Fred Agbaje calls on Buhari to probe death of late journalist

This matter borders on public morality and public goodwill, as well as responsibility in governance.


Prominent lawyer, Fred Agbaje  has called on President Buhari to probe the alleged killing of late Dele Giwa.

Punch Newspapers reports that Agbaje said “Those who are connected to the case are still alive. Former Commissioner of Police in Lagos State, Abubakar Tsav, Ray Ekpu and others in the Newswatch, as well as Florence Ita-Giwa are still alive. Former military President, Ibrahim Babangida, is not above the law. Probe him. He is still alive.

“As the President of Nigeria and someone who was overwhelmingly voted for in the spirit of change, he must not allow this case to go without being thoroughly investigated.”

He also said "This matter borders on public morality and public goodwill, as well as responsibility in governance. If President Muhammadu Buhari can investigate the atrocities that were perpetrated by the erstwhile administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan, what prevents the same Buhari, in the interest of public accountability, to start a fresh investigation of the murder of Dele Giwa?"

“If the documentary evidence has been destroyed, the human witnesses can be invited to come and give fresh evidence in the case and to give it a fresh direction. It is in the public interest that Nigerians should know what exactly led to the death of Dele Giwa.”
