Shocking details of how Abacha died in 1998 – Al-Mustapha

Shocking details of how Abacha died in 1998

By Eric Patrick

Former Chief Security Officer, CSO, to the late Head of State,

Gen Sani Abacha, Major Hamza Al-Mustapha, has revealed shocking

claims that Abacha died after eating an apple from his


Narrating how the former Head of State died, Al-Mustapha said

contrary to insinuations, the sudden collapse of the health

system of Abacha started on “Sunday, 7th June, 1998 right

from the Abuja International Airport, immediately after one of

the white security operatives or personnel who accompanied

President Yasser Arafat of Palestine shook hands with him,


Al-Mustapha said shortly after the hand shake, he “noticed the

change in the countenance of the late Commander-in-Chief and

I informed the Aide-de-Camp, Lt. Col. Abdallah, accordingly.

He, however, advised that we keep a close watch on the Head

of State.”

He said, “Later in the evening of 8th June, 1998, around 6p.m;

his doctor came around, administered an injection to stabilize

him. He was advised to have a short rest.

Happily, enough, by 9p.m; the Head of State was bouncing and receiving visitors until much later when General Jeremiah Timbut Useni, the then

Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, came calling. He was fond of the Head of State. They were very good friends.

“They stayed and chatted together till about 3.35a.m. A friend

of the house was with me in my office and as he was bidding

me farewell, he came back to inform me that the FCT Minister,

General Useni was out of the Head of State’s Guest House

within the Villa. I then decided to inform the ADC and other

security boys that I would be on my way home to prepare for

the early morning event at the International Conference Centre.

“At about 5a.m; the security guards ran to my quarters to

inform me that the Head of State was very unstable. At first, I

thought it was a coup attempt. Immediately, I prepared myself

fully for any eventuality. As an intelligence officer and the Chief

Security Officer to the Head of State for that matter, I devised

a means of diverting the attention of the security boys from my

escape route by asking my wife to continue chatting with them

at the door – she was in the house while the boys were

outside. From there, I got to the Guest House of the Head of

State before them.

“When I got to the bedside of the Head of State, he was

already gasping. Ordinarily, I could not just touch him. It was

not allowed in our job. But under the situation on ground, I

knelt close to him and shouted, ‘General Sani Abacha, Sir,

please grant me permission to touch and carry you.’

“I again knocked at the stool beside the bed and shouted in

the same manner, yet he did not respond. I then realized there

was a serious danger. I immediately called the Head of State’s

personal physician, Dr. Wali, who arrived the place under eight

minutes from his house. He immediately gave Oga – General

Abacha –two doses of injection, one at the heart and another

close to his neck.

“This did not work apparently as the Head of State had turned

very cold. He then told me that the Head of State was dead

and nothing could be done after all. I there and then asked the

personal physician to remain with the dead body while I

dashed home to be fully prepared for the problems that might

arise from the incident.

“As soon as I informed my wife, she collapsed and burst into

tears. I secured my house and then ran back. At that point, the

Aide-de-Camp had been contacted by me and we decided that

great caution must be taken in handling the grave situation.

“Again, I must reiterate that the issue of my boss dying on top

of women was a great lie just as the insinuation that General

Sani Abacha ate and died of poisoned apples was equally a

wicked lie.”
