Funsho Williams Resurrects! Accused wants case Reopened
LAGOS—A cemetery attendant, Bashir Junaid, has prayed a Federal High Court, Lagos, to grant an order of Mandamus ordering the Inspector General of Police to reopen investigations into who murdered Mr. Funsho Williams, a one time governorship aspirant in Lagos State.
Junaid, who was arrested and detained for years over the case was praying the court to compel the Attorney General of the Federation, to direct the appropriate organ in the criminal justice administration in Nigeria, to commence prosecution of the alleged suspects in the murder of Mr. Funsho Williams.
The plaintiff who claimed to be a loyalist of former governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, claimed he suffered unjustly after he was arrested and detained by security agencies, hence his determination to fight for justice.
