The victim’s husband, Gbenga, said, “On December 25, my wife, nieces, nephews, and cousins, who had come for the holiday, all went to church.

” On our way back, my wife said since it was Christmas Day, we should take everyone out, so, we went to a supermarket at Abraham Adesanya, then to Domino’s Pizza.

“Afterward, we headed towards Ajah to do a U-turn to return to Abraham Adesanya. When we took the U-turn, we saw policemen stopping some vehicles.

“As we approached them, they said we should stop, and in the process, we heard a loud sound on my wife’s side window. All of a sudden, I saw blood gushing out of her chest.

“I immediately ran out; my sister-in-law, who was also with us, ran out and held the policeman; he cocked his gun at her too.

“Talking to him was pointless, so I went to see if anything could be done; I saw my wife gasping for breath, and by that time, my sister-in-law had brought the policeman into the car and pushed him into the front seat.

“We drove to a hospital but they said they couldn’t handle it; we eventually took her to Grandville Hospital, where she was confirmed dead.

‘The policemen took her body and put it in the truck; they wanted me to follow them but I said I needed to go and settle my children.”

A graduate of Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ago Iwoye, Ogun State, Bolanle only recently moved from litigation practice to property law.

She was the Chief Executive Officer of Croston Homes and co-founder of City Building, a real estate and property development company.
