There was confusion at the General Aviation Terminal of the Murtala Muhammed Airport Ikeja in Lagos on Friday as a gun allegedly belonging to a security personnel ‘accidentally’ discharged and injured three persons.
Although no life was lost in the incident, it was gathered that the injured persons were allegedly standing close to the security personnel when the gun went off.
The Sun reports that the security personnel, who was being attended to across the canter failed to put the gun on safety catch, hence the explosion.
Those who heard the sound of the gun took to their heels, thinking it was a terrorist attack.
The situation was brought under control by the airport security.
The injured persons were taken to the airport clinic for treatment.
