He said: "With new facts emerging about Yar'adua's death, President Buhari should open a new investigation into what actually happened to the late president.

"The hitherto belief was that his death was as a result of a natural, terminal illness, recent revelations has proved otherwise. We must clear this fog of history. What killed President Umaru Yar'adua and who killed Umaru Yar'adua?"
