Al-Mustapha, Sofolahan To Die By Hanging


The former Chief Security Officer (CSO) to the former Head of State, late
General Sani Abacha, Major Hamzat Al-Mustapha and a former personal
assistant to the late Kudirat Abiola, Lateef Shofolahan have been
sentenced to death by hanging for conspiracy in the murder of Late Chief
MKO Abiola’s wife.
Al-Mustapha and Sofolahan among others have been facing a celebrated
trial for the assassination of Kudirat, wife of the presumed winner of the
annulled June 12, 1993 presidential election, Late Chief Abiola.
The election was annulled by then military President General Ibrahim
Babangida for incomprehensible reasons.
Justice Mojisola Dada of the Lagos High Court, Igbosere, handed out the
sentence on Monday.
