A lawyer, Mrs Omobolanle Raheem, was killed on Christmas Day by men of the Nigerian Police, Ajah Division.

She was murdered on her way from Church in Ajah, Lagos. Bolanle was shot pointblank beside her husband.

The Inspector-General of Police, IGP, Usman Alkali Baba, has condemned the shooting and killing of Mrs Omobolanle Raheem, a lawyer.

She was allegedly shot and killed by a Policeman attached to Ajiwe Police Station, Ajah, Lagos State.

A statement by Force Public Relations Officer, Force Headquarters, Abuja, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, said the IGP described the incident as unfortunate and sad.

He said the IGP had ordered speedy investigation and prosecution of the officers responsible for the ugly and unprofessional act, “which doesn’t portray the Nigeria Police Standard Operating Procedure and core values.”

“In the same vein, the IGP commiserates with the family, friends, and colleagues of the deceased as he prays for the repose of her soul.

“He further assures the general public of justice in the case while he warns officers and men of the Force to be professional and people-oriented in the discharge of their duties and operate within the ambit of the law, as the Force’s leadership will not condone any inappropriate or unprofessional acts,” Adejobi said in the statement.
