Funsho Williams death case to experience fresh law suit.

A Federal High Court in Lagos on Wednesday struck out an application seeking fresh investigations into the murder of a late governorship aspirant in Lagos, Funsho Williams. Justice Rita Ofili-Ajumogobia, who
struck out the application for want of
diligent prosecution, also awarded a
cost of N25,000 against the applicant,
Bashir Junaid, a cemetary attendant. Junaid is to pay the money to the
Inspector General of Police and the
Attorney General of the Federation, who had asked the court to strike out the matter with cost against the applicant.

Williams, an aspirant on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, was on July 27, 2006 strangled to death at his residence, 34A Corporation Drive,
Dolphin Estate, Ikoyi, Lagos.

A Lagos State High Court in Igbosere
had, on June 30, 2014, discharged six
men charged with the murder of the late
PDP stalwart.
