Bolanle Raheem: Vandi pleads not guilty to murder

Court - lagospost.ng

Alleged killer of a Lagos-based lawyer, Omobolanle Raheem, ASP Drambi Vandi on Monday pleaded not guilty to a one-count charge of murder preferred against him by the Lagos State Government.

Vandi was arraigned before Justice Ibironke Harrison at a Lagos High Court sitting at the Tafawa Balewa Square on Monday.

His arraignment which was slated for 9 am was initially delayed by the absence of his counsel to defend him in court.

When the case was called, the Lagos State Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice, Mr. Moyo Onigbanjo, SAN, who is leading the prosecution had told the court that he was informed the defense counsel was still on his way.

The court had to stand the matter down until the arrival of Mr. Adetokunbo Odutola, Vandi’s counsel.

Also present at the court with Maikyau was the Chairman of the NBA Lagos Branch, Ikechukwu Uwanna; and other executives of the association to monitor proceedings.
