Following the reported directive of President Muhammadu Buhari that the case of the, Bola Ige, be revisited, a former deputy governor of Osun State, Iyiola Omisore, has expressed confidence that his name will be cleared at the end of the investigation.

Mr. Ige was shot and killed in his bedroom, in Bodija, Ibadan, at about 9pm on December 23, 2001 by unknown gunmen.

Mr. Omisore, who is currently facing charges of corruption, was a key suspect in the case and was detained for months during the administration of former President Olusegun Obasanjo, which made fruitless effort to fish out the killers.

Vanguard reported   on Monday that President Muhammadu Buhari had also directed Ibrahim Idris, the acting Inspector General of Police, to investigate the killing of Aminasoari Dikibo, the ex-Deputy National Chairman, South-South, of the Peoples Democratic Party.

Dikibo was returning to his base from Abuja after a meeting when suspected assassins attacked him as he arrived Delta State. He was killed near Asaba on October 22, 2004.

Omisore in a statement by his media aide, Diran Odeyemi, on Tuesday, welcomed the decision of the Federal Government to revisit the killing of the former Minister of Justice and Dikibo.

He however urged President Buhari to extend his search towards unravelling the killers of late Funso Williams and Oduayo Olagbaju.

Omisore also advised the government and the Inspector General of Police to widen the scope of their investigation to all areas rather than limiting themselves to a particular area or section.

“I am particularly happy that fresh investigation will further exonerate me and others who were wrongfully framed up, suffered untold hardship before we were finally acquitted and discharged by the court.”

 “I pray that God will expose all the people and whoever is connected to all the killings under investigation while I wish the new IG the best of luck in the task.”(independentnig.com/ Premium Times)
