But the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, confirmed that the incident occurred very early on Monday morning.

While he was silent on the attack at Maikano’s residence, Shehu noted that Gambari confirmed what he described as a foolish attempt to burgle his house.

The presidential aide was however silent on whether any arrest was made given the level of tight security network around the residence.

“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.

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