The CP stated,

“Three people were involved in the operation and from what I gathered when I visited the house today (Wednesday), only one of the suspects was armed. The suspects gained entry through the canal, because the building backed a canal, and I was told that some jewellery and money were stolen. I have beefed up security in the area and also contacted the Idiroko and Seme borders to be on high alert.

“None of the residents, including Chie MKO Abiola’s wife, Bisi, and two girls in the house, was attacked or injured during the operation. We have made some arrests and commenced investigation into the incident.”

When our correspondent visited Abiola’s house, a police patrol vehicle was stationed in front of the building.

A security guard on the premises, however, declined to speak to our correspondent on the incident.

When asked about the robbery attack, the security guard said, “Is that why you are here? Please leave this place; this is a family house.”

However, a resident, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the hoodlums gained entry into the building through the back gate, adding that they dug the ground to gain access into the building.
