The Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Usman Alkali Baba, has recommended the immediate suspension of Drambi Vandi, an Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP), responsible for the killing of Barrister Omobolanle Raheem while waiting for the detailed report on the incident.

This was contained in a statement by the Force Public Relations Officer, Olumuyiwa Adejobi on Wednesday.

According to the statement, the IGP noted that the recommendation for the suspension of the officer is in line with the internal disciplinary processes of the Force.

“The IGP further noted that the suspension is also expected to create an enabling environment for necessary legal procedures to uphold justice in the case without interference. The suspension is without prejudice to the constitutional presumption of innocence in favour of the officer. 

“Meanwhile, the IGP has reaffirmed the commitment of the Force to the Rule of Law and assured the public of his administration’s commitment to ensuring that justice is not just done but seen to have been manifestly done in the matter. He therefore appeals to the public to be calm as all hands are on deck to ensure justice prevails while measures have been put in place to prevent future occurrences,” the statement read.
