02 June 2015, 13:09

Abuja - The Inspector-General of Police, Solomon Arase, said the murder case of former former Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation, Bola Ige could be reopened, Punch reports.

Solomon said that the investigation into the murder failed because it was not based on proper intelligence.

It will be recalled that the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in Osun State and a former Chairman, Senate Committee on Appropriation, Iyiola Omisore, the immediate past Minister of Police Affairs, Jelili Adesiyan, and the current National Secretary of the PDP, Prof. Wale Oladipo, were arrested and charged for the murder.

Arase, who was a member of the special homicide unit that investigated the case, said the investigation was also marred by the political atmosphere at the time.
