FFK makes shocking revelation following Al-Mustapha’s claim
Former Chief Security Officer to the late Head of State, General Sani Abacha, Major Hamza Al-Mustapha has revealed how his former boss died.
Speaking with This Day, Al-Mustapha said Abacha died after a brief illness this is contrary to the speculation that he died after eating an apple from his concubines.
Al-Mustapha said the late military ruler’s health suddenly collapsed on June 7, 1998, from the Abuja International Airport, after one of the security personnel, who accompanied President Yasser Arafat of Palestine shook hands with him.
He said: “Shortly after the handshake, I noticed the change in the countenance of the late Commander-in-Chief, and I immediately informed the Aide-de-Camp, Lt. Col. Abdallah, who advised that we keep a close watch on him.
“Later in the evening of June 8, 1998, around 6 p.m., his doctor came around and administered an injection to stabilise him. He was advised to have a short rest.
At about 5 a.m, the security guards ran to my quarters to inform me that Abacha was very unstable.”
Al-Mustapha disclosed that he thought the officers who came to his house was an attempted coup plot, so he had to divert their attention on his movement to Abacha’s residence.
He added: “When I got to the bedside of the Head of State, he was already gasping. Ordinarily, I could not just touch him. It was not allowed in our job. But under the situation, I knelt close to him and shouted: ‘General Sani Abacha, Sir, please grant me permission to touch and carry you.
“I again knocked at the stool beside the bed and shouted in the same manner, yet he did not respond. I then realised that there was a danger. I immediately called the Head of State’s personal physician, Dr. Wali, who arrived in the place in eight minutes from his house. He immediately gave Abacha two doses of injection, one at the heart and another close to his neck. This did not work apparently, as the Head of State had turned very cold.
“He then told me that the Head of State was dead and that nothing could be done after all.”
Meanwhile, former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode in reaction to Al-Mustapha’s revelation in series of tweets revealed that Abacha was killed by one of the bodyguards of late Palestinian President, Yasser Arafat.
The former minister claimed that Arafat’s bodyguard poisoned Abacha through a handshake with the knowledge of the United States, Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and two former Nigerian heads of state.
“Gen. Sani Abacha was killed by one of late Yasser Arafat’s bodyguards. He administered poison to him through a handshake.
“This was done at the behest of the CIA. Two former Nigerian Heads of State and a former Head of Military Intelligence who are also CIA agents knew about the plan.
He also claimed that “The same people decided that MKO Abiola had to be killed as well in order to balance the equation. The CIA, through Susan Rice and Ambassador Pickering, did the rest.
“Nigerians please know your history and find out the truth. Stop accepting the lies that are fed to you and stop brushing evil under the carpet.
“Neither Abacha nor Abiola deserved to be murdered even if we did not all agree with either or both of them. The CIA has no friends and there is nothing more despicable than working for a foreign intelligence agency against your own people and nation.” FFK tweeted.
