According to reports, thieves broke into Aco Estate Gardens on Airport Road in Abuja and robbed tourists of their money and possessions.
Residents of the neighbourhood, including Ezenwa Alfred, informed Daily Trust that on Monday, June 20, at around 8 p.m., six robbers broke into the garden next to the Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT) offices and began shooting randomly before robbing victims.
“I was leaving the garden to my house after I received a call that I had a visitor. I was just some few metres away when I started hearing gunshots.”
He added that he was told a few minutes after that robbers invaded the garden and robbed guests.
Another witness, identified as Samuel said the robbers alighted from a car some metres away from the guests and trekked to the entrance of the garden before attacking their victims.
“In fact, one of the robbers first came as if he wanted to buy a drink. Moments later when I started hearing gunshots I escaped through the back.”
He said no guest sustained an injury during the attack, and the robbers fled immediately after they were done.
