Speaking on the incident, DCP Jimoh Moshood, the Force Public Relations Officer, while addressing newsmen on Tuesday in Abuja, explained that the incidence was a burglary and not an assassination attempt.
The spokesman said that similar incident also took place at the residence of Haliru Adamu, a neighbour of the deputy president.
“Investigation so far carried out in the incident does not have any link to assassination attempt,” he said.
He said that one of the suspects, Mohammed Yusuf, who was arrested by the police was in custody and had made useful statements.
