Abacha loot: Emirs and Chiefs were consulted when money was kept overseas ― Al-Mustapha

The former Chief Security Officer (CSO) to former head of state, Abacha, Major Hamza Al-Mustapha in defence of his former boss has stated that the Abacha administration consulted Emirs, Chiefs and VIPs before moving billions of naira now referred to as “Abacha loot” overseas.

Al-Mustapha who was speaking during a program aired on BBC Hausa, monitored by Vanguard said former head of state, General Sani Abacha made such move because “there was a period Nigeria was to be sanctioned”, so there was a need to “keep money overseas so that Nigeria and Nigerians would not suffer, when the sanction was imposed on the country.”

“We gathered Emirs and Chiefs from the South and from the North, together with VIPs of that time, those in government and those not in government.”

He said it was a decision carried out after a meeting with relevant stakeholders and monarchs from all over the country.

According to him, “I’m saying this based on what I know and based on trust to Nigerians, their dignity and honor. ”

“We met at a place called Camp Bassey officer’s mess in the Brigade of Guards. It was there we deliberated on the threat to sanction Nigeria. Many decisions were made.”

“The meeting was also attended by the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Planning, the CBN, etc.”

“It is surprising…. you should know when a person is opening an account, it is that every person that will go to the bank for biometric capture.

“The person’s photograph will be taken, he will avail the bank with the required information, the source of the money, all these are requirements that must be met. The portfolio capital movement, also the time and date of the movement.”

“But for him, that had not gone to these countries where the money was kept, what justification have they to say the accounts belonged to him? Have they ever seen where late Abacha appended his signature or thumbprint that the money belonged to him.?

“I’m surprised by the way Abacha is been blackmailed .”

“I am surprised because when he assumed leadership, Nigeria had less than 2 billion in the foreign reserve. Things were not organised. “.

“But within 4 years and 8 months, he did what was possible to raise it to over 9 billion dollars ”

“But after his death, all these billions vanished in 9 months.”

“The person that raised Nigeria’s image and enhanced security is now the subject of insult. But those who shared the money he left, are still alive and untouchable. ”

“Let me tell you something about Abacha. The 8th coup was being staged to topple him, at the time he died.”

“But Nigerians knew of only 3:coup attempts against Abacha. There were 8 coup attempts, he died when they were plotting the 8th,” he said.

Abacha was a thief, final. Mustapha should mention the chiefs from the south that was part of the senseless agreement.

I wouldn't really call it a loot again, since the money was obviously saved as an investment plan, sadly it has ending in the hands of looters with the present & past governments.

They've ruled this country more than any other region, they own most of the oil wells, they've got massive land at their disposal, they've got hard-working people when it comes to Agriculture, they have all it takes to make their region great, but unfortunately religion and illiteracy won't let them attain it. So unfortunate

Modified: Don't be deceived, southern leaders were not consulted, they're only trying to justify Abacha's loot and share part of the guilt to southerners.

Can't stop laughing.

So everybody now is a ZONE B that can believe anything thrown at us.

Is hiding our money in private in a foreign bank account the only way to protect us from sanctions? What do I know sef

I know these northerners will continue to justify Abacha loot at all cost. No wonder you hardly see any of their thief politicians go to jail.

We have even seen the ones whose kids lie on top of money. Funny thing is that their loots has continued to enslave their region. And some people believed stealing started and ended in Jonathan era. I know people stole under Jonathan but stealing under Buhari is the worst.

Let me also highlight that the Northern over thirst for power and their stealing the country will continue to make the country remain as it is. Thank God they are the worst hit.

One way or the other, God will continue to help his people. God bless NK

Oga Mustapha, you think any of those invited to the meeting would say anything against the wish of Sani Abacha?

.A man that died and throw the whole nation into jubilation, you can imagine how terrible it would be to go against his wish when u are under his roof. Even when you are far away from him your safety is not guaranteed.


If he told them that Nigeria flag is yellow they dear not say otherwise

No matter what anybody says, one thing I know is that most of our leaders stole even more than Abacha. There is much focus on Abacha because he is dead. IBB's unaccounted for $12b, OBJ's untreacable $16B power spending and the rest are more than what Abacha stole. The school feeding programmes when pupils are on break, untraceable social investment programmes gulping billions in PMB's administration. We can't even talk about Gej and the missing oil billions.
