The Lagos State High Court sitting at the Tafawa Balewa Square annex, Igbosere, Lagos Island has convicted and sentenced to death by hanging, a suspended Assistant Superintendent of Police, ASP, Drambi Vandi, for the murder of Lagos-based lawyer, Mrs Omobolanle Raheem.
Delivering the judgement, Justice Ibironke Harrison, held that the prosecutor, the Lagos State Government, proved the case against the convict beyond all reasonable doubt.
The court stated it found the defendant guilty on one count of murder and sentenced him to death by hanging.
On January 16, the Lagos State Government arraigned Vandi before the court for shooting to death the forty-one-year-old pregnant lawyer at the Ajah underbridge checkpoint on December twenty-five, last year.
The convict faced a one-count charge of murder contrary to Section two hundred and twenty three of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, two thousand and fifteen.
