Ogundokun Hails Buhari’s Resolve to Unveil Those Behind Ige, Dikibo’s Murder

By Adeola Oladele in Ibadan
A political stalwart and elder statesman, Chief Abiola Ogundokun, has praised President Mohammadu Buhari’s resolve to unveil those behind the assassination of the former Minister of Justice and Attorney-General of the Federation, Chief Ajibola Ige, and the late Peoples Democratic Party, Deputy National Chairman, Chief Aminasoari Dikibo.

In a statement by him, Ogundokun, who is the Chairman and Publisher of Conscience International Magazine, said Buhari was on the right track with the order he gave the acting Inspector-General of Police, Mr. Ibrahim Idris, to re-open the files on the two high profile cases.

According to him, the order by Mr. President, no doubt, would send the signal to criminally-minded Nigerians that no one was above the law and that justice would not again elude the families of the victims.

However, he charged President Buhari to ensure that other high profile murder cases, including the assassination of the Lagos State PDP leader, Funsho Williams, be given equal attention to make his good intention acceptable to all Nigerians.

He said: “It is very unacceptable for the evil to continue to thrive and the aggrieved and the bereaved not to get justice. The perpetrators and sponsors of these gruesome murder cases, no doubt, are moving freely about unchallenged and this is enough reason for many to lose faith in the nation’s judicial system. 

“Mr. President’s resolve to unearth the mystery of these cases would go a long way to restore our confidence that the nation belongs to all of us and not the few that believe they can commit crimes and get away unpunished. I believe evidences are still fresh to prosecute these cases and bring the perpetrators of the heinous acts to justice.”

The Publisher of the Conscience Magazine International and Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the defunct National Party of Nigeria (NPN), noted that re-opening the Ige and Dikibo’s murder cases must have brought a relief to the two great politicians’ families that hope was in sight for them to get justice for their loved ones.

The Iwo-born politician, therefore, rallied support of Nigerians for the anti-corruption fight of the Buhari administration and effort to revamp the ailing national economy, adding that creating “a platform for social justice is a worthy legacy any  government can leave behind after its tenure.”
