Masked musician, Lagbaja has reportedly turned down an offer made by the Iyiola Omisore Campaign Organisation to perform at the grand finale rally & reception for Pres. Jonathan scheduled to hold in Osogbo, Osun State, this week accusing Omisore of being behind the Bola Ige murder.
The Nation newspaper reports that Lagbaja had been approached to entertain supporters of Omisore at the forthcoming Osun state gubernatorial election rally but he promptly turned them stating that although Omisore had been been acquitted for the murder of late Attorney-General of the Nation, Bola Ige, he believed that Omisore was still culpable of the offence.
In his words:
“Though the court of the land discharged and acquitted you (Omisore) in the murder case against the former Minister of Justice in Nigeria, the late Cicero of Esa-Oke & foremost nationalist, Chief Bola Ige, I have deep-rooted innermost conviction that you are culpable in the death of my mentor and benefactor. If you offer me all the allocation of Osun State during your four-year-tenure peradventure you win (which I seriously doubt), I will not perform for Iyiola Omisore governorship election.”
