‘I’m ready to unravel the killers of Bola Ige’ — Professor Wole Soyinka

Nobel laureate, Prof Wole Soyinka, on Thursday declared that he was ready to get involved in the legal process to reveal the killers of a former Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Chief Bola Ige.

It would be recalled that Bola Ige had on Saturday in a statement insisted that the resumption of an investigation into Ige’s murder was already hamstrung and disrobed of credibility with the emergence of a prime suspect in the case as the National Secretary of the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC)

A former deputy governor of Osun State, Chief Iyiola Omisore had emerged the party’s national secretary at the 2022 national convention of the APC held from March 26 to 27, where 77 national officers emerged.

In 2002, he was arraigned for Ige’s murder but later acquitted alongside 10 others tried for the case.

Omisore, who replied to Soyinka’s position in a statement, also instructed his lawyer to write the elder statesman demanding a retraction of the comments.

Ige, also an ex-governor of old Oyo State, was assassinated by suspected gunmen at his Bodija, Ibadan, Oyo State, home on December 23, 2001.

The playwright spoke at a media interaction in Lagos titled, “Forget the past, forfeit the future: A nation seceding from humanity.”
