According to Reports from Eye Witnesses Present at the Scene:


“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”.


 Vivian Gist reports: 

They, however, trekked out of the terminal to the vehicle that conveyed them to the hospital without any assistance. According to the source, the injury was not that severe.

 General Manager, Public Affairs of Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), Mr. Yakubu Dati, confirmed the incident. He said what transpired was an accident which occurred while the man was trying to remove the magazine from his gun as a standard procedure because guns are not allowed onboard aircraft but they are usually checked in, in the luggage compartment.

 Dati, who described the incident as minor, assured air travellers that all the airports are safe and secure, adding that in recognition of the security challenges in the country and around the world, security at Nigerian airports has been fortified.
