Christmas Day Tragedy: ASP, 2 Others Arrested Over Murder Of Female Lawyer In Lagos

The Nigerian Police Force has arrested the officer who allegedly shot and killed a Lagos based lawyer, Mrs. Omobolanle Raheem on Christmas Day.

Omobolanle was shot dead at Ajah in Lagos State while returning from a Christmas church service. A source informed newsmen that Omobolanle’s husband was driving when police operatives pulled up the car. Her children and sister also witnessed the shooting.

Responding to a tweet by another Lagos lawyer, Mr. Kelechi Uzoka, the spokesman for the Lagos State Police Command, Mr. Benjamin Hundeyin tweeted early this morning: “Unfortunate and avoidable incident that was. The ASP that shot and two others with him have since been taken into custody. They are to be moved to the SCID for further investigation.”

Uzoka had queried the police command, saying: “Good evening @BenHundeyin, one of your officers attached to Ajiwe police Division Ajah, shot at point blank & murdered a lawyer colleague of mine today. This is one too many of similar incidents with @PoliceNG officer in Ajiwe. Now a family have lost a dear one on Christmas day.”
