My wife bled to death on Christmas day – Widower

CITIZENS COMPASS– TWO days after a female lawyer, Omobolanle Raheem, was allegedly shot dead by a trigger happy policeman in Ajah, Lagos, the bereaved husband, Gbenga Raheem ha narrated how the deceased bled to death.

Until her death, the deceased, a graduate of the Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ago Iwoye, Ogun State, recently moved from litigation practice to property law.

Omobolanle, was shot dead by an Assistant Superintendent of Police, Drambi Vandi.

On the fateful day, Omobolanle, the widower and other members of the family were together in the car when the unfortunate happened.

“On December 25, my wife, nieces, nephews, and cousins, who had come for the holiday, all went to church. On our way back, my wife said since it was Christmas Day, we should take everyone out, so, we went to a supermarket at Abraham Adesanya, then to Domino’s Pizza.”
“After that, we headed towards Ajah to do a U-turn to come back to Abraham Adesanya. When we took the U-turn, we saw policemen stopping some vehicles. As we approached them, they said we should stop, and in the process, we heard a loud sound on my wife’s side window. All of a sudden, I saw blood gushing out of her chest.”
“I immediately ran out; my sister-in-law, who was also with us, ran out and held the policeman; he cocked his gun at her too. Talking to him was pointless, so I went to see if anything could be done; I saw my wife gasping for breath, and by that time, my sister-in-law had brought the policeman into the car and pushed him into the front seat. “We drove to a hospital but they said they couldn’t handle it; we eventually took her to Grandville Hospital, where she was confirmed dead. The policemen took her body and put it in the truck; they wanted me to follow them but I said I needed to go and settle my children.”
