Former President Ibrahim Babangida was the best man on the day his friend and coursemate, Major General Mamman Vatsa wedded his heartthrob, Safiya (nee Nwaeza Onwuka), an Efik from Calabar.

However, Mamman Vatsa was later implicated in a plot to overthrow President Ibrahim Babangida in 1985. Vatsa was arrested few days before Christmas in 1985 (four months after the advent of Babangida's presidency), tried by a Special Military Tribunal headed by Major General Charles Ndiomu, and was executed in March 1986.

General Vasta was a traitor, at least to IBB.

He snitched on his friend when he tried to overthrow the current cow in Aso rock by leaking details of his friends coup to him.

When he failed, he tried to plot with LT. col. Musa Bitiyong to overthrow his friend using a farm loan to finance the coup. Karma being a bitch, his ally betrayed him and he was arrested and killed.

IBB only did what any military officer would do

Its sad that it played out the way it did. Planning and, or failing to succesfully execute a coup is a treasonable offence with a defined penalty. Not holding brief for anyone; IBB did what he did out of no option. He would have appeared weak had he spared him, thus opeaning his regime up for more coup, lawlessnes, impunity and what have u. Coup plotters knows that they either succeed or fail. And failure is sure death.

Safiya, nee Nwaeza Onwuka, an Efik from Calabar does not make any sense to me.

There is a high probability that Mamman Vatsa would have killed IBB if he, Vatsa, was successful with the coup. This is an intrigue many people do not understand with life in military.

It's just one of the rules of power

Crush your enemies completely...

There are no sentiments there, it's kill or be killed.

All is fair in love and war, a coup de tat is tantamount to declaration of war.

If you are going to hit the king, make sure you kill the king.

This is something that had to be done.
Vasta made his bed , or was he expecting a cup of tea and a pat on the back.
