Senator Iyiola Omisore, who was deputy governor in Osun State, said he was happy with the decision to re-open the case files of the gruesome murders of the Ige and Dikibo.
He described the revisit of the cases as good and welcome development.
In a statement by his media aid, Diran Odeyemi, Omisore, urged the Federal Government to extend its search to the killers of late Williams and the late Osun State lawmaker, Odunayo Olagbaju.
He also advised the government and the acting IGP to widen the scope of their investigation, rather than limiting themselves to a particular area or section.
“I am particularly happy that fresh investigation will further exonerate me and others who were wrongfully framed up, suffered untold hardship before we were finally discharged and acquitted by the court., the statement quoted Omisore as saying.
Momoh said: “Evil has no lifespan; evil that is done can be investigated at any time. Just like the case of Dele Giwa and other cases of murder or assassination, they can be reopened at any time.
“So, there is no problem with any investigation the government intends to carry out on the cases of killings. There is nothing wrong with the investigation to be carried out. The file opened in respect of a crime can be reopened at any time until the issue is resolved either through imprisonment or otherwise.
“Unless of course, there was a cover up and the people think that the case should be reopened because there was a cover up, cases of crime can be reopened at any point except it has been resolved conclusively.”
