Abuja: SSS officer to Gbajabiamila who killed newspaper vendor identified


Witnesses said there were multiple shots from the Speakerโ€™s convoy, making it difficult to immediately identify the bullet that killed the vendor Ifeanyi Elechi.

Abdullahi M. Hassan has been identified by Speaker Femi Gbajabiamila as the officer who opened live rounds and killed a newspaper vendor in Abuja on Thursday.

The officer was named in a statement by the Speaker on Friday afternoon. It came hours after witnesses at the scene told NoRM that the shooting came from a police officer, although the police have denied firing the fatal shot.
