Late Attorney General, Bola Ige's Son - Nigeria Not Worth Dying For


The son of Late Human Right Activist, Mr. Muyiwa Ige yesterday said the family has handed over the masterminds and killers of his father, Chief Bola Ige to God for punishment.

The former Commissioner for Lands and Physical Planning in Osun State, spoke with newsmen during a service held to commemorate the 15th anniversary of the former Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice. Chief Bola Ige, was assassinated at his Bodija residence in Ibadan, on December 23, 2001. Muyiwa said, although his father died for democracy to thrive, Nigeria was not worth wasting one’s life for.


He said, “We thank God for his mercies. We thank God for wonderful legacies. It has not been easy but God has kept us on and by the grace of God, all the perpetrators behind his (Ige) death, God will deal with them. It was my father’s death that took away my mother some 20 months later.

“But whether the country wants to immortalise my father or not, I don’t care inasmuch as the State Government of Osun has named a university after my father, which is massive. “It is the highest level of immortalisation. The road in this community is about 5km and it is named after my dad. There is a Bola Ige Information Technology Centre in Abuja. There are streets in Oyo State named after him.

“My father believed in Nigeria. He said Nigeria was worth living and dying for. The truth of the matter is, once your heart is in the right place, Project Nigeria is worth pursuing for all of us. Death is what we all owe and he paid the price for democracy to thrive.

“I am not so sure that Nigeria is worth dying for; however, we all have a responsibility to ensure that we don’t waste our lives for Nigeria.”
