Hamza Al-Mustapha, the dreaded former Chief Security Officer to late Gen Sani Abacha is still on his thank you tour across Nigeria to salute the few men (and woman) that were on his side during his long trying times of over 14 years. But what’s the connection with Asari Dokubo in all these?
Let me oblige you guys with the little I know with regards to the connection of these men:
when Al-Mustapha was sentenced to death by a federal high court in Lagos it was a very big issue then, with many northerners insisting that he is innocent.
One of the VERY FEW persons in the South that were openly against the death sentence on Al-Mustapha was Alhaji Asari Dokubo. In fact, Asari described the judgement as an attempt to turn the North against his kinsman, President Goodluck Jonathan. The believe was that if Al-Mustapha was hanged during Jonathan’s administration it will be “impossible” for Jonathan to get any support from the North in 2015.
So, in a nutshell, Asari was against the death sentence on Al-Mustapha. And now that the man is free, his folks would have given him names of his FEW FRIENDS, one of which is Asari Dokubo.
I guess you guys can now decode the reason for Al-Mustapha’s visit to the Niger Delta strong man?
