A Lagos-based lawyer, Mrs Omobolanle Raheem, who was shot dead on Christmas Day in Lagos by an Assistant Superintendent of Police, ASP, Drambi Vandi, has been buried in the Ikoyi area of the state amid tears.

Mrs. Raheem was interred after a funeral service at the Olive Tree Parish of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Banana Island, Lagos.

The chairman of Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), Lagos Branch, Ikechukwu Uwanna lamented during the church service, saying, “Once again, we’ve lost a member, a very, very active member of our branch.
