President Buhari Condemns Killing of Lawyer

President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday condemned the killing of a member of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), Omobolanle Raheem, on Christmas Day by on-duty policemen.

Buhari expressed shock and sadness after learning of Raheem’s brutal murder.

The President also directed police to take “the strongest possible action” against those already detained.

Garba Shehu, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, made this known on Tuesday.

Buhari said this incident is a stark reminder of the recurring menace of the mishandling of weapons and a wakeup call to law enforcement agencies, including the Police, to ensure the full implementation of reforms instituted by the administration on the subject of weapons handling as well as the protection of the rights of citizens.

“In this hour of grief, the nation stands in solidarity with the bereaved family and the NBA. I assure you that justice will be done in this case,” the President said.
