A Federal High Court in Abuja has ordered the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice (AGF) to re-open investigation and prosecution of those who murdered the founder of Newswatch Magazine, Dele Giwa, in 1986.

Dele Giwa was murdered on October 19, 1986 in his Lagos office through a letter bomb.

Delivering judgment on Friday in a suit against the AGF, Justice Inyang Edem Ekwo held the Chief Law Officer of the Federation is under obligation to prosecute and penalize killers of media practitioners in the country.

Apart from Dele Giwa, the court ordered that the killings of other journalists in the discharge of their lawful duties must be investigated and perpetrators brought to book in line with the provisions of the law.

The Incorporated Trustees of Media Rights Agenda, MRA, had dragged the AGF before the court for the enforcement of fundamental rights of media practitioners to safety as guaranteed by the 1999 Constitution and African Charters on Human Rights.

Justice Ekwo in the judgment ordered the Federal Government to ensure adequate protection and safety of lives of journalists as enshrined in sections 33, 39 of the Constitution and Articles 4 and 9 of the African Charters on Human and Peoples Rights.

This is great news. Hope is gradually being restored to NGR. As the good book says, "there shall be no peace for the wicked".

It will all grind to nothing. They are dusting up Dele Giwa's case to shut Babangida up for saying that the military could take over government. If  indeed it happens who becomes the head of state? Another northerner ( Fulani) ? We will resist and reject that in Jesus Name.

Don't forget to tell your children that a bag of rice was 2 ,500 naira during Obasanjo 's regime. It slightly increased to 8,500 in Goodluck Jonathan' s time. The same bag of rice is hitting 80,000 naira a bag today. Tell me why thunder will not strike you this year.
