PostSubject: Ige’s murder case can be reopened –IG   Tue 02 Jun 2015, 6:42 am

Fourteen years after the gruesome
murder of a former Minister of
Justice and Attorney General of the
Federation, Chief Bola Ige (SAN), the
Inspector-General of Police, Mr.
Solomon Arase, on Monday, said the
case could be reopened.
Solomon, who spoke on Monday
during a programme, “View from
the top,” on Channels Television,
said that the investigation into the
murder failed because it was not
based on proper intelligence.
It will be recalled that the
candidate of the Peoples
Democratic Party in Osun State and
a former Chairman, Senate
Committee on Appropriation, Chief
Iyiola Omisore, the immediate past
Minister of Police Affairs, Mr. Jelili
Adesiyan, and the current National
Secretary of the PDP, Prof. Wale
Oladipo, were arrested and charged
for the murder.
They were, however, discharged by
the courts after a series of trials.
Arase, who was a member of the
special homicide unit that
investigated the case, said the
investigation was also marred by
the political atmosphere at the
time.
Arase said the suspects were made
to undergo lie detector tests.
He said, “Some people were
charged to court but just as I said
before, our investigation was not
intelligence-led. So, we tended to
situate it within the political
complexion of Osun State at that
time. And you will also remember
that there were a lot of distractions
when that investigation started.
“So, it looked as if the attention of
the police was diverted from the
original cause of the event. I
remember we also brought in the
FBI (Federal Bureau of
Investigation) and we wanted to
ascertain if the people that we had
in custody were the real people.
“So, we administered the
polygraph examination but it did
not work out. The polygraph test
showed that they were not the
perpetrators. The scientific aid we
were trying to get was not in
tandem with the circumstantial
evidence that we had gathered.
And when you have such issues, the
suspect is given the benefit of the
doubt. So, they walked away.”
Arase, who was also the Deputy
Inspector General of Police in
charge of Intelligence before he
was promoted last month, said the
case had not been closed.
The police boss said if new
evidence emerged, the case would
be revived.
He said, “Murder cases don’t have
statutes of limitation. Cases can
always be reopened as it is done in
other countries. Once there is fresh
evidence to suggest that the
probability of involvement or the
criminal responsibility of one of the
suspects in that matter is higher, it
can always be reopened. You hardly
close a criminal investigation that
way.”
Arase said it was his plan to
implement police reforms and also
increase the standard of living of
junior police officers.
The police boss urged his men to
be more professional and continue
to operate on the assumption that
suspects are innocent until
allegations against them were
proven otherwise. He, therefore,
ordered his men to stop the habit
of arresting suspects before
gathering evidence.
He said for things to improve in the
police, the best university
graduates must also join the
security agency.
He said, “We must ensure that
those who are brought into the
force are intelligent enough and
can be easily trained. When your
manpower is wrong ab initio, you
get everything wrong. So, we have
to look at our recruitment policy.
We should be able to attract the
best people into the force
