The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, on Saturday visited the family of the slain newspaper vendor, Ifeanyi Okereke, who was shot by his security detail.
In the speaker’s entourage were the spokesperson of the house, Benjamin Kalu, and some aides.
Gbajabiamila condoled with the wife and family of the late vendor at Kwata village, Madalla-Suleja, Niger State and pledged to ensure justice is served.
After the incident, the speaker released a statement in which he pledged to cater to the wife and the immediate family he left behind. He also identified the security aide as Abdullahi Hassan, whom the SSS has since detained.
