Al Mustapha's Family Alerts Over Campaign Of Calumny


KANO, June 09, (THEWILL) - Families of the former Chief Security Officer to late head of state General Sani Abacha, Major Hamza Al Mustapha has expressed worry over what they called a campaign of calumny been orchestrated by one Aminu Ado Yerima against the embattled former security chief on the pages of newspapers.

According to a press statement signed by Hadi Al Mustapha and made available THEWILL in Kano, the family described as 'wicked and uncharitable' the action of the Yerima who the family noted ‘specialized in fraudulent imitation of Al Mustapha’s voice.

According to the statement Yerima who operates between Kaduna and Lagos is fond of calling media Houses and granting interviews under the guise that he is the embattled major.

The Family stated that the impostor is under the sponsorship of a powerful individual that have styled themselves as ‘enemies of Al Mustapha family, stressing that they will be compelled to name them at appropriate time.

"We know who is behind him and we shall expose the self style enemy of the family, enemy of the state at an appropriate time for patriots to see and judge," the statement maintained.

Hadi Al Mustapha explains that the said Aminu Ado Yerima known in the security circle is allegedly behind recent story linking the major with Christianity, and other publications in soft sell magazines that also credited the former CSO to name calling over those involved in the recent Nigerian dark history.

The statement further accused the suspected impostor of having the penchant of impersonating Al Mustapha’s calling and raining of uncharitable words on Elder statesmen for doing nothing about his long incarceration in prison, adding that the suspect sometimes solicits for financial support from highly placed persons running into hundreds of millions of Naira.

The statement stressed that Aminu Ado who was caught by the security agents in Lagos in 2009 with telephone lines of over 24 world leaders, and that of some highly placed Nigerians, over 200 GSM sim cards allegedly confessed to the police that 'I was the one that telephoned former President Obasanjo' over what was known then as a security breach by the imprisoned major.
