Femi Fani-Kayode, a former Aviation Minister, on Wednesday named those behind the murder of former Nigerian Head of State, Gen Sani Abacha and businessman, MKO Abiola.
Fani-Kayode claimed that Abacha was killed by one of the bodyguards of late Palestinian President, Yasser Arafat.
He claimed that Arafat’s bodyguard poisoned Abacha through a handshake.
In a series of tweets, the former minister alleged that the incident was done with the knowledge of the United States, Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and two former Nigerian heads of state.
He also alleged that the same people were responsible for the death of Abiola.
Buhari govt must arrest killers of Abacha, Abiola – Fani Kayode
According to Fani-Kayode: “Gen. Sani Abacha was killed by one of late Yasser Arafat’s bodyguards. He administered poison to him through a handshake.
“This was done at the behest of the CIA. Two former Nigerian Heads of State and a former Head of Military Intelligence who are also CIA agents knew about the plan.
“The same people decided that MKO Abiola had to be killed as well in order to balance the equation. The CIA, through Susan Rice and Ambassador Pickering, did the rest.
“Nigerians please know your history and find out the truth. Stop accepting the lies that are fed to you and stop brushing evil under the carpet.
“Neither Abacha nor Abiola deserved to be murdered even if we did not all agree with either or both of them. The CIA has no friends and there is nothing more despicable than working for a foreign intelligence agency against ur own people and nation.”
Meanwhile, a former Chief Security Officer of Abacha, Hamza Al-Mustapha had said the former Head of State developed a brief illness that led to his death after a handshake with Arafat’s bodyguard in Abuja.
