Osogbo—Former Deputy Governor of Osun state, Senator Iyiola Omisore, has described the decision of the Federal Government to revisit the killing of the former Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice late Chief Bola Ige and Chief Aminasoari Dokubo as good and a welcome development.


Senator Omisore and some of his political associates including the former Minister of Police Affairs, Alhaji Jelili Adesiyan, were main suspects in the case of the dastardly killing of chief Ige in his Bodija Ibadan residence on December 23, 2001.

He was arrested and prosecuted in Ibadan before the High court which eventually discharge and acquitted him and other suspects.

But Senator Omisore who spoke through his Media Director, Prince Diran Odeyemi in a statement in Osogbo yesterday however urged the Federal Government to extend its search towards unravelling the killers of late Funso Williams and Hon. Oduayo Olagbaju just to mention a few.

Omisore also advised the Federal Government and the Inspector General of Police to widen the scope of their investigation to all areas rather than limiting themselves to a particular area or section.

Speaking further, he said; “I am particularly happy that fresh investigation will further exonerate me and others who were wrongfully framed up, suffered untold hardship before we were finally acquitted and discharged by the court”

He however prayer to God to expose all the people and whoever is connected to all the killings under investigation while wishing the new IGP the best of luck in the task.
