The Inspector-General of Police, IGP Usman Alkali Baba has recommended the immediate suspension of ASP Drambi Vandi, the officer responsible for the shooting and killing of pregnant Lagos lawyer, Omobolanle Raheem while waiting for the detailed report on the incident.

Force Public Relations Officer, CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi disclosed this in a Wednesday statement.

Vandi, attached to the Ajah Divisional Headquarters of the Lagos State Police Command, has been in the eye of the storm following the Christmas Day shooting in the Ajah area of the state.

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,” the statement read in part.

The IGP reaffirmed the commitment of the police 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 appealed 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”.
