Armed robbers have attacked Aco Estate Gardens along Airport Road in Abuja and dispossessed fun seekers of their money ,and valuables.

A resident, Ezenwa Alfred, said the robbers who were six in number invaded the garden beside the headquarters of the Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT), around 8pm on Monday and shot sporadically before robbing people.

He said, “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 said some minutes after he was told 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.

He said, “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 though no guest sustained injury during the attack, the robbers fled immediately.

There was no response from the FCT Police Command on the incident.
