The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila, has handed over one of his security aides who accidentally killed a newspaper vendor, Mr. Ifeanyi Okereke, in Abuja on Friday.
Newspaper vendors in Abuja have gone out on the streets protesting the killing.
Gbajabiamila has, however, been devastated by the unfortunate incident. He named the security aide who shot the vendor and later handed him over to the SSS.
In one of the series of tweets he did over the incident, he said he had handed over the offensive security aide to the Department of State Security Service for investigation and action.
In an earlier tweet, the House Speaker said: “The unfortunate death of Mr. Ifeanyi Okereke at the hands of one of my security aides has left me deeply shaken.
“Mr. Okereke was a citizen going about his business, trying to make a living for himself and his family. There is no reason for his life to have ended the way it did.”
