An Escalade car belonging to the minister was allegedly attack by unidentified gunmen at Ministers’ Hill, Abuja on Friday, but the occurrence was reported to the policeman, three days after the attack.
The FCT policeman Public Relations Officer, Altienne Daniel, who verified the occurrence, said the strike on the minister’s car was reported to the FCT Police order on Monday, supplementing that detectives who checked the vehicle retrieved a metallic object which was being subjected to ballistic check to ascertain whether it was a projectile or not.
“The incident was described to us on Monday at exactly 5.45pm and we are subjecting the metallic object we recovered from the vehicle to ballistic test. I can’t state whether the object is a bullet or not, so I can’t give you any data on it for now,” she said.
