Omisore made his comments via a statement released on Tuesday, July 19, 2016, Punch reports.

The statement reads:

The decision of the Federal Government to revisit the killing of the former Minister of Justice and a political icon, the late Chief Bola Ige and Chief Dokubo is good and a welcome development.

I am particularly happy that a fresh investigation will further exonerate me and others who were wrongfully framed up and suffered untold hardship before we were finally acquitted and discharged by the court.

The Federal Government and the Inspector-General of Police should widen the scope of their investigations to all areas rather than limiting themselves to a particular area or section.

The Federal Government should extend its search towards unraveling the killers of the late Funso Williams and Odunayo Olagbaju just to mention a few. The Federal Government and the IG should widen the scope of their investigations to all areas rather than limiting themselves to a particular area or section.
