How Lagos policeman killed my seven months pregnant wife – Bolanle’s husband



Omobolanle’s husband, Gbenga Raheem, revealed that his wife was murdered during her seven-month pregnancy.

Omobolanle was a female attorney who was fatally shot by Assistant Superintendent of Police Drambi Vandi.

Gbenga spoke on Monday, when sympathisers paid a visit to his home in Lagos State’s Ajah district.

Omobolanle, who already had a child, was reportedly seven months pregnant at the time of the tragedy.

Vandi, who was attached to the Ajiwe Police Station, Ajah, Lagos State, was said to have spent 33 years in the police force.

Narrating the incident, the victim’s husband, Gbenga, said: “On December 25, my wife, nieces, nephews, and cousins, who had come for the holiday, all went to church. On our way back, my wife said since it was Christmas Day, we should take everyone out, so, we went to a supermarket at Abraham Adesanya, then to Domino’s Pizza.

“After that, we headed towards Ajah to do a U-turn to come back to Abraham Adesanya. When we took the U-turn, we saw policemen stopping some vehicles. As we approached them, they said we should stop, and in the process, we heard a loud sound on my wife’s side window. All of a sudden, I saw blood gushing out of her chest.

“I immediately ran out; my sister-in-law, who was also with us, ran out and held the policeman; he cocked his gun at her too. Talking to him was pointless, so I went to see if anything could be done; I saw my wife gasping for breath, and by that time, my sister-in-law had brought the policeman into the car and pushed him into the front seat.

“We drove to a hospital but they said they couldn’t handle it; we eventually took her to Grandville Hospital, where she was confirmed dead. The policemen took her body and put it in the truck; they wanted me to follow them but I said I needed to go and settle my children.”
