Bola Ige's Family Raises Alarm Over Family Impersonation Plot Seeking To Exonerate Senator Omisore

PRESS STATEMENT ON THE PLOT TO IMPERSONATE THE BOLA IGE FAMILY:


"This is to apprise the general public, security agencies, and well meaning Nigerians that Information has reached members of the family of the late Attorney-General and Minister of Justice, Chief Bola Ige (who was assassinated on 23rd December, 2001), that a governorship aspirant and prime suspect of the botched murder trial of our father, who also superintended the physical assault on the person of Chief Bola Ige on 15th December, 2001, has perfected plans to bring an impersonator, who will claim to be a member of the family, to speak at his campaign rally in Osogbo this week.


It was learnt that the impersonator will attempt to exculpate someone from being a suspect in the killing of our respected Patriarch, the justice of whose murder case is yet to be determined.


We state here that there is no authentic member of the Ige family, be it from the nuclear or extended family, who will come out to aggravate the pains we still feel in our hearts over the murder of our dear father, uncle and relation, by speaking at a campaign rally. It will be sacrilegious to so do. We have been struggling for years since the gruesome murder to mitigate the pain by ensuring that the masterminds, and their cohorts, involved in the murder are brought to justice.

We urge members of the public to disregard any impersonator that might have been bought to make any statement exonerating any person. This plan is part of the calculated plot to further irritate the lingering pains of the murder of our patriarch and to attempt to further 'dance on Ige's grave'.

We are united as a family that justice is only delayed in this case and that we are still hopeful and resolute to see that those responsible for the killing, directly or indirectly, are brought to justice notwithstanding their wealth or social standing.

 T'eni begi loju, igi a ru'we.

Signed: Mr. Akin Ige, Mrs. Funso Adegbola (for Ige family)
