The Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Usman Alkali Baba, has recommended that Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP), Drambi Vandi, who allegedly killed Lagos lawyer Mrs Bolanle Raheem on Christmas day in Lagos, be immediately suspended. 

The police chief revealed that his immediate suspension would subsist pending receipt of a comprehensive information on the incident.

The IGP added that he has made the recommendation in obedience with the internal disciplinary procedures of the Force.

This was confirmed in a statement released by the Force spokesperson, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, a Chief Superintendent of Police (CSP).

“The IGP further noted that the suspension is also expected to create an enabling environment for necessary legal procedures to uphold justice in the case without interference.

“The suspension is without prejudice to the constitutional presumption of innocence in favour of the officer.

“Meanwhile, the IGP has reaffirmed the commitment of the Force to the rule of law and assured the public of his administration’s commitment to ensuring that justice is not just done but seen to have been manifestly done in the matter.

“He, therefore, appeals to the public to be calm as all hands are on deck to ensure justice prevails while measures have been put in place to prevent future occurrences.”

The Informant247 recalls that the legal practitioner was gunned down by a police officer on Sunday.

The incident happened when the deceased legal practitioner and her family were proceeding home from Christmas service on Sunday.
