While attempting to give the celebrant gun salute. The round selector was possibly on rapid firing resulting in losing control of the weapon, killing the celebrant and another guest on the spot.”

We really need to stop this our ‘police-for-hire’ business. Why should police be attached to private individuals? This is a very painful and needless death.

Nigerian police and shooting live ammunition “into the air” How can you be doing a gun salute with live ammunition in an enclosed space. When you see the way some of these men carry and wield AK47 around like toys if you care for your life you will want to give them distance. 🤦♂️
