IGP Reacts After Police Officer Shot Dead Female Lawyer In Lagos
The Inspector-General of Police, Usman Baba, has reacted to the killing of a female lawyer by a police officer on Christmas day in Lagos.
While condemning the act, the IGP ordered an investigation into the killing.
Recall that Omobolanle Raheem was allegedly shot dead by a trigger-happy policeman attached to Ajiwe Police Station, Ajah, Lagos State.
The IGP also ordered the prosecution of all police officers involved.
The Force spokesperson, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, revealed in a Monday statement obtained by our correspondent.
Adejobi said, “The IGP, who described the incident as unfortunate and sad, has ordered speedy investigation and prosecution of the officers responsible for the ugly and unprofessional act, which doesn’t portray the Nigeria Police Standard Operating Procedure and core values.
“In the same vein, the IGP commiserates with the family, friends, and colleagues of the deceased as he prays for the repose of her soul.
“He further assures the general public of justice in the case, while he warns officers and men of the NPF to be professional and people-oriented in the discharge of their duties and operate within the ambit of the law, as the Force’s leadership will not condone any inappropriate or unprofessional acts.”
