Justice Ibironke Harrison of a Lagos High Court has sentenced a police officer, Darambi Vandi, to death by hanging for shooting dead a Lagos-based lawyer, Mrs Omobolanle Raheem, on the last Christmas Day.
“The court found the defendant guilty on one count of murder. You will be hanged by the neck till you are dead,” the judge said.
Drambi Vandi killed Mrs Raheem, an expectant mother, on Christmas Day in 2022 at the Ajah roundabout in Lagos.
The police officer is attached to the Ajiwe police division in the Ajah area of the state. He was suspended two days after the incident.
