A witness at the scene of the incident said;

“The party was going on fine until the security man, who was holding a gun, which he claimed he had seized from some robbers, mishandled the gun and fired a shot, which hit busayo. The guard was said to be drunk.”

However the security guard who defended himself in court, said he did not know how the bullet left the gun and killed the deceased.

According to him, the men who came with the victim struggled to take the gun away from him.

“I am not trained in handling pump action gun by the opc; i was trained as a security man, but i don’t have a certificate to that effect.

“The boys, who came to the hotel on the day of the incident, were members of the eiye confraternity. I had only worked at the hotel for six months when the incident happened, but i know that the men were cultists from their behaviour.

“I didn’t fire the shot that day; it is only god that knows how the bullet left my gun and killed the deceased” he said.

Ibrahim who claimed to be a member of the Odua People’s Congress, maintained that the men were members of the Eiye Confraternity because they had been arrested before.

  1. U misfired a gun? Azeez, well we will also try it on u mistakenly too so that u can fell same impact. RIP Adebusayo. Why allow a drunk to hold gun Babcock university.

  2. Sorry for that, you need to learn how to handle gun very well, you don’t put yourself into big trouble .

  3. You fired it mistakenly or you misfired it or you were too drunk that you didn’t know when you did, just admit your crime and face the law

  4. You want us to believe you right?
    Now let me ask you, who told you to enter the party hall if you were a security?
    Is your duty post at the gate or inside the hall?
    Why were you drunk why on duty?
    Are you sure you weren’t paid to kill the girl by the cultists?

  5. According to report he was drunk which means he it possible he does not recall the incident because he was under the influence of alcohol, all same he is liable for his action

  6. I think the security guard was online looking for an excuse to free himself, without any doubt the guy fired the gun

  7. Your village people are after you and have remote controlled your gun to kill somebody. Nonsense, you don’t know how as if I helped you to press the trigger.

  8. When he did not drink responsible, he will not know that he had fired a gun. He must be punished to serve a lesson to others like him

  9. It is such lies that come out of guilty people, just like the ones we hear from our government everyday.. I believe the court wouldn’t take such lies for granted.

  10. You are allegedly drunk at the time of the incident and intoxicated,more so not trained on how to handle gun.What were doing with gun then? You must be prosecuted for wasting someone’s life.

  20. According to the eye witness and his own statement, he fired the shot, he didnt know or remember due to the fact that he was drunk. It was the incompetence attitude of drinking on duty that led him to this mess. He should face the consequence.

  24. I’m not the best to judge this case but that gun is supposed to be in safety if not that is exactly the repercussion.

  25. What kind of devil is this? How can you be carrying the gun that you don’t know how to use about.

  26. If justice is to be fine done… It should be in those guys that struggle the gun with him…. He tried to maintain and do his work as a security personnel so action or penalty shouldn’t fall on him…

  27. This one no be excuse.. Since you know that you don’t know how to use gun then why the you hold it.

  28. A case of a misfired gun. If only he had reasoned that he kept in a safe place since he didn’t know how to handle it. Now he will have face the law for his costly mistake.

  29. When you know you aren’t trained to use gun why did you fired the shot then,he must be punish for this silly mistake.

  30. Can you hear yourself speak……. Why you handle your gun properly.
