President Goodluck Jonathan has directed the acting Inspector General of Police (IGP), Muhammed Abubakar, to find the killers of Mr. Oyerinde Olaitan, the Principal Private Secretary of Edo Governor, Adams Oshiomhole.
The president gave the directive at the opening of a one-day Presidential Workshop on Power at the Banquet Hall of the Presidential Villa in Abuja on Monday.
Jonathan expressed his condolence with Oshiomhole, who was present at the event as a participant.
He said he had directed the IGP to re-open all cases of murder in the country for further investigations.
``Having cited the Governor of Edo State, let me again express our condolences over the death of his executive assistant under circumstances that we are looking into.
``I have directed that cases of murder must be properly investigated in this country.
`I believe at the end of the day, we will know what happened, not just in Edo State but security challenges that are facing us on daily basis.’’
Jonathan condemned the spate of killings in the country, saying that the country could not continue on that “barbaric path”.
Olaitan was murdered in his home in Benin in the early hours of Friday.
