Al-Mustapha Family alleges plot to kill him


Family of the detained former Chief Security Officer, CSO to the late General Sani Abacha, Major Hamza Al-Mustapha has uncovered plot to assassinate him in prison.

Spokesman of the family, Alhaji Hadi Al-Mustapha told Journalist that the weight of the revelation made by the former CSO has now put his life in danger with rumors of his possible assassination.

"There have been rumors that he would be killed, and with the revelations he made in court, we are now at a heightened state of fear", Alhaji Al-Mustapha said.

The family is therefore asking President Goodluck Jonathan to as a matter of urgency provide adequate security for Major Al-Mustapha and around his prison custody

The alleged plot to kill Al-Mustapha is coming just days after his shocking revelations in a Lagos Court that his continued incarceration and trial are as a result of the alleged role he played shortly after the death of the late head of state, General Sani Abacha.

Al-Mustapha, a former Chief Security Officer to the late Head of State Gen. Abacha, last week alleged that a former National Security Adviser, Maj. Gen. Abdullahi Mohammed, to ex-Head of State, Gen. Abdulsalami Abubakar, had withdrawn $200million, £75million and N500milion from the CBN in 1998.

He alleged that the strange withdrawal was meant to bribe Yoruba leaders after the death of the acclaimed winner of the June 12, 1993 presidential election, the late Chief M.K.O Abiola.
