Nobel Laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka has slammed President Muhammadu Buhari for allowing and supporting the election of Senator Iyiola Omisore, a prime suspect in the murder of the late Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Bola Ige, as National Secretary of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
NewsWire NGC recalls Omisore last Saturday emerged as National Secretary of the ruling APC during its National Convention held at the Eagles Square, Abuja.
Soyinka in a statement issued on Saturday, titled: “Perhaps closed files should remain just that-Closed?” said;
“That pledge was to re-open the files on the spate of unsolved political assassinations that had plagued the nation in recent decades. Prominent among those cases was that of the Minister of Justice, murdered on his way to take up a prestigious position with the United Nations.
“Presidential response was swift. Buhari ordered the Inspector-General of Police to re-open those files and resume investigations. The nation has patiently awaited even a hint of Work in Progress.
Most, I am certain, expect no less than a revaluation of prior investigative efforts. None, to my knowledge, has attempted to rush the Chief of Police and his team into judgment. We all take solace in the knowledge that the wheels of justice grind slowly, but they arrive. Eventually,”
