Two persons were reportedly injured when a gun belonging to a security agent attached to a Nigerian senator accidentally fired shots of bullets.

This happened on Friday, July 8, 2016, at the General Aviation Terminal (GAT) of the Murtala Mohammed International Airport (MMIA), Sahara Reporters wrote.

According to an eyewitness, the security agent, who was expected to fly with Arik Air, was trying to remove the gun magazine based on aviation regulation when the incident happened.

The gun shots hit him and an unidentified woman on the leg, causing serious injuries.

“It is a standard practice in air travel for anyone with a gun to pull out the bullet”,

“This is what the security man was trying to do but incidentally the gun released the magazine which splattered and hit him and the woman on the leg as he bent down to pull out the magazine from the gun”, the witness said.

This however did not stop them from trekking out of the airport terminal, from which they were taken to the hospital.

Treat people with gunshot wounds, accident victims before police report- El Rufai directs hospitals


image

Kaduna State Governor, Nasir Ahmad El-Rufai has directed all hospitals in the state to treat persons with gun wounds and accident victims before demanding police reports. The governor said that the duty to save lives is primary, and must come ahead of formal reports to the police.
The spokesman to the Governor, Samuel Aruwan, disclosed this in a statement shortly after the 15th Kaduna State Security Council meeting held in Sir Kashim Ibrahim House, Kaduna.
“The Governor of Kaduna State, Malam Nasir Ahmad El-Rufai, has directed all hospitals in the state to, with immediate effect, start treating persons with gunshot wounds and accident victims without demanding Police Report as a basis for attention. Lives must be saved first, before the formalities of demanding Police Reports from victims.
After saving lives, hospitals and other agencies can start making inquiries regarding how the gunshot wounds and other injuries were sustained. We consider it a gross abdication of responsibility if any hospital leaves injured patients unattended because of the absence of Police Reports. What is important is saving lives. There is no reason for an innocent citizen who has survived armed robbery and needs treatment for a gunshot wound to be denied the medical attention he requires. The hospitals can comply with reporting requirements to the police after providing the care the patient needs. This is the unanimous resolution of the Kaduna State Security Council. As Governor, I have communicated this decision to the Kaduna State Ministry of Health and Human Services and other concerned agencies operating in the state. A moment of trauma is not the time to put paper before lives. All our healthcare agencies have been advised that it will amount to criminal neglect to deny or delay critical care to such patients.”Aruwan said
The meeting of the Kaduna State Security Council which endorsed the resolution was attended by representatives of the Army, Police, Air Force, Navy, DSS, Civil Defense, FRSC, NDLEA and the Customs service. Also present at the meeting were HRH Alhaji Shehu Idris, the chairman of the Kaduna State Council of Emirs and Chiefs, Emir of Birnin Gwari, HRH Alhaji Zubairu Jibril II and Kpop Gwong, HRH Paul ZakkaWyom.
