Major Hamza Al-Mustapha, the former head of security for the late Head of State, Gen Sani Abacha, has recounted how the former chief died.

Al-Mustapha said that Abacha did not die after eating an apple from his concubines, as was widely speculated.

Speaking about how his late boss died, the former CSO said that Abacha died after a brief illness.

According to ThisDay, Al-Mustapha said that the late military ruler’s health suddenly collapsed on June 7, 1998, from Abuja International Airport, after one of the security personnel, accompanying President Yasser Arafat of Palestine , shake his hand.

Al-Mustapha said: “Shortly after the handshake, I noticed the change in the late Commander-in-Chief’s countenance, and immediately informed the aide-de-camp, Lieutenant-Colonel Abdallah, who advised me to keep a close eye on him.

“Later on the night of June 8, 1998, around 6 pm, his doctor came over and gave him an injection to stabilize him. He was advised to get some rest.

“At approximately 5 in the morning, the security guards rushed to my accommodation to inform me that Abacha was very unstable.”

Al-Mustapha revealed that he thought the officers who arrived at his home were an attempted coup plot, so he had to divert his attention from their movement to the Abacha residence.

He added: “When I got to the bedside of the Head of State, I was already panting. Usually he couldn’t just touch it. It was not allowed in our work. But under the situation, I knelt near him and yelled, ‘General Sani Abacha, sir, please grant me permission to touch and carry him.

“I called back to the stool next to the bed and yelled in the same way, but he didn’t answer. Then I realized that there was a danger. I immediately called the Head of State’s personal physician, Dr. Wali, who arrived at the scene in eight minutes from his home. He immediately gave Abacha two doses of injection, one in the heart and one near his neck. This apparently did not work, as the Head of State had become very cold.

“Then he told me that the Head of State was dead and that, after all, nothing could be done.”
