The Federal Government said yesterday that it was confused on how to go about the investigation of the murder of the private Principal Secretary to Edo State governor Mr Olaitan Oyerinde, even as the office of the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) said it has not been able to prosecute anybody. Oyerinde was killed on May 4, 2012 by unknown gunmen in his bedroom in Benin, Edo State capital.
Presently, two sets of suspects have been detained over the murder. One set of suspected robbers were arrested by the Department of State Security (DSS) as being responsible for the killing, while the police also have another set whom they are claiming, are the brains behind the murder. Both sets of suspects are currently in police detention waiting on the office of the AGF to take a decision on which set to face the law.
