Bola Ige’s family holds communion service on 20th death anniversary

The family of the late attorney-general of the federation Bola Ige will on Thursday, December 23 hold a memorial communion service at St Anne’s Church, Molete, Ibadan, Oyo State capital in his honour.

Ige, who was also a former governor of Oyo State, was killed on December 23, 2001 in his Bodija, Ibadan home by yet-to-be-identified gunmen.

His son Muyiwa Ige, a former Osun State commissioner, told journalists that the thanksgiving event will begin by 1pm.

“We are hopeful that close associates of our late dad will honor us with their presence at the church on Thursday. It will be brief,” he said.

Ige added that there will be a stage play at the same time at the Wole Soyinka Arts Theater inside the University of Ibadan. The theme of the play is Ige: From Kaduna Boy to Cicero of Esa Oke.
