“Abacha Is Innocent, All Looted Cash Belong To His Successors” – Late General’s Aide, Al-Mustapha

Major Hamza Al-Mustapha, the former Chief Security Officer of late General Sani Abacha, said all the looted money being repatriated was not stolen by his principal.

According to him, the loots were taken from the public and hidden abroad in the late Abacha’s name by his successors.

Al-Mustapha, who spoke on the Voice of America (VOA) Hausa Service monitored in Kaduna on Thursday, faulted reports that millions of dollars were stashed in foreign banks by his late boss.

He said that late Gen. Abacha assumed leadership in Nigeria and found not more than $200 billion in Nigeria’s foreign reserve.

“But before Abacha died, our foreign reserve rose to over $900 billion,” Al Mustapha claimed.

He said the late General had stepped on so many toes while he presided over Nigeria, which is the reason why some people were so angry and could sponsor such kinds of lies against him.

“All the money being repatriated were those stolen by some leaders who served after Abacha’s death,” Al-Mustapha said.

“The late Abacha’s successors in the Presidential Villa were the thieves who stole the billions and hid the money elsewhere.

“I was forced to implicate the leadership of the defunct PTF under President Buhari then, during the military era.

“If there will be a genuine fight against corruption in Nigeria, many people will be arrested.”

This is coming on the heel that the Federal Government is set to repatriate the sum of $321million that was looted by Sani Abacha from the coffers of Nigeria.

The money was seized from a Jersey bank account that belonged to Sani Abacha, and will be shared between the United States, Nigeria and Jersey.
