Bandits Raid Senator Jubrin’s Abuja Home
Senator Walid Jubrin, the former Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Peoples Democratic Party has cried out after suspected bandits raided his home in Apo 3 in Abuja.
Sen Walid Jibrin who revealed that his residence at Brains & Hermas Estate Apo 3 FCT Abuja, was attacked by bandits said the attackers said they were searching for N5 billion and ammunition.
The former BOT Chairman disclosed that the bandits came in seven SUV cars with sophisticated weapons and ordered his houseboy, identified as Awwalu to take them into his bedroom where they ransacked and carted away some documents.
While addressing a press conference, Walid explained that the attack was the second time bandits were raiding his residence.
At the press conference Walid said, “Ladies and Gentlemen, can I use this opportunity to announce that recently some suspected bandits/kidnappers forcefully entered my rented house at the Brains & Hermas Estate, Apo 3 FCT Abuja by seriously vandalising my main bedroom going away with vital documents.
“They tied my houseboy, Awwalu, and told him that they came to take away N5bn hidden by me and also to take away some so-called ammunition kept by me but unfortunately found nothing at all.
“Even though I was not at home when they came in the afternoon, they forced my houseboy, Awwalu to the bedroom but alas found nothing.
“They took my houseboy away and later dropped him somewhere after informing him that they took the exercise because they were looking for such a big amount as N5bn and some ammunition kept by me but found nothing at all.
“The bandits came with about seven Sport Utility Vehicles, eight persons with sophisticated ammunition. I have since reported the matter to the Inspector General of Police who directed the Commissioner of Police, FCT, to handle the matter. The CP is still in investigation.”
He added, “I want to announce that I have never kept such an amount of money or any ammunition in my house. It is important also for the whole world to note that I do not own any personal house in FCT Abuja. I also never have any personal house in my Local Government Council headquarters in Nasarawa LGA or any house in my Nasarawa State capital, Lafia.
“The current house attached in the Brains and Hermas Estate is a fully rented house that will expire in three months’ time. I want to assure all that I still remain a man of honour and integrity who never worked with the Federal Government.
“I will always remain a company executive in the Nigerian 175 Textiles and now a National Life Patron of the industry and also a strategic member of the National Council of Manufacturers Association of Nigeria.
“It is also important to state that I am a true Nigerian politician who served up to the position of the chairman, PDP Board of Trustees until recently when I voluntarily resigned from that prestigious position,” Walid stated.
