Bolanle Raheem: Court sentences killer cop to death for murder

A suspended Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP), Drambi Vandi, has been convicted and sentenced to death by hanging by the Lagos State High Court sitting at the Tafawa Balewa Square annex, Igbosere, Lagos island, for the murder of Lagos-based lawyer Mrs Omobolanle Raheem.

The prosecution, the Lagos State Government, has established its case against the convict beyond all reasonable doubt, according to Justice Ibironke Harrison.

“The defendant is found guilty of murder on one count by the court.” “You will be hanged by your neck until you die,” the judge said.

Vandi was arraigned in court on January 16 for fatally shooting the 41-year-old pregnant lawyer at the Ajah underbridge checkpoint on December 25, 2022.

The convict was charged with one count of murder in violation of Section 223 of the Lagos State Criminal Law of 2015.
