Newspaper vendors in Abuja are protesting the death of their colleague, Ifeanyi Elechi.
Elechi was fatally shot on Thursday by a security operative attached to Femi Gbajabiamila, House of Representatives Speaker.
The incident happened within the Three Arms Zone as the lawmaker’s convoy journeyed.
The Surulere representative in a statement confirmed that the officer has been suspended.
On Friday, the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Police Command stated that the culprit was not a policeman.
ASP Mariam Yusuf, the Public Relations Officer, FCT Command, disclosed that Commissioner of Police, Bala Ciroma has ordered an investigation.
