On December 23, 2001, Ige, a member of the Olusegun Obasanjo government, was assassinated.
Iyiola Omisore, the former governor of Osun State, was arrested and held for the assassination after he was impeached in 2002, although he denied any participation.
Soyinka said it was astounding that the APC could appoint someone who was connected to Ige’s assassination one of its executives in an interview with Channels Television on Monday.
“To actually catapult one of those crime suspects and proven contributors, and to find that that person has been given a position in that party (APC), in governance, and after the President (Muhammadu Buhari) had actually inaugurated a re-examination of that episode amongst other crimes, that is quite a bit of shock.
“And I mentioned at a time, that it is a bit of sacrilege. And remember, this Osun is Bola Ige’s State,” Soyinka said.
