A lady lawyer was shot dead while celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ in Lagos, a city in southwestern Nigeria, Sunday afternoon.

The legal professional, Mrs. Omobolanle Raheem, was shot and killed as she was walking home from a Christmas worship at Ajah Under-bridge.

However, the identity of the officer who shot her has not yet been made public.

According to reports, the law enforcement personnel who shot the legal counsel on the day the entire world celebrates the birth of Jesus Christ is a member of the Ajiwe Police Station.

According to information obtained by Mandy News, the law enforcement officer who killed Omobolanle Raheem escaped from the scene with his teammates before other police showed up, removed her body to a morgue in the state’s Yaba neighborhood, and then vanished into thin air.

The heart – wrenching murder was disclosed to SaharaReporters by a lawyer named Yvonne, a member of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), Lagos Branch, and a close friend of the deceased.

The media outlet received a message from Yvonne on Sunday night in which she said that Raheem’s family had contacted to alert her of the sad situation and requested a lawyer to represent them before the police revised their story.

Why Was Mrs Omobolanle Raheem Shot?

According to the information we have gathered, the police officer who is from Ajiwe station saw Mrs. Omobolanle Raheem and her husband driving home from a Christmas church service. 

According to reports, her husband was the one behind the wheel and Barrister Omobolanle was seated next to him in the front.

The police then requested that they stop, and it was learned that they had to have the car in front move in order for them to park properly.

Right away, the policeman fired a close-range shot into her chest. The remaining police officers on the scene there fled after learning what had occurred.

But several Nigerians have turned to social media to express their outrage over the murder of the lawyer, who was killed in Ajah, a well-liked neighborhood in Lagos, along the Lekki-Epe Expressway.

We are hopeful that the Nigerian government would take action to stop the police killing civilians on a regular basis.

Dear reader, always be cautious when you are outside. If you are stopped by the police, kindly comply with them and raise your hand.
