State Police condemns Lagos-based barrister killing, detain errant officer

The Lagos State Police Command through it Public Relation Officer, Benjamin Hundeyin on Monday condemned the killing of a Lagos based lawyer, Bolanle Raheem, by a yet-to-be-identified policeman in the Ajah area of Lagos state.

According to a statement issued out, Hundeyin revealed that the errant policeman who shot the barrister had been detained as the command commenced proper investigation into the victim’s death on Christmas Day celebration.

Hundeyin condoling with the family of the deceased said, “The Commissioner of Police, Lagos State Command, Abiodun Alabi, has expressed heartfelt condolences to the family, friends and colleagues of barrister Bolanle Raheem, who was shot dead by a police officer in Ajah on Sunday, December 25, 2022.

“On the instruction of the CP, the errant officer has since been taken into custody alongside his team members. The CP has equally directed that the case be transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department, Yaba, for in-depth investigation.

“This has become one too many, especially bearing in mind that a similar incident occurred at the same location less than three weeks ago. The condemnable incident is against the standard operating procedures and rules of engagement of the force, and to say the least is embarrassing.

“Beyond this incident, the Nigeria Police Force will carry out a reappraisal of its rules of engagement in a bid to put an end to such avoidable ugly incidents.”
