Gbajabiamila has confirmed the death, disclosing that the officer who fired the fatal shot has been suspended.
In a statement sent to DAILY POST on Friday, ASP Mariam Yusuf, Public Relations Officer, FCT Command, clarified that the security agent was not a police operative.
“Contrary to the misleading information, preliminary investigation into the unfortunate incident reveals that the security aide who shot at the vendor is not a member of the Nigeria Police Force.”
