted burglary on the official residence of the Chief of Staff (CoS) to the President, Professor Ibrahim Gambari, in the villa, Abuja.

The burglars, according to the Senior Special Assistant to the President (Mefia and Publicity), Garba Shehu, attempted to break into the house at about 3am on Monday but were apparently unsuccessful.

He said, there is nothing to worry about.

Mr. Shehu shared in a tweet he shared online, said: “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.”

People’s Gazette, an online news platform, had reported that armed men suspected to be robbers raided Gambari’s residence.

The report claimed that the robbers also raided the residence of the CoS’ Admin Officer.

The report was however debunked as fake news by Bashir Ahmad, Personal Assistant on New Media to President Buhari.
