Bolanle Raheem, the female lawyer who was shot dead in an incident involving a police officer, has been laid to rest.

The funeral service for Raheem took place at the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Olive branch parish, Banana Island, Lagos.

Family members, lawyers, and friends graced the funeral service.

Delivering a sermon at the service, Okechukwu Enelamah, a former minister of industry, trade and investment, said Raheem’s “relatively short life” was full of great impact.

Enelamah said the circumstances that led to the death of the lawyer have elicited widespread reactions that will bring about reforms in the society.

The lawyer was buried at the Vaults and Gardens (Mayfair) cemetery.
