General Abdulsalami is lying into his grave. This man should respect himself, his old age and not play on our sensibilities. Chief Abiola was killed. Evil people, evil old men and evil politicians who thinks leadership is their birth right poisoned Chief Abiola. That we know!!! Tell us the reason why you failed to release him after you have released all political prisoners.

EVEN 2,3,4 YEARS AGO WHERE WERE YOU. OH, MAYBE YOU JUST REMEMBERED HOW IT HAPPENED. THIS NEW GENERATION OF YORUBAS WON'T BE BOUGHT LIKE THEIR FATHERS. FreeMaziNnamdiKanuNow REFERENDUM

So he was an insider...? I thought only Mustapha and probably Rogers - the 2 chief principal executionísts of the Abacha junta can speak on Abiola's death. So if this 1 is saying something now, then, lots of the fulani/northern officers in the Army back then would be in the know.

He said Abiola but not killed. Speaking in an interview with Trust TV, he explained that this was contrary to insinuations that Abiola took tea that was allegedly poisoned, before he passed on. One year after Igangan invasion by Igboho: Evicted Fulani leader, others seek justice He exonerated Abacha from the plot. General Abdulsalami Abubakar further explained, “Well, I smile because there were lots of allegations here and there that we killed Abiola. Her dominant win set up a clash with world number four and French Open champion Barbora Krejcikova for place in the quarter-finals after the Czech recovered from a set down to overpower 2017 Roland Garros winner Jelena Ostapenko. As always when I am talking about late Abiola, I still thank God for directing me on things to do when he gave me the leadership of this country. “I know there was a lot of pressure for example for him to retire people like Late General Haladu, Late General Duba and General Useini, me inclusive, and some other people but fortunately some of us escaped that scheme,” he said.” He stated that “on the day Moshood Abiola passed away, may he rest in peace, two to three things made him always say he thanked God for the guidance He gave him, adding that he received a delegation from America headed by Pickering who was then the secretary of state or so and the team was Susan Rice. This image grab from a handout video made available by the Ansarullah Media centre on January 21, 2022 shows the aftermath of an overnight Saudi-led coalition strike on a telecommunications hub in Yemen’s rebel-held port city of Hodeidah that triggered a nationwide internet blackout.

” He added that after the normal courtesy and discussion they had, when they were leaving his office, Pickering said, “Your Excellency we made a request to see Moshood Abiola but we were denied”, so I said “Why were you denied? who denied you?” There and then I made a decision, I said “Look, you will see Moshood definitely, I overruled whoever said you cannot see him”. “So I think our relationship with General Abacha went back to our school days and it continued when we found ourselves in the military and by coincidence, during the Civil War, we found ourselves fighting in the same brigade. “I think that kind of mentality, to stay in the present, continue to just do what I can in the moment, that’s been helping me more rather than kind of comparing (to the past),” said the Belarusian, who had her son Leo by her side in her post-match press conference. So I now called my chief security officer, I said “Please make arrangement for this team to see Abiola,” that is one point.” He said that during the incarceration of Moshood Abiola, except his personal doctor, to his knowledge, no member of his family saw him and when he became Head of State, based on consultation and interaction together with Ambassador Babagana Kingibe, he gave the family a date that they could come and see him. So we were operating in the same theatre during the war. He explained that a day before he died, his family came to Abuja to see him, stressing that for one reason or the other, the whole family could not see him at the same time, so it was agreed that when this group of his family will see him today, tomorrow the next team will see him. I think that is something I’m actually learning not to do. He said, “So they saw him like yesterday, now this team from US came to see me and I said they could see him.” General Abubakar, who is credited with the execution of the shortest transition to a civilian administration in Nigeria, also spoke on wide-ranging issues including the drama that preceded his emergence as head of state, the death of Abacha and Abiola and why he chose not to join politics after retirement. “The coalition undertakes to abide by international law and proportionate response in all its military operations,” UAE ambassador to the United Nations Lana Nusseibeh said.

Normally it was in the evenings the family go and see him. So because I had authorized the American team to see him, so the other part of the family were waiting to see him.

Svitolina, who made the quarter-finals in Melbourne in 2018 and 2019, recovered somewhat in the second set and saved five match points, but it was too little too late.” The former Head of State stated that “it was at this meeting when the American team was meeting Abiola that he fell sick and suddenly the security officers called the medical team to come and attend to him”, adding that when they saw the situation, they said it was severe and they needed to take him to the medical centre. He explained that it was the medical team plus the American team that took him to the medical centre, unfortunately at the medical centre he gave up. Quality journalism costs money. General Abdulsalami Abubakar further explained that it was then his security chief called and said, “I have bad news for you”, I asked what it was, he said, “Abiola is dead”. “She seems to kind of elevate her game more and more. Aid workers said hospitals in Saada were overwhelmed after the prison attack, with one receiving 70 dead and 138 wounded, according to Doctors Without Borders.

I was shocked. Your support means that Daily Trust can keep offering journalism to everyone in the world. He said his security chief told him that he was there with the American team, at that time he (former head of state) was staying in the barracks, he had not moved to the villa,saying, “so I said okay, let him take the American team to my house, I will meet them at the house; so I closed from the office, and went there.” The former Head of State stated that the issue was how would he break the news to Abiola’s family and how do his government tell the world Abiola had passed on, saying that he must be thankful to God and again to Ambassador Kingibe because they called on him and asked him to bring the family of Abiola and when they came, he broke the news.” In this article.
