This happened on Friday, July 8, 2016, at the General Aviation Terminal (GAT) of the Murtala Mohammed International Airport (MMIA), Sahara Reporters wrote.

According to an eyewitness, the security agent, who was expected to fly with Arik Air, was trying to remove the gun magazine based on aviation regulation when the incident happened.

The gun shots hit him and an unidentified woman on the leg, causing serious injuries.

"It is a standard practice in air travel for anyone with a gun to pull out the bullet",

"This is what the security man was trying to do but incidentally the gun released the magazine which splattered and hit him and the woman on the leg as he bent down to pull out the magazine from the gun", the witness said.

This however did not stop them from trekking out of the airport terminal, from which they were taken to the hospital.
