Bolanle Raheem Killer Drambi Vandi Trail Update 2024
Police officer Drambi Vandi fatally shot Bolanle Raheem. The funeral services were organized at the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG).
After that, the case of Drambi was going on, and recently it turned the other way. Justice Ibironke Harrison reserved the date for ruling after the defense counsel, Mr. Adetokunbo Odutola, presented his last written address on behalf of his client.
This was in response to a no-case submission application filed before the court on February 20, 2023. During the proceedings, Odutola presented an argument based on the ballistic report, indicating that the gun did not match the fired bullet.
The defense argued that the pathologist’s testimony contradicted the prosecution’s claim, as the pathologist stated that the bullet entered from the left through the armpit. In contrast, the prosecution alleges that the deceased was shot in the chest.
Furthermore, the state government charged the defendant with one count of murder under Section 223 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015. The case was recessed until April 3 for a ruling by Justice Harrison following arguments from both sides.
