Presidential media aide, Garba Shehu, has informed that the security official involved in the incident is not attached to the State House.

Shehu further explained that the official came on invitation as a witness in an ongoing investigation. He was then required, as is the rule, to surrender his weapon at the gates before entry.

It was gathered that the operative conducted the normal safety precaution as professionally required when the pistol accidentally fired.

But the lady by his side, said to be a caterer, was hit by a pellet of the bullet.

They were both attended to at the State House clinic and discharged.
