The late minister of Justice was killed at his Bodija home in the Oyo State capital city of Ibadan, 10 years ago – the culprits were never captured and the case went cold.

However, Oyo State’s Governor Abiola Ajimobi and Osun State’s Governor Rauf Aregbesola announced, during the 10th memorial of the deceased, that the case will be reopened.

In a statement by ACN’s Director of Publicity and Strategy, Mr. Kunle Oyatomi and the party’s Acting Chairman Elder Adebiyi Adelowo, the party said Nigerians need to know Ige’s killers, the Nation reported.

Adelowo called it shameful that the nation’s security and intelligence community have been unable to make arrests or reasonable headway in the investigations.

He said: “No matter how long it takes, we must fish out those criminals and make them face the law. That is the only way to restore confidence in the security and intelligence community of the federation, which appears to be failing to meet the expectations of citizens.”
