Abuja - The police is set to re-arraign suspects who were earlier arrested and detained in connection with the murder of a former Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Bola Ige.
According to Punch, all the suspects that were arrested in 2002 who were later freed would be apprehended again for fresh arraignment and prosecution in respect of the case.
It was learnt that the initiative to re-open Bola Ige’s murder case was from the acting Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris.
President Muhammadu Buhari, had directed the Acting Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, to reopen investigation into the unresolved murder of former Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Bola Ige, and ex-Deputy National Chairman, South-South, of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Aminosari Dokubo according to News24.
The president urged the police boss to ensure the perpetrators of the acts are arrested and prosecuted.
Bola Ige was shot dead in his bedroom in Bodija, Ibadan, home at about 9pm on December 23, 2001, after he arrived Ibadan from Lagos at about 8.30pm while Aminosari Dokubo, the late PDP Deputy National Chairman was killed near Asaba, Delta State on October 22, 2004 while returning to his base from Abuja after a meeting.
Dokubo’s assassination at the time was alleged to have been caused by certain disagreements with the powers that be in his political party, prior to the general elections.
