Armed men suspected to be assassins last night invaded the house of embattled former National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Olisa Metuh, located at Prince and Princess Estate, Abuja.
The armed men numbering about eight fired several shots and forcefully gained entrance into the compound after destroying a section of its spiked security fence, Richard Ihediwa, Special Assistant to Chief Olisa Metuh said in a statement on Wednesday.
According to the statement, “they tied up security guards and a driver at the premises and attempted to gain access in the main building, but could not due to the security doors at the front and back entrances of the main house.
“When they could not gain access into the main building, they beat up the security guards and ordered them at gunpoint to call out Chief Metuh using their phones, but the guards insisted that he was not at home but had travelled to the east.”
The statement said out of frustration, the invaders broke into other buildings in the premises including Chief Metuh’s out-office where they carted away some documents and electronic equipment.
“Their escape route trailed with blood as one of the armed men got injured in the course of their breaking through the spiked security fence.
“Already, a shocked Chief Metuh had made an official report to the police to unravel those behind the attack and intention manifested in the incidence. Chief Metuh’s guards and driver are already assisting the police in their investigation,” the statement said.
