One thought on “Killing of Bolanle Raheem: Lagos High Court to Commence Trial of Police Officer, Drambi Vandi on Monday”
Kudos to the Nigerian and Lagos government for upholding justice. We must remember that the life of every Nigerian is equally important and no one is above the law. If every law offender is tried justly, we can have an egalitarian society.
