The last has not been heard about Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu’s assassination attempt as the Nigeria Police Force said it has commenced investigation on the matter.
DCP Jimoh Moshood, the Force Public Relations Officer, said; “The incident is a burglary and not an assassination attempt. 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. One of the suspects, Mohammed Yusuf, who was arrested by the police is in custody and had made useful statements.”
“The suspect has been assisting the police in the investigation into the matter. We have intensified efforts to arrest other suspects who escaped from the crime scene. Adamu lost his cell phones and jewelries to the thieves, while nothing was stolen from Ekweremadu’s house. Ekweremadu and Adamu have made statements to the police in respect of the incident.”
