Bola Ige murder investigation to be reopen – Obasanjo to answer questions

the Police and other top government
security agencies have perfected plans to nail Former President
Olusegun Obasanjo over his connection with the murder of late
Attorney-General of the Federation, Chief Bola Ige and front-line
South-South politician, Chief Harry Marshall who was gruesomely
murdered in his Abuja residence in 2003.
The Police will reopen investigation into the murder of late Chief
Bola Ige and Harry Marshall.
When asked about the discharge and acquittal granted to Mr. Iyiola
Omisore and others, the suspected killers of Bola Ige, our source
said, “A murder case can go on for 20 years or more and the
government can decide to reopen the case depending on fresh
facts available to the state”.
You would recall that Bola Ige, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, was
shot dead in his Ibadan home on December 23, 2001.
Following a mass protest over the killing, the Federal Government
had deployed troops in the South-Western state to prevent a
breakdown of law and order.
Chief Marshall Harry, who was the National Coordinator, South-
South geopolitical zone of the defunct All Nigerian Peoples Party
Presidential Campaign was murdered at his No, 28 Karaye Close,
Garki II, Abuja residence on March 5, 2003, barely a month to the
presidential election in which Obasanjo was re-elected.
The ANPP chieftain was said to have been killed in the presence of
his daughter and his niece, Loliya Harry.
The only security guard in the house, Mr. Polini Aniya, said the
assailants numbering about five forced their way into the ANPP
chieftain’s residence around 3am.
The then ANPP presidential candidate and current President,
Muhammadu Buhari, had insisted that agents of the PDP and
Federal Government assassinated Harry.
It was gathered that at Harry’s burial ceremony in Nigeria’s oil rich
Port-harcourt, President Buhari, alleged that in its desperation to
rig itself into power, the PDP-controlled Federal Government of
Olusegun Obasanjo bankrolled assassins to eliminate political
opponents.
After the incident, the police arrested four suspects in connection
with the murder. However, after seven years in detention, the
accused standing trial for the murder were discharged and
acquitted by an Abuja High Court. The court cited lack of enough
evidence to sustain the charge against them.
Chief Obasanjo had today raised an alarm over plans by Buhari’s
administration to frame him up, seize his passport over false
charges.
