Suspects in Bola Ige’s Murder Confesses: We Were Paid Huge Money In Abuja

Two suspects undergoing investigation in connection with the murder of former Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Bola Ige, have reportedly opened up on their involvement.

This is coming after the Inspector General of Police, IGP, Ibrahim Idris, set up Special Investigative Team, SIT, to probe the murder of late Ige who was shot dead on December 23, 2001, by unknown gunmen in his Ibadan, Oyo State home after his security guards took permission to go and eat.

While the SIT is said to be working on unravelling some mystery financiers who provided large sums of cash for the operation to kill the ex-chief law officer, Vanguard is reporting that four days before Ige was murdered, the prime suspects in the murder had allegedly travelled to Abuja to collect huge sums of money with which the operation was paid for.

Reports say two of the yet-to-be named suspects in the murder case at the weekend confessed in their statements that the ‘Ogas’ told them to give them some time to enable them travel to Abuja to get money to sort out the cost of the operation.

A source told Vanguard that, “In fact, about four days to the date of Bola Ige’s murder, one of the prime suspects traveled to Abuja for funds. Even during the first encounter, the visit to the palace of the Ooni of Ife, where the cap of Bola Ige was removed and thrown away, the prime suspects had returned from Abuja with cash.”

According to the report, information about the money was revealed by one of the suspects because the sharing formula did not favour him.
