Ajah Shooting: Sanwo-Olu Condemns Cold-Blooded Killing Of Bolanle Raheem, Commiserates With Family 

The Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has expressed shock and sadness over the gruesome killing of a Lagos lawyer, Mrs Bolanle Raheem by a police officer in the Ajah area of the state.

Bolanle Raheem was reportedly shot and killed by a trigger-happy police officer on Christmas day while on his way from church. 

Read the full statement by the governor below;

With utter shock and sadness, I received the news of the mindless shooting of a citizen by a police officer whose primary job function was to protect the same citizen. 

I hereby sympathize with the family, friends and associates of late Bolanle Raheem. 

I am therefore assuring everyone of the State Government’s full support and cooperation with the police authorities in their investigation to unravel the remote and immediate cause of the shooting, that led to Bolanle’s untimely death, with a view to ensuring that justice is served.

I have studied preliminary reports on the matter and have instructed the appropriate Government officers to immediately get on it. We must ensure a speedy justice for the late Bolanle. Our Government cannot sit back and watch our citizens killed by the same law enforcers that should ordinarily protect them.

I’m aware that the Lagos State police command have arrested, disarmed  and detained the police officers involved in the shooting incident. I can assure you that the accused persons will have their day in Court  and nothing will be spared under the Laws of Lagos State until justice is served adequately. We will ensure that it is done speedily because justice delayed is justice denied.

I would also appeal to residents to remain calm and not take the law into their hands on the matter, the State Government will live up to her responsibilities and get justice for the late Bolanle Raheem.
