The Presidency on Thursday evening broke its silence on the recent accidental discharge involving a security operative in the Aso Presidential Villa, reassuring that the Villa remains safe.  

Presidential Spokesman Garba Shehu said in a statement issued in Abuja: “According to the reports received so far, the security official involved in this incident is not attached to the State House. Rather, he came on invitation as a witness in an ongoing investigation and was required, as is the rule, to surrender his weapon at the gates before entry.

“Investigation revealed that the operative conducted the normal safety precaution as professionally required when the pistol accidentally fired.

“The lady by his side, a caterer was hit by a pellet of the bullet. Both of them were attended to at the clinic and discharged.”
