The Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to President Muhammadu Buhari, Garba Shehu, has deleted a tweet on the attempt to burgle the residence of another Aso Rock official.
This is coming after the Presidency confirmed that there was an attempt to rob the residence of the Chief of Staff to the President, Ibrahim Gambari.
The President’s spokesman about an hour after he commented on what he described as a “foolish attempt” to burgle Gambari’s residence, tweeted on a similar incident on the residence of Abdullahi Maikano, an official at the presidency.
Shehu had tweeted, “The Chief of Staff, Professor Ibrahim Gambari has confirmed that there “was a foolish attempt” to burgle his residence at 3:00 this morning but it turned out to be unsuccessful.
“Professor Gambari, whose house is on a street next to the Villa has assured that there is nothing to worry about from the incident.”
Moments later, he tweeted on the attempt to burgle the residence of Maikano.
The presidential spokesman had said the suspect behind the incident was captured on Closed Circuit Television (CCTV), adding that the police were on his trail.
But surprisingly, he deleted the tweet and posted a fresh one that had no information on the CCTV part.
It is unclear if Shehu expunged that part because he felt it could hamper the investigation which he said was ongoing.
