NBA Demands Justice For Slain Female Lawyer Bolanle Raheem


December 26, (THEWILL) – The Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) has condemned the killing of a female lawyer, Bolanle Raheem, by a police officer.

Bolanle was allegedly shot dead on Sunday, by a trigger-happy Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP), while trying to make a U-turn under Ajah Bridge, Lagos.

The unnamed policeman attached to the Ajah Police Station and his team were said to have tried to stop Raheem and her family members as they drove back home from a Christmas Day church service.

Reacting to the ugly incident, the National Publicity Secretary, NBA, Akorede Lawal, described the incident as unfortunate, noting that the president of the association, Yakubu Maikyau, was monitoring the situation.

“We are aware of this unfortunate incident. This is yet another crime against a lawyer. Regrettably, our member is gone. The NBA President @YCMaikyauSAN is right on this and we shall ensure that justice is duly served”, Lawal disclosed via his Twitter handle.
