Justice Must Be Done – Buhari Condemns Killing Of Lagos Lawyer




December 27, (THEWILL) – President Muhammadu Buhari has condemned the “heinous and senseless” killing of Omobolanle Raheem, a member of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), shot by on-duty policemen on Christmas Day in Lagos.

Mrs Raheem was shot dead by an Assistant Superintendent of Police 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.

Reacting to the incident, President Buhari in a statement, issued Monday night, by Garba Shehu, his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, said he was deeply shocked and saddened to learn of the brutal killing and directed the Police authorities to take “the strongest possible action” against the culprits already held in detention.

President Buhari said the incident was a stark reminder of the recurring menace of the mishandling of weapons and a wakeup call to law enforcement agencies including the Police to ensure the full implementation of reforms instituted by the administration on the subject of weapons handling, as well as the protection of the rights of citizens.

“In this hour of grief, the nation stands in solidarity with the bereaved family and the NBA. I assure that justice will be done in this case”, the President stated.
