In a related development , the wife of the slain NURTW boss Mrs. Bolanle Eniola through her counsel Abdullahi-Iya Yakubu had petitioned the Inspector General of police ,Mr. Solomon Arase to conduct a thorough investigation that will expose and arrest the brains behind the murder of her husband. Mrs Eniola alleged that some powerful individuals working are working assiduously to undermine the investigation by FSARS policemen” My husband was murdered in broad day light during APC political rally . He had decamped from the PDP to the APC but shortly after , he was murdered by a group of persons in the most cruel manner. These murderers used hammer and wood to hit him on his head and other parts of his body until he died. They have turned me into a widow and left me to cater for my children. These same gang leaders are trying to undermine the the FSARS policemen from arresting and prosecuting the killers. Instead of them to face the law, they wrote petition to the Force Headquarters falsely accusing the FSARS team of bias after they have tried to bribe them to no avail.
