The secret behind MKO Abiola’s death

Yoruba leaders knew who killed MKO Abiola. Al-Mustapha He said
the Yoruba leaders received bribe in dollars from killers of MKO.
Major Hamza Al- Mustapha, a former Chief Security Officer (CSO)
to late Head of State, Gen. Sani Abacha, on Monday said some
Yoruba leaders led by Chief Ayo Opadokun knew those that killed
the presumed winner of the June 12, 1993 presidential election,
Chief M.K.O. Abiola. Mustapha was speaking with newsmen in
Kaduna on Monday, shortly after attending a meeting arranged to
broker peace between the North and the South-East parts of
country. He said the Yoruba leaders received bribe in dollars from
killers of MKO. According to him, Opadokun led others to the Aso
Rock Villa to meet Abiola’s killers, but came out laughing after
receiving dollars just a day after the business mogul was killed.
He said: “Chief Opadokun is someone I respect so much as an
elder. But what came out in the newspaper was his own
imagination and falsehood against me. If you know my character,
you will know that I will not be scared to say the truth. It does not
matter who, it does not matter where, but you will later realise that
I told you the truth. I initially didn’t want to reply him, but now that
you have asked, I will tell you what happened. “When Abiola died,
a day after the politician’s death, he (Opadokun) was invited to the
Presidency and he came to the Villa alongside his friends. He
came with anger into the Villa. Those who killed Abiola invited him
to the Villa. At that material time, they came to fight the
government and they wanted to set the country ablaze considering
the tone they came with. They went into the meeting, they came
out laughing and yelling as if nothing happened in the country. “A
day after Abiola’s death if you remember, the country was on the
verge of collapse. But seeing what was going on and the things
around Abiola led me to suspect them. “I had not handed over the
Villa to Abdulsalami Abubakar’s government then, so I decided to
video tape what they were doing and I have the tape and I have
tendered the tape before a court of law, before Justice Mojisola
Dada of the Lagos High Court. “In that tape, money exchanged
hands. They traded with Abiola and that is my anger. The tape is
in the court. Anybody that wants to watch can get it and watch. it
is now a public document. I didn’t want to talk about it before, but
money was brought from CBN in my presence and it was shared.
