The Nigerian Bar Association has stated the reason for shelving the burial of its member and police shooting victim, Mrs. Bolanle Raheem.
The female lawyer and realtor was shot to death by a certain assistant superintendent Drambi Vandi, attached to the Ajiwe Police Division, Ajah, last Christmas.
The NBA, in a statement signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Mr Habeeb Lawal, in Lagos, said that the new dates for the burial ceremonies of Raheem would be communicated.
“Contrary to the earlier announcement released by the family of the late Bolanle Raheem with regard to her burial arrangements, new dates will be announced soon.
“This is as a result of sensitive matters discussed with the family during the visit of the NBA President, Y.C. Maikyau (SAN), who led a delegation to the family
“In addition, the NBA is planning a befitting event for lawyers to pay their last respect to their deceased colleague.
“This event will be championed by the NBA Lagos Branch and full details will be announced soon,” it said.
