Gbajabiamila has confirmed the death, disclosing that the officer who fired the fatal shot has been suspended.

In a statement sent to newsmen on Friday, ASP Mariam Yusuf, Public Relations Officer, FCT Command, clarified that the security agent was not a police operative.

The spokesperson commiserated with family and friends of the deceased.

The statement assured that the police will be lucid in its investigation and ensure the findings are made public.
