The Nigerian Bar Association Lagos Branch has said that it would monitor the prosecution of the police officer who allegedly shot dead a female lawyer Omobolanle Raheem.
Ebun Olu-Adegboruwa (SAN) said that he would lead a team of lawyers from NBA which would partner with the Lagos State Ministry of Justice in prosecuting the police officer.
He added that the NBA would seek for payment of damages not less than five billion naira.
Adegboruwa called for re-orientation for all police officers and men in the handling and use of weapons and called for the training of police officers and men on basic human rights observance and enforcement as well as improved welfare package for all police personnel in terms of salaries, conditions of service, places of work, and residences.
He also urged the recruitment of more police officers and men to reduce pressure on existing ones for effective policing.
ASP Drambi Vandi, attached to the Ajiwe Police Division in Ajah, Lagos State, was alleged to have committed the murder. PULSE
