I will soon reveal how MKO Abiola and Abacha died – Hamza Al Mustapha

Former Chief Security Officer to the late Head of State General Sani Abacha, Major Hamza Al-Mustapha on Monday said he would soon reveal how his boss and the acclaimed winner of the June 12, 1993 presidential election, Bashorun M.K.O. Abiola, died.


Disclosing that Abacha’s and Abiola’s deaths were from same source, Al-Mustapha said he would make the comprehensive revelation in his new book, Mustapha’s Memoirs.

He said the book is still in the works. Al-Mustapha, who addressed journalists in Lagos on Sunday on a number of issues relating to his 15-year travails in detention, said Abiola and Abacha were very good friends before some fifth columnists caused disaffection between them.

He said: “For instance, when Chief M.K.O. Abiola was in prison, many notable Nigerians visited him.

“They will visit him in the morning and when they come back to the Villa in the evening to see Abacha, they would say a different thing entirely.

“Unknown to these notable Nigerians, particularly notable Yoruba personalities, who visited Abiola, their visits were recorded on video.

“I did the video recording without their knowledge.  “These people would visit Abiola and come back to tell government a different thing about him.

“These same people would still go and tell Abiola a different thing about government.

“They are on video. “The agencies of government have these videos evidence. “These same people told M.K.O. Abiola never to accept any compromise or negotiations.

“They advised him never to come back home without his mandate. “All these things are on video. “Of all the Yoruba leaders, only Oba Tejuosho told M.K.O. Abiola the truth: to accept the conditional bail and go home.

“Only Oba Tejuosho told M.K.O. Abiola that Abacha was his friend, urging him to reconcile with Abacha who was ready for reconciliation.

“It was Oba Tejuosho who told M.K.O. Abiola that he still had the goodwill and would win if he re-contests after Abacha. “What killed Abacha is what killed MKO Abiola. “But I would reveal that after my court case, still at the Supreme Court.

“I would publish a book, which has three volumes — the Mustapha’s Memoirs, which will tell what happened under Abacha and how he died.”



  1. Of what benefit will it be, those people did not die today. And why did you keep quiet all these years? Your hands are not clean.

  2. Al Mustapha is only seeking for relevance. Nobody,I repeat, nobody is interested in whatever he thinks he has against anybody as far as Abiola-Abacha debacle is concerned, he should therefore save himself the ignominy and keep those useless info to himself!

  3. Al Mustapha, it will benefit you more to dedicate the rest of your life praising and worshipping God who has in His infinite mercy spare your life to survive your most brutal and wicked Nigerian Dictator in person of Sanni Abaca.
    Nigeria is most grateful to God for surviving the man who agonised his subjects.

    Nigeria has since put Abacha and his regime including all of you who encouraged and served as willing tools of destruction to humanity to the right place you all belonged; dustbin of history. Nearly 18 years after the regime, with you spending about a decade in detention, most of your contemporaries are already on their way out. You can write the book to deceive and repaint your self white to your children who may have time to read the book, we have gotten more than enough of all Abacha did with Nigerians and our resources which he distributed to many foreign banks while you were languishing in detention. Many of the beneficiaries of the resources are up till now returning the money with trucks yet, they are still at work.
    What do we stand to benefit with what e
    One Yoruba man did in the afternoon or in the night, if any thing, we may be more interested in yet to be disclosed places where Abacha kept the loot.

  4. Let me break this sad news to you Almustafa, nobody & i mean nobody is going to buy that stupid book of yours, do you think Nigerian have forgotten how you suddenly turned yourself to a monster or a demi-god inside Aso rock. Do you think Prof. Femi & co whom you personally tortured & said so many unprintable things to during your reign will forget what you did to them easily?

  5. Why did you keep so long before talking like Nwaosu on the annulment June 12 election. Please do not distract us from the current fight against corruption. Will you also reveal your attempted assassination attack on late Senator Abraham Adesanya by Sergt Roggers and his team as well as the other atrocities that were committed under your watch! What about the yet to be discovered Sanni Abacha’s loot! Hmmmm.

  6. Hamza AL Mustapha, or whatever, you called your name, I will strongly advise you to just short your stupid mouth and wait for your own predicament out-come of your case, because technically you Mustapha Ruled Nigeria during the Abacha Era, because he Abacha is a clueless and someone who has mental issue,So you act as the PRO and COIN during his time and every atrocity committed during this time is your so called master plan and your wish, and dont forget all the Generals you dealt with are still alive today in Nigeria and the Nemesis will definitely catch up with you sooner or later.

  7. Mr Abacha’s guard dog,be honest enough to also sincerely reveal how Kudirat Abiola,Pa Riwane and Mama Tejuoso died and how Ibru,Abraham Adesanya and others were shot at by government killer squad of which you were the head
