Nigeria rapper and activist, Folarin Falana also known as Falz, has warned the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu and the Nigerian Police Force that not punishing the policeman responsible for the killing of a Lagos based lawyer, Omobolanle Raheem could lead to chaos.

The PUNCH reported that Omobolanle was with some family members on Christmas Day and had tried to make a U-turn under the Ajah Bridge when the cop, an Assistant Superintendent of Police, Drambi Vandi, shot at her vehicle. The IGP on Wednesday ordered that the ASP in question be suspended.

Falz reacting to the development on Wednesday evening after the suspension of the ASP, tweeted that justice had better revealed in the case.

Falz, who is also a lawyer referenced the #EndSARS protest of 2020 and how young Nigerians were treated for protesting against police brutality then, noting that nothing had changed.

Tagging the Lagos governor and the police both in his tweetes on in an Instagram post, Falz said, “#jidesanwoolu #PoliceNG. When we refused to leave the streets in October 2020, we were referred to as recalcitrant #EndSARS youths that just wanted to make trouble.

“Two years after a panel made recommendations regarding those cases, they have still not been implemented.

“Another man in a police uniform took the life of a pregnant Bolanle Raheem on Christmas Day.

“If this person isn’t punished & all details PUBLISHED for everyone to see, I am afraid many will interpret that as an invitation to chaos. Humble advice.”

The Lagos State Governor, Sanwo-Olu has vowed however, that justice would be granted speedily, condemning the act.

The governor took to his Instagram page to express his shock at the incident and also sympathised with the family and friends of the deceased, describing the incident as a “mindless shooting of a citizen.”
