Two injured in Aso Rock as firearm goes off

Accounts given by eyewitnesses confirmed that that the incident occurred at the administrative block of the Villa.

The incident occurred when an operative of the Department of State Security (DSS) was attempting to empty his gun as requested by the security officers attached to the reception, since he was not among the security officers assigned to the reception.

In addition to the female worker, the security operative himself sustained injury in the incident, which created a mini-panic.

The woman was injured on her thigh and a part of her back.

At press time, there is no official statement on the development.
