The former Chief Security Officer (CSO) to late Gen. Sani Abacha, Major Al-mustapha (rtd) has revealed that he has a letter in his possession that will assist the Supreme Court Judges in the case against him by the Lagos State government.

Al-Mustapha in an interview with TV 360 Friday said from the moment his boss died, charges were contrived and proffered against him as an attempt to nail him.

This is even as he said the option to deal with him was to ‘’elongate his torture till he perishes naturally.

He made this revelation against the backdrop of Lagos state government’s leave to appeal the conviction and reversal of death-by-hanging handed out on him by Justice M.A Dauda on January 30, 2012.

Al-Mustapha, however, said that the letter in his possession, purportedly written by the Special Investigation Panel (SIP) will shed more light on what went wrong in the past and help set the record straight.

“It would set the record straight and equally reveal what happened in the past,”



  1. Only in Nigeria people make a mockery of the judiciary by discussing in the media an on going case. if he has a letter he should tender it in court as an evidence. Besides, this guy with his boss did horribles things in power that he should not be free to roam the streets. It is certainly not a case of people trying to nail him, it is a case of having so much to answer for.
