It was yesterday reported that the residence of the Deputy Senate President was broken into by suspected assassins. This report has however been dismissed by the police, saying the incident was a case of burglary.

Ekweremadu had told the Senate yesterday that his residence was attacked in the early hours of yesterday and alleged that it was an assassination attempt on his life.

But the Force Public Relations Officer, Mr. Jimoh Moshood, said in a statement to journalists that it was a case of burglary

He stated:

“The same suspects had earlier, at about 0300hrs, broken into the residence of one Mr. Haliru Adamu of No. 38 Denis Osadebey Crescent, APO Legislative Quarters, where they stole phones, jewelry and other valuables before proceeding to the residence of the Deputy Senate President.”

Police say investigation is currently ongoing and the suspect is being interrogated to understand if they had any ulterior motive.
