Did General Abdulsalami Abubakar Kill Moshood Abiola, and How?

Adeola Aderounmu

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?

  1. There is no smoke without a fire. These people may not have orchestrated the murders. But the circumstances of the murders were suspicious. Why was Abiola still kept in prison? Who served him the tea, against all prison regulations? Who sent the parceled bomb (with the coat of arms stamped on it) to Dele Giwa? And if the Justice Minister of a country could be killed in his bedroom and the government could not find the killers, then your guess is as good as mine.


  2. We are not sure Al-Mustapha is speaking the truth. Why the silence over the years? As the CSO to the former brutal Dictator, his hands can not be said to be clean as he is trying to project, even if he produce the evidence he claims to have.
    That this set of murderers are still with us leaves much to be desired of our judicial systems. All allegations surrounding the death of MKO, Kudirat, Bola Ige, Dele Giwa, Relwane and a host of mudered outspoken Nigerians need to be properly investigated and perpetrators appropriately punished.


  3. Yes major Hamza Almustapha he has a documentary evidence which he give the court also the court understand that major Hamza Almustapha he is not the one that he kill latelate Abiola’s wife, Kudirat.


  4. Yes have you look at the final judgment were the final cord made for major hamza almustapha. the judge said there is no reliable exhibit, no bulet, no circumstantial evidence therefore now he is free.
