The funeral proceeding of a female lawyer, Bolanle Raheem who was killed by a trigger-happy police officer on Christmas day has been postponed owing to certain critical legal procedures.
This was disclosed by the treasurer of the Section on Public Interest & Development Law (SPIDEL), of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), Funmi Adeogun, who is also a member of the Olive Tree Parish of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG).
According to Adeogun, new dates will however be communicated in due time.
The burial ceremony was scheduled to begin at 4 pm today with a wake keep at the Olive Tree Parish of the RCCG while the service was scheduled to hold tomorrow at the same venue.
The NBA’s Publicity Secretary, Habeeb Lawal, also confirmed that “there’s an understanding with the family that the autopsy report should be out before our colleague is interred. We feel it is better, in case there will be a need for a second opinion”.
