Nigerian lawyers must ensure Bolanle Raheem did not die in vain – Femi Falana

Mr Femi Falana, Senior Advocate of Nigeria, has stated that Nigerian lawyers must ensure that the death of Mrs Bolanle Raheem, a Lagos-based legal practitioner, is not in vain.

Raheem was shot dead on December 25, 2022 in the Ajah area of the state, causing widespread outrage among Nigerians.

Drambi Vandi, the officer named as the officer responsible for the killing, has been suspended by the Police Service Commission.

Falana condemned the murder and asked the Nigerian Bar Association to mobilize the masses against police brutality in Nigeria in a statement issued on Friday, December 30.

“Nigerian lawyers must ensure that Mrs Bolanle Raheem does not die in vain like others who were dispatched to their untimely graves before her,” he stated.

“Indeed, the best tribute that the NBA can pay to the deceased is to use her cold-blooded murder to mobilise the Nigerian people to end police brutality in Nigeria.

“To start with, police checkpoints must be removed from Nigerian roads. The roads should be patrolled by combined teams of officers from the police and road safety commission.”
