Raheem was shot dead by ASP Drambi Vandi attached to the Ajiwe Police Station, Ajah, Lagos State.
In a Twitter post on Wednesday, December 28, Falz issued a warning to Lagos State governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, and the Nigerian Police force that not punishing the policeman responsible for the killing of Raheem could lead to chaos.
In another tweet the same day, the activist referenced the #EndSARS protest of 2020 and how young Nigerians were treated for protesting against police brutality then, noting that nothing had changed.
Tagging Lagos governor and the police in his tweets, he wrote: “@jidesanwoolu @PoliceNG When we refused to leave the streets in October 2020, we were referred to as recalcitrant #EndSars youth 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 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, however, vowed that justice would be granted speedily, condemning the act.
The governor took to social media to express his shock at the incident and also sympathized with the family and friends of the deceased, describing the incident as a “mindless shooting of a citizen.”
