So, who killed Kudirat Abiola?

This should be the question on the lips of every man and woman of conscience, considering the acquittal last week of Maj. Hamza al-Mustapha, Chief Security Officer of ex-military dictator, Gen. Sani Abacha. Al-Mustapha, until his acquittal, had been in detention since 1999 for the murder of Kudirat Abiola, wife of M.KO. Abiola, winner of the June 12, 1993 presidential election who himself died in detention in July 1998.

The state reception and effusive welcome party for al-Mustapha must be gut-wrenching for any Nigerian who lived through the horrors of the Abacha dictatorship. As Abacha’s Chief Security Officer, al-Mustapha was the point man of the murderous triumvirate that comprised Ismaila Gwarzo, National Security Adviser and Frank Omenka of the notorious Directorate of Military Intelligence. They had as their henchmen Barnabas Jabila (a.k.a Sgt. Rogers), Muhammed Abdul (a.k.a Katako), Alhaji Danbaba, and Rabo Lawal amongst others.

IBB Has No Hand In Abiola’s Death, Says Brother

Mubashiru Abiola, the head of the Abiola family of Gbagura, Abeokuta, Ogun State, southwest Nigeria, and younger brother to Moshood Abiola, the winner of June 12, 1993 presidential election on Wednesday absolved former military president, Ibrahim Babangida, of any complicity in the death of Abiola.

Mr Abiola, who spoke with newsmen at the family house at Oja-Agbo area of Abeokuta, said Mr Babangida has been a very good supporter of the family since the death of his brother.
He said, “Babangida does anything we want in this family, unless he did not hear about it. He has been very supportive to this family. There was a time Abiola’s daughter was having her wedding, Babangida was here with his wife. They came all the away from Minna and sat down with us all through the programme. He left his wife to stay with us till the second day. She slept in MKO’s house till the second day.

How MKO Abiola Was Killed By Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Theodore Bethnel Zadok

We relieve the last moments of the late Chief M.K.O. Abiola  publicly by the man who should know: Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Theodore Bethnel Zadok, who for the two years before the chief’s death was in charge of his living and imprisonation in government custody.
Zadok in his evidence-in-chief at the hearing of the petition by Abiola’s first son, Kola and physician, Dr. Ore Falomo, related how he was apparently handed away from Chief Abiola, and by the time he returned to him, he had been offered tea, only to be dead a few minutes thereafter.
Reading from a prepared text, the police officer said: "I was posted to head the detention base of Chief M. K. O. Abiola with about thirteen (13) body guards under me. and since the day I took over the duties of the detention camp of Chief M. K. O. Abiola I was responsible for collecting the sum of N800,000 (Eight Hundred Thousand Naira) quarterly from Major Hamza Al-Mustapha to the commissioner of police FCT command Abuja for his feeding.
