Fayose challenges Buhari to probe MKO Abiola, Funso William’s deaths

18 July 2016, 20:15

Ado Ekiti - Gov Ayo Fayose of Ekiti State on Monday challenged President Muhammadu Buhari to add the deaths of acclaimed winner of the June 12, 1993 presidential election, MKO Abiola; his wife, Kudirat Abiola; and former Peoples Democratic Party governorship candidate in Lagos State, Funso Williams, to the list of high-profile murders to be investigated by the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris.

Fayose made the call in a letter to Buhari signed by his spokesman, Lere Olayinka, and posted on social media.

Fayose was reacting to Buhari’s directive to Idris to reopen the probe into the murders of former Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Chief Bola Ige; PDP chieftain, Aminasoari Dikibo; and other high-profile Nigerians.

The letter reads in part: “Dear President Buhari, Good to hear that you have directed IGP to reopen (the murders of) Chief Bola Ige and Chief Aminasoari Dikibo and fish out the perpetrators. Mr. President Sir, can you also add the murders of Funso Williams, Kudirat Abiola and MKO Abiola to those to be reopened by the IGP?

Nigerians are interested in knowing the killers of Bola Ige as well as those who killed Funso Williams, Kudirat Abiola and MKO Abiola himself.”
