Buhari orders IGP to re-open Bola Ige, Dokubo’s cases

18 July 2016, 11:41

Abuja - President Muhammadu Buhari, has 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, Vanguard reports.

The president urged the police boss to ensure the perpetrators of the acts are arrested and prosecuted.

It would be recalled that 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.

Over the years, successive security operatives have failed to unravel the mysteries behind the death of these prominent figures which led to a national outrage under the then President, Olusegun Obasanjo according to Tori.
Muyiwa Ige, son of late Chief Bola Ige has commended President Buhari for his new decision as he believes justice will take its course after 16 years of being perverted.
