A trigger happy cop has shot dead a female lawyer, Barrister Omobolanle Raheem, today in Lekki area.
An eyewitness account revealed that Barrister Omobolanle was in a car with her husband when the incident happened.
The police officer and his team according to the source came from Ajiwe police station and mounted illegal checkpoints where they extort motorists before the sad event.
The source told our correspondent that the sad incident happened on her way back from Christmas service at Ajah under the bridge.
Continuing, the source said; “The police officer is from Ajiwe station. Her husband was the one driving, Barr. Omobolanle was seated in the front with her husband.
“The officer asked them to park and they needed the vehicle in front to move so they can park well, and immediately the police officer shot at a close range right into her chest. On seeing what happened , the remaining police officers on duty there absconded.
“After a while, some police men came and moved her body to the mortuary in Yaba , without obtaining any consent from her family members. Currently her family has located where they moved her body to.”
It will be recalled that police brutality is rampant in Lekki area. Just last year, one Jelili Bakare was shot dead by police inspector Jonathan Kampani.
