My Father Was Killed Out Of Jealousy – Bola Ige’s Son, Muyiwa
Muyiwa, one of the sons of Nigeria’s former Attorney-General and Minister of Justice, Chief Bola Ige (SAN), has said that those who killed his father were jealous of him.
This statement was made by Muyiwa during the 90th posthumous birthday of Late Bola Ige.
At the time of the death, Ige was the Deputy National leader of Afenifere, a pan Yoruba socio-cultural organisation. His murderers are yet to be identified since assailants attacked his Bodija, Oyo State home on December 23, 2001.
“My father really loved young people. He also believed in the emancipation of the common man and elevating young people. A lot of his peers didn’t like him for that because they could not understand the young people”. Muyiwa said.
