“GUNMEN” Â have staged a brazen attack on the empire of nightclub boss John Ibrahim, synchronising drive-by shootings at two of his properties including his eastern suburbs clifftop mansion.
Only one person has been injured in those attacks – Mr Ibrahim’s brother Sam – but one of the latest attacks left a woman and her seven-year-old son cowering in theÂ Merrylands home they rent from the nightclub owner.
Mr Ibrahim yesterday hit back at the gunmen, releasing a statement through his lawyer Stephen Alexander that “the class of 2010-2011 is the most gutless thatÂ Sydney has ever produced”.
However, while Mr Ibrahim was not talking to detectives yesterday, he appeared to lash out at the police, adding that: “Sydney’s finest will solve this mystery as they’ve solved all the other Ibrahim shootings.”
