A police officer, ASP Drambi Vandi, who shot dead a Lagos-based lawyer, Bolanle Raheem on Christmas Day has appeared before the Magistrate Court in Yaba.
POLITICS NIGERIA reports that the court ordered that Vandi be remanded at Ikoyi Correctional Centre until January 30.
The Lagos State Attorney-General, Moyo Onigbanjo led the prosecution. He filed a murder charge against Vandi.
Recall that Bolanle was coming from an eatery with some family members on Christmas Day and had tried to make a U-turn under the Ajah Bridge when the policeman shot at her vehicle.
The bullet hit the 41-year-old as she was rushed to a hospital, where she was confirmed dead.
The slain lawyer, who had a child, was seven-month pregnant when tragedy struck.
The incident caused rage among many Nigerians, especially as many felt that there has been no radical change to the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) since the extraordinary EndSARS protests of October 2020.
