On Monday, the Lagos State government arraigned Drambi Vandi, an assistant superintendent of police who allegedly shot the decease before a state High Court sitting at the Tafawa Balewa Square for murder.

Vandi was docked before Justice Ibironke Harrison on a one-count charge of murder contrary to Section 223 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.

He pleaded not guilty to the charge. The arraignment which was scheduled for 9 am was initially delayed by the absence of the defence counsel in court.

Following the development, Justice Harrison was forced to stand the matter down to allow the lawyer, Adetokunbo Odutola, to get to court.

Also, during the proceedings, the prosecution called its first witness, police inspector, Mathew Ameh. In his testimony, Ameh told the court that his team, which includes the defendant, were deployed to Ajah under the bridge where they were conducting stop-and-search operations.
