Unic Services UK: One of the State Security Service (SSS) personnel attached to Nigeria’s speaker of the House of Representatives is alleged to be responsible for the death of one Ifeanyi, following a fatal shot Thursday.
In a tweet about the fatal incident that caused the death of Ifeanyi, the House speaker Femi Gbajabiamila said:
“A horrible incident has taken place. This evening [Thursday] as I left the national assembly, I stopped as usual to exchange pleasantries with the newspaper vendors at the corner. Many of them have known me since I first moved to Abuja and it was a friendly exchange. For one of them to have been shot by my security detail is horrific and I cannot begin to imagine the grief and loss Ifeanyi’s family must feel on this sad day. No family should have to go through this. I am personally distraught about this incident and my deepest sympathies go to the victim, his family and Abuja vendors.”
