In spite of 2020 #EndSARS nationwide protest against police brutalities and killings, Police have again killed another well-meaning Nigerian, a female lawyer, Omobolanle Raheem, in Lekki, Lagos.

Omobolanle was shot dead in her car by an Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) attached to Ajiwe Police Station, Lekki.

Omobolanle’s husband was driving when the incident happened on Sunday.

The cause of the killing is not immediately known but Persecondnews gathered that the crazy, dare-devil Supol allegedly pulled the trigger at Ajah under bridge in Lekki on Christmas day.

He immediately fled the scene but was later arrested and is currently being detained by the police.

Meanwhile, Mr YC Maikyau (SAN), the President of the Nigerian Bar Association has waded into the killing, demanding justice.

Also a lawyer, Sir Augustine E. Ibolo, has reacted, saying: “Today the 25th day of December 2022, a Policeman said to be from the Ajiwe Police Station opened fire and shot dead at close range an unarmed civilian, a very seasoned female Lawyer and a member of the Nigerian Bar Association Lagos Branch, Omobolanle Raheem, in the presence of her husband.

“The incident is said to have happened at Ajah under bridge, while the deceased and her husband were both in their vehicle.

“Mr YC Maikyau, SAN, the President of the Nigerian Bar Association is presently on the matter and we sincerely commend Mr President and all his Excos for the prompt response and a good job.”

“The matter is currently streaming across most legal platforms and we commend KUBWA EXPRESS for a job well done.

“This is one death too many and we cannot continue to watch and see our colleagues die at the hands of these blood thirty individuals who ought not to even be a part of the security architecture of the Nigerian Police in the very first place. Rest on Omobolanle!!!, Ibolo of NBA Nyanya-Karu Branch, Abuja, said in a statement given to Persecondnews.

Confirming the incident, the spokesman for Lagos Police Command, DSP Benjamin Hundeyin, said the ASP is already in custody.

He said: “The officer involved in the shooting is an ASP; he has been arrested, detained, and will be transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department, Panti, Yaba, for further investigations.”
