DELE GIWA’S BROTHER TUNDE EXPOSE DELE GIWA’S KILLER AND HOW HE WAS BRUTALLY MURDERED – (MUST READ
Tunde, a younger brother of the murdered founding Editor of Newswatch Magazine, Dele Giwa, has lamented that the mastermind has not been brought to book after 30 years.
According to him, the family continued to live in pain seeing that Giwa’s killer, “who everyone knows” was still around and walking freely.
Tunde, who spoke on behalf of the Giwa family on Wednesday at a colloquium organised by the Nigeria Union of Journalists, Lagos State Council to mark the 30th anniversary of Dele Giwa’s death, begged his late brother’s colleagues not to allow the case go into archive of history unsolved.
Tunde said, “You people should help us to unravel the mystery surrounding the death of Dele Giwa. Everybody knows the person that killed him. He’s there walking freely around. I can mention his name if you want.
“Please, help us…The day I see the killer arraigned in court, I will be the happiest person on earth.”
In his welcome address, the Chairman of the NUJ, Lagos State Council, Mr. Deji Elumoye, said it was sad and regrettable that 30 years after Giwa was killed by a letter bomb, no arrest had been made and no one had been prosecuted.
“It is a matter of worry that journalists could become subjects of attacks in the course of carrying out their duty as members of the Fourth Estate of the Realm.
“Not quite long ago, a photo journalist, Mr. Benedict Uwalaka, and the Executive Director and Chairman, Badagry Prime, were killed with the complicity of security agents.”
