Bolanle Raheem: Falz sends open letter to Gov Sanwo-Olu

Famous Nigerian recording artist, actor and rights activist Folarin Falana, better known as Falz the bahd guy, has sent an open letter to the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, regarding the murdered Bolanle Raheem.

Falz, on Wednesday, in an open letter to the governor on his Twitter handle, demanded justice and transparency.

The human rights activist did not fail to remind the Governor about all that went down during the EndSARS protest two years ago in Lagos and how youths were tagged troublemakers for demanding better governance and the right treatment for law enforcement officers.

Issuing advice and a stern warning to the governor, the singer stated that there would be an open invitation to chaos if the trigger-happy police officer is not punished and the details of justice proceedings transparent for all to see.

He wrote, “@jidesanwoolu @PoliceNG When we refused to leave the streets in 2020 October, we were referred to as recalcitrant #EndSars youth that just wanted to make trouble. TWO YEARS after a panel made recommendations regarding those cases, they have yet to be implemented.

“Another officer in police uniform took the life of a pregnant Bolanle Raheem on Christmas Day. If this person is not punished & all details PUBLISHED for everyone to see, I am afraid many will interpret that as an invitation to chaos. Humble advice.”

Recall that a Lagos-based lawyer, Bolanle Raheem, was shot and killed by a police officer identified as Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Dambri Vandi attached to the Ajiwe Police Station in the Lekki-Ajah area of Lagos State, on 25th December 2022.

Bolanle’s death on Christmas day has sparked reactions from different authorities from states and federal levels promising justice.

Governor Sanwo-Olu had sent a delegation to console the family of the deceased.

Members of the delegation include Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Gbenga Omotoso; the State Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Moyo Onigbanjo; Women and Poverty Alleviation Commissioner, Bolaji Dada; Special Assistant to the Governor, Tubosun Alake; and Head of Service Muri Okunola, who signed the condolence register on behalf of the government.
