The three armed were said to have gained access into his Etete resident located in the Government Reservation Area after scaling his perimeter fence however their mission was aborted when the security guide raised an alarm as they fled.

His security guide who identified himself as Eugene said he woke up from sleep when he heard the sound of the invaders when they jumped into the compound at about 3am.
” When I heard the sound of movement within the compound I came out and saw 3 men carrying cutlasses and sticks hiding behind the back apartment, so I quickly sneaked open the dog cage and raised an alarm before they flee through the same point they gain access into the compound.
As at the time of filing this report Imagwe could not be contacted for comment over the incident.
