An operative of the Department of State Services (DSS), identified as Seyi Adebowale, has been reportedly shot dead by an official of Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, (NSCDC), Sunday Dada.
The tragedy was said to have happened at Kuta, in Ayedire Local Government Area of Osun State, during a function at the palace of Olowu Kuta.

In a footage obtained from Daily Post, the NSCDC officer, Dada lost control of his ammunition; the bullet smashed hard on the ground before it hit the DSS officer, Adebowale, who was passing by.
