Bolanle Raheem: Alleged Killer Cop ASP Vandi Pleads ‘Not Guilty’

January 16, (THEWILL) – A suspected killer cop, ASP Drambi Vandi, Monday, pleaded not guilty to the alleged killing of a Lagos-based lawyer, Mrs. Omobolanle Raheem, on Christmas Day.

Mrs Raheem was allegedly shot dead by ASP Vandi on Christmas Day, in the Ajah area of Lagos. The cop and his team were said to have tried to stop Raheem and her family members as they drove back home from a church service.

Docked before Justice Ibironke Harrison, ASP Vandi was arraigned on Monday, before a Lagos State High Court at the Tafawa Balewa Square, on a one-count charge of murder, contrary to Section 223 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015

However, at the commencement of the trial, a witness, Inspector Matthew Ahmen, said they were conducting a stop and search when the alleged murder of Mrs Raheem occurred.


He said Vandi, who was the leader of their team, was behind while he was in the middle, and another colleague, Inspector Dimini, was in the front.

Ahmen said, when Dimini saw a car coming, he flagged it down but the “car didn’t stop, and when the car got to where he was standing, he also flagged the car down but the car didn’t stop as well.

“The next thing I heard was a gunshot and I looked back to see what was happening and I saw that a windscreen was falling.

“The next thing I saw again was a dark woman, who jumped down from the vehicle and I heard her saying that ‘oga you have killed my sister.’ The woman held him and before I and Dimini could get to them, they had entered the car, locked it, and left”
