Nigerians in Shock over Aso Rock Burglary, Computer Theft in NFIU office


Nigerians are in shock over the burglary attack in Aso Rock as sensitive financial documents and seven computers were stolen from National Financial Intelligence Unit (NFIU) office by unknown gunmen.

It came as a shock that Aso Rock believed to be the most secured office in the country could be burgled by gunmen.

This is coming on the heels of the arrest and subsequent suspension of Ibrahim Magu, suspended Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission. (EFCC).

Reacting to the burglary which happened overnight but was discovered Friday morning,Nigerians have taken to various social media platforms to express their thoughts.

Here are some reactions culled from Twitter;


NFIU was attacked by unknown people but its inside ASO rock?The snake has inside hands like my Yoruba elders dey talk,I’m beginning to think UDE may be right with his allegations.


If an office in the Villa could be burgled with all the CCTV network and security operatives around, I guess we can understand why insecurity reign supreme in our Nation. I don’t expect NFIU to keep such documents in a computer hard disk anyway.


they not only destroyed but carted away computers with valuables do you know what that means?, some powerful men don’t want information leak out, how do you retrieve them back when the information has been taken away?


Why are these people embarrassing us? NFIU that is in the most secured neighborhood in abuja… Why naa?


Just weeks ago, there were gunshots INSIDE aso rock.

Now, suspected thugs have invaded NFIU office INSIDE same aso rock.

It may not mean much to you until you realise aso rock is the SEAT of power.
