Trouble seem not to be over for former President Olusegun Obasanjo as President Muhammadu Buhari has directed the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, to reopen investigation into the unresolved murder of former Attorney-General and Minister of Justice, Bola Ige.

The directive also include fresh investigation into the killing of  a former Deputy National Chairman, South-South, of the PDP, Aminasoari Dikibo.

Both men were murdered when Chief Obasanjo was President and were considered politically motivated.

Former President Obasanjo last week raised alarm over an alleged plot by the federal government to jail him indefinitely. Read here

Recall that Chief 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.

Muyiwa Ige, son of late politician said it would be glorious, if the family could get  justice 16 years after.

 “I knew right from the advent of the administration of President Buhari that the matter would be resurrected. The President is in the right direction. To God be the glory. It’s a new day; we are happy, we will get justice after 16 years.

“We are happy that all those who murdered our father, including the star witness, will be brought to justice. It’s good news.”
