Falz, the rapper and activist, has called on Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the governor of Lagos state, and the Nigerian Police Force to ensure justice is served in the murder of Bolanle Raheem.


Raheem, a lawyer and lead consultant of Croston Homes, was shot dead by a police officer on Sunday morning.

The deceased, a pregnant woman, was returning home with her family on Christmas Day when an officer attached to Ajiwe police station in Ajah, Lagos, shot and killed her.

The incident has sparked widespread criticism. The Lagos police command has also detained an assistant superintendent of police (ASP) and two other officers.


In a Twitter post, Falz warned of potential chaos in Lagos if the police officer accused of killing Raheem is not “punished.”

“@jidesanwoolu @PoliceNG when we refused to leave the streets in October 2020, we were referred to as recalcitrant #EndSars youth that just wanted to make trouble,” he wrote.

“TWO YEARS after a panel made recommendations regarding those cases, they still have not been implemented.

“Another man in police uniform took the life of a pregnant Bolanle Raheem on Christmas Day. If this person isn’t punished and all details published for everyone to see, I’m afraid many will interpret that as an invitation to chaos. Humble advice.”

Usman Baba, the inspector-general of police, has ordered a speedy investigation and prosecution of the officer involved in the incident.
