THE Osun State House of Assembly has announced the revocation of the warrant of arrest issued against Muyiwa Ige, the immediate past commissioner for Lands, Physical Planning and Urban Development, over his alleged refusal to appear before the lawmakers investigating a land matter at Ilobu.
The former commissioner is a son of the late Bola Ige, a former minister of Justice and former governor of Old Oyo State between 1979 and 1983 under the Unity Party of Nigeria.
The revocation was contained in a statement on Friday, December 15, and signed by Lekan Odediran, a personal assistant to Ige.
The statement said: “Osun State House of Assembly in another announcement aired on Osun State Broadcasting Corporation on Thursday at 6pm informed that all issues had been resolved while the earlier warrant of arrest has been revoked.
“The State House of Assembly members led by the Acting Speaker, Hon. Adegboye Akintunde met with Arc. Ige where all issues were sorted and emphasis was laid on communication gap.”
The statement quoted Ige as restating that he was not aware of the invitation by the lawmakers and that was why he did not honour the invitation.
While assuring that he would not relent in contributing his best for the development of the state under the able leadership of Governor Rauf Aregbesola, he stressed that he would not derail from the training and upbringing by his late parents.
