There is a major news making rounds in Nigeria this week. The bottom line is that former Nigeria’s army Chief Security Officer (CSO), Major Hamza al-Mustapha is saying that General Abdulsalami Abubakar ordered the killing of MKO Abiola.
MKO Abiola won the June 12 presidential election but he was never the president of Nigeria because Babangida, one of Nigeria notorious ex-dictators annulled the election.
This, the murder charge, is not a new development per se. However this time Mustapha promised to produce evidence to support his claim.
Actually we are tired of his talking. Let him produce the evidence or forever remain silent and in prison for the evil that he participated in during the dark days of military regimes.
This is not the first time the Nigerian government has been accused of state murders. Babangida is widely alleged to have killed Dele Giwa and Obasanjo is alleged to have sponsored the PDP murder of Bola Ige.
And all these murderers have never been investigated for possible prosecution.
What a country?
