Ige Family Seeks Justice From GMB Over Father’s Murder

Ige Family Seeks Justice From GMB Over Father’s Murder
Muyiwa, who expressed strong believe that the family would get justice this time around said; the killers of his late father would be brought to book and made to face the full wrath of the law. Muyiwa, who is an Architect and Osun State Commissioner for Lands and Physical Planning, revealed that the killers of his late father would be found this time although it is almost 14 years since the murder took place.

He said the case has been stalled for several years, but expressed optimism that it would not be so under the new administration.

The son of the late icon while speaking on the reason those that assassinated his father have not been arrested after almost a decade and half, disclosed that the family already knew who they are.
He insisted that the case must reopen once the new government is sworn in on May 29, 2015.

“We know the killers, they are still out there walking, but sooner or later the killers will be found. Once we have a concerned government in power, we will fish out the killers. I thank God that on May 29 a concerned government will take over. When we have the government that believes in the rule of law, we are going to push for the case to be reopened. Right now, the prime suspects have no power base. We are going to reopen the case and, hopefully, justice will prevail,” he said.

James Ajibola Idowu Ige (SAN) popularly known as Bola Ige was a lawyer and politician. He rose to the position of a Federal Minister of Justice for Nigeria.

Ige was assassinated in his Bodija, Ibadan- home on December 23, 2001 by yet to be identified gunmen.
Some high profile politicians were implicated in the murder of justice but nobody has been apprehended till date.

The assassination sparked a lot of reaction among Nigerians, especially the Yoruba ethnic group who right from the onset suspected foul play. Nigerians still remember the law icon every December 23 of each year by pouring out warm regards to his family members.
