The former Nigeria ruling party, the people’s democratic party, PDP, has revealed that bandits are the ones behind the security breach at the Presidential Villa Abuja.
The party said the alleged security breach was an indication that President Muhammadu Buhari could not secure Nigeria.
They further stated that it was the Unknown Gunmen that attempted to break into the office of Buhari’s Chief of Staff, Ibrahim Gambari.
Garba Shehu, the president’s spokesperson confirmed the incident via his Twitter handle.
The president’s spokesperson said that the attack was not successful.
While reacting to the issue, the former ruling party marveled at the laxity of security around the statehouse.
In a series of tweets, PDP said “is alarmed by the invasion of Aso Presidential Villa by bandits and armed robbers,” adding that “the development further points to the collapse of security command structure under President @MBuhari’s incompetent watch.”
“The party says that the reported bandit assault on the residence of the Chief of Staff to Mr. President, Prof. Ibrahim Gambari, within the precinct of the Presidential Villa, is too close to home and has heightened apprehensions over the capacity @MBuhari Presidency to secure the nation.
“All over the world, the Presidential Villa, as the seat of power and national sovereignty, is the fortress of the nation that ought to have impregnable security.
“As such, any breach of security, particularly by outlaws and in sequence, sends a clear danger signal to the overall security of the nation.
“It is imperative to state that such security infraction, that gave way for outlaws to invade the Presidential villa in sequence, despite its perceptibly secured ambience, can only happen under an absentee President, who has not demonstrated the required capacity expected of his office,” it said.
PDP also urged the President to sit up to his responsibilities of ensuring the protection of lives and properties in the country.
